  6. Olabelhe! I just wish I had a little girl to sew them for (I have two sweet little boys) - so I guess it would be Oliver + S if I'm sewing something for them.

    1. Oliver + S patterns are just precious! My daughter will be 2 soon, so I can try a few Olabelhe patterns for her soon. It's hard to find cute things to sew for the little boys once they're past a certain age, isn't it?

  8. Finally I have a little girl baby to sew for! I have been scared to sew clothes for as while now, as I have a strange body shape and it's difficult for me to fit them properly.. but I have found it's much easier to sew little girls clothes! I have only just started, so don't know any designers really, but i would love to make a start with this book! :)
