Fall means new patterns from our favorite designers! Oliver + S just released three new patterns and they’re exactly what we expect from Liesl; Oliver + S consistently gives us darling clothes kids love to play in, with a classic and modern look– the perfect mix! We called on our Contributor Community to show us their takes on these new patterns. Christina from The DIY Mommy, Becky from Patchwork Posse, Beth of 110 Creations, Vanessa from Punkin Patterns, Janice of Better Off Thread and Mary from Mary on Lake Pulaski sewed up the Library Dress, Art Museum Vest + Trousers or the Playtime Dress, Tunic + Leggings.
We showed you little- and big-kid versions of the Playtime Dress, Tunic + Leggings yesterday. Today we have Mary from Mary on Lake Pulaski and Janice of Better Off Thread with their Art Museum Vest + Trousers!
Mary from Mary on Lake Pulaski writes, “There is great detailing on the lined vest: front welt pocket and three button closing… The trousers have a faux fly, belt loops, side pockets, back welt pockets [and a] lined 3/4 elastic waist. This is an excellent pattern instructing all of the details that make this vest and trousers so cute.” Mary will meet up with Vincent later to give him his new Art Museum Vest + Trousers; we’re sure he’ll look great! For more photos plus fabric info visit Mary on Lake Pulaski.
Janice from Better Off Thread made the Art Museum Vest + Trousers for four year old Liam. She also really loved the details in this pattern. Janice writes, “I have adored Oliver + S patterns ever since I made the Family Reunion Dress for Emmeline’s first birthday. The patterns are simple, classic designs, with beautiful details that really give a garment a professional look… I have made many, many welt pockets (though it’s probably been 10 years!) and I found the Oliver + S technique to be the easiest I have ever done. Don’t let them scare you. Once you make your first welt pocket, you’ll be a pro!… I love the bias tape binding along the edge of the pant’s facing. The great thing is that you can do all the beautiful details, or you can choose to make the garments simpler and quicker and just stick to the basics.” Liam loved his new clothes!

Tomorrow we’ll show you two versions of the Library Dress!
