Cecile made this ruffled halter- love the picture collage.
Lazy days skirt! Love it, Jenny.
Two absolutely perfect family reunion dresses from Cindy.
Love Melissa's picnic blouse and shorts. Those are just about the cutest shorts in the history of shorts.
Are you kidding with this backpack? Adorable Amanda! Can't wait for us to make this one.
Ice Cream dresses! All-time favorite dress pattern of all time. Ever. And a family reunion in Sherbet Pips fabric? I'm dying, Sarah. You've killed me.
Bucket Hats, Bubble Dress, and paper doll art (great idea!) all by Sharon. She has actually made WAY more Oliver & S than I could ever post here, so go look around her blog. It's really inspiring how much she makes for her kids!
Another ruffled halter, a music box dress, and boy's nature walk pullover by Nicole. She has lots more O&S goodness on her blog, and I love seeing homemade clothes on kids that are a little bit older than you normally see in blog land... hmm, I wish I hadn't just said blog land...
Moving on, Jojo's super cute Seashore Sundress.
Boy shirt! I'm always super impressed by anyone who tackles a button-up boy shirt. I don't even know if they are that hard to make, but they seem like it. I'm not worthy, Jodi.
OK, I'm so intimidated by you people, I quit the sew-along.
Just jokes :)
I think this just speaks to how great Oliver & S patterns are. They are clear and simple and turn-out an amazing product. I think this sew-along will be great for all levels, even if you are new to using actual sewing patterns. Each Oliver & S pattern is like taking a mini sewing lesson, and it will be even better with all of us talking each other through it.
I was so excited when a friend of mine on facebook told me the other day that she was joining in and had just ordered her book. She said she is a beginner sewer, but she's diving right in! Love that.
Bucket hats are a go tomorrow. I'll walk you through how I like to trace and cut out my patterns, and talk about interfacing and cute fabrics. Leave me a comment if you are deciding to join in!
(p.s. Thanks to everyone who has been spreading the word. Oliver & S actually caught wind and tweeted about the sew along. How cool is that?)
