How exciting is this? Today the amazingly talented Liesl Gibson (sewing pattern and fabric designer, blogger, and creator of Oliver+S) has agreed to talk to us about sewing for boys and how details can really make boys’ clothing special! Liesl will also be giving away a set of three boys patterns from the the Oliver + S collection!
I had the pleasure of meeting Liesl last summer at the Weekend Sewing Workshop in Vermont and it was so much fun watching her work and learning from her! Turns out we went to the same college and her parents knew my aunt and uncle in grad school once upon a time. Small world! I hope you all have the chance to meet her someday; in addition to being a fantastic designer she is one of the sweetest human beings on the planet.

In her post today, Liesl’s going to show us some adorable boy clothes that customers have sewn from her patterns. Liesl’s upcoming book, Oliver+S Little Things to Sew, also features many patterns that are perfect for boys. I am SO excited for this book (and as of yesterday: it’s now available)!!!
