Reseña del editor
Oiver + S Little Things to Sew is a collection of 20 accessories and other small sewing projects to make for children from Oliver + S, a successful new sewing pattern company headed by popular designer Liesl Gibson. The company Oliver + S is known for blending its fresh, modern style with a classic sensibility, as well as for its detailed, easy to follow pattern instructions. Projects in Oliver + S: Little Things to Sew include whimsical yet practical items for children, such as a hat, scarf, vest, tutu, art smock, backpack, messenger bag and quilt. Two pullout pattern sheets provide sewers with all of the instruction they need to be successful. In addition, the Oliver + S LIttle Things To Sew package includes two cardstock paper dolls and illustrations of projects from the book for the paper dolls to wear. (The illustrations are printed on the book's dust jacket and can be cut out.) Oliver + S is known for including paper dolls images with all of their individual patterns, so including the paper dolls in the book is a natural celebration of their brand and also sets this book apart from all others (see oliverands.com).
