Oliver + S Pattern Giveaway

February 1, 2011

Oliver + S Pattern Giveaway

I have two Oliver + S Patterns to giveaway.
There are two sizes of patterns for the School Days Jacket and Coat.
The first is 6 months to 3T.
The second is 4T to 8T.
If you would like one of these please leave a comment that includes your e-mail and size preference.

I've started a dress for Freya.
The pattern is circa 1968 and it far exceeds my sewing abilities.
I like the challenge.

I can't decide which fabric to use for the collar.
Which do you all think looks best?

I popped in to the thrift store today and found this wonderful pink bonnet girl.

I cost 75 cents as you can see.

In 2006 the picture cost $2.00.
A sign of the economic down turn?
Two giveaway winners will be chosen on Friday.
Happy February!


  1. Oh, I would love the pattern!... I almost bought that one last week, but for some reason; did not. That picture is awesome. LOVEit! I like the top pink fabric personally.
    Oh, and 4t-8t would be my choice! Thanks so much!

  2. eee really?! no way! i would love the 4-8t but i think i will have to fight brooke for it ;)

    the pattern is lovely. the fabric for the dress are so pretty. do you find the older instructions more difficult? i don't think i've worked my way through a vintage pattern yet, though i have a couple in my stash.

  3. Looking forward to seeing what you create, I love craft blogs! I would love to win the 4t-8t pattern :) Thanks!

  4. wow these are so cute--i am not a good enough sewer yet to tackle these patterns, but they look so great! i think go for the pink fabric! makes it vintage with a modern twist!

  5. I'd love that little pattern...

  6. I like the red fabric. Love it!!
    I need your advice on how to start sewing for my daughter. Do you think I should take classes or just learn with simple patterns and keep increasing the difficulty.
