So here it is, the Overlap T-Shirt sizes preemie to 2-3 and the Harem 3/4 Pants sizes newborn to 6 years.  This collection is appealing as it forms the basis of a littles ones wardrobe.


The Overlap T-Shirt includes pattern pieces for both short and long sleeves, as well as an optional ribbing lower band.

The Harem 3/4 Pants is very simple and quick-to-sew.  Perfect for lounging around the house or going down the street.  They are slightly oversized around the hip area for a relaxed fit, and feature a cuffed leg, drop harem crotch and elastic waist.

Summer has definitely arrived and it’s hot over here.  I thought it’s a great time to sew up my first  Oliver + S pattern. After scrolling through I decided on the Sketchbook shorts pattern.  The fabric is Rustic weave by moda, purchased from my local fabric shop Rudy and Kate.

It took me a little while to decide on making either a size 4 or 5, as sizing is 6M to 4 or 5 to 12 and Coop’s is a size 4. Ultimately I went with fit, the size 4 is perfection.

I love the simplicity of the shorts, with its elastic waist and mock fly, yet the final result is a slightly tailored finish.
