While I was in New York, I had the opportunity to visit the Oliver + S studio in Brooklyn. Liesl was kind enough to contact me a while back and since I mentioned I’d be visiting NY soon, invited me over so we could meet.
If you’re not already familiar with Oliver + S, you ought to be, but especially if you have any wee ones in your life. Liesl designs some outstanding children’s patterns, which you can judge for yourself from the designs. They are completely adorable but still so fresh and modern. And needless to say, people love them. Sew Mama Sew even named them the best pattern company of the decade. How’s that for high marks?
Their studio really reflects the lovely, cheerful style of the patterns. In a bright little loft with tons of natural light, we had tea and talked business while I admired the shelves of carefully organized fabric, wonderful sample garments hanging on the brick walls, and the patterned birds on branches suspended above the desk.
