    That is so fascinating about the ASTM children’s clothing standards, @todd. Does a similar standard exist for adult patterns?

  • What a fun thread! @meleliza, I also love the Christmas in the city atmosphere, although I have yet to experience the cities you mentioned! During the years I lived in the Chicago area, we would often brave the wind chill and go down to Michigan Ave.

    My most spectacular holiday experiences would definitely have to be the few times I spent NYE on…[Read more]

    Sanga – sandwich
    snag – sausage
    loo – toilet

    That’s hopefully remembering correctly – it’s been over 10 years since I’ve lived in AUS! I’ve had too many influences on my colloquial English over the years and now have a mishmash vocabulary (and a currently Chicago/Midwest accent). I find myself adopting the lingo of wherever I live, but for the…[Read more]

    Thanks for the encouragement and replies!

    Nicole, I actually just bought that pattern a couple weeks ago and can’t wait to put it to use.

    I hope you all don’t mind me jumping in this conversation despite being pretty new around here. I read back a few pages and all the projects sound so lovely.

    Hi everyone, I’m pretty new around here! I discovered Oliver + S through my sister and absolutely love the designs. I am currently just sewing for my two little girls (a 2 year old and a 9 month old), but hope to branch out into more tailored outfits for myself as well. It’s hard to carve out sewing time with my two eager “helpers”, but slow and…[Read more]
