Oliver + S just released three new patterns and we are so excited to have them. The first up is the Garden Party Dress + Blouse, a sweet and springy dress. I love the shirring detail on the front. A perfect party dress for the spring and summer.

Also released is the Hide and Seek Dress + Tunic. I love how the yoke can showcase a favorite fabric. I think this is one of those patterns that I like but then fall in love with once I get it made.

Last but not least is the Lullaby Layette Set which comes in sizes newborn through 24-months. Think really cute onesie made from gorgeous fabrics. They used the Palos Verdes voiles and I can only imagine how soft these are for the baby. What a perfect shower gift!

If you haven’t tried the Oliver + S patterns before, I highly suggest you do. Start with some of the easier ones like the Seashore Sundress or Playtime Tunic. Their patterns are so well written and easy to follow. The small details they include make your garment look so well made and take your sewing skills to the next level.

We have all the patterns in PDF format and will be getting the paper versions next week. Send us an email if you’d like us to hold one for you. I personally love the PDF versions .. instant gratification and can print out only the pieces I need without having to mess with all that tissue.

A little birdie told me that someone special I know is having a little girl.  I love little girls!!!!  And as luck would have it, these Cuddle Blanket kits arrived yesterday evening….so I knew exactly what I had to do.  Make one, of course!

These kits are AWESOME! The pieces are pre-cut and ready to sew (even the binding!). I finished in an hour – and that was with taking some breaks to check facebook and twitter. LOL Easy instructions are included with each kit – and they also give you lots of tips – so if you’ve never sewn with minkee before, do not fear!

I have 8 kits in the store and all are super super cute fabric combinations. I’ll be making another tonight since I also know of a little boy that will be arriving before too long!  Use the code BABY to get 10% off!!!  Find them here.
