Oliver + S Patterns: Spring / Summer Release

Hooray!  Oliver+S have just released their spring/summer children's clothing patterns and we have them in the shop.  Watch out, these are really cute.

As usual, we have three designs, each in two size ranges: 6m-4y and 5-12y.  Let me introduce you to them...

First off, we have this fantastic Secret Agent Trench Coat.  This is such a brilliant idea, practical and stylish, the trench can be made in the tradition style with will suit boys and girls, or for your girls you can make the dropped-waist version that has a little skirt. 

Then, we have the Croquet Dress which is a hugely versatile dress.  You can make plain versions and fancy versions with plenty of opportunities for contrast fabrics and fancy trims.  It has short sleeves and a dropped waist, gathered simply with elastic.  This is a dress for every day and for those special occasions.

Finally, we have a the Badminton Skort, Top and Dress.  This is the super sneaky style, which has hidden shorts underneath the skirt, which means cartwheels without showing the whole park your knickers!  The skirt also has a, bang on trend, scalloped hem.  The matching top is a perfect summer vest with pretty ruffles at the shoulder.

 A fantastic trio of patterns I'm sure you will agree.

In this shipment we were able to restock on our most popular styles such as the Family Reunion Dress.  And, don't forget, we are having a clear out in the Oliver+S patterns.  A huge selection of the older styles are on sale at 20% off.  We will not be getting these back in, and many are already out of print, so get them whilst you can.


  1. I love the shorts-under-the-dress idea! I would never have realised that from the picture, great idea, practical and pretty. I also really like the drop-waisted trench coat, blue with red buttons is a definite winner.

  2. Yup, it's the coat that does it for me too! A
