Children’s clothing has come a long way since I was a tot. I distinctly remember my mother putting me in some very, er, questionable ensembles usually consisting of a sort of ribbon motif or lace bib. Not so for the modern babe, these days kids have better clothing options than adults! That’s why you might, on occasion, catch me in the children’s department trying to squeeze my way into a child’s size 16 sweater or jacket (I mean, it basically equals an adult size 2, right?) Children’s sewing patterns have come a long way too, mostly with the help of Liesl Gibson. Her company, Oliver + S, creates some of the cutest kids patterns on the market and we at BurdaStyle are excited to announce that you can now buy Liesl’s adorable patterns through her BurdaStyle studio! I caught up with Liesl to get the scoop on how she started Oliver + S and what inspires her cute and quirky designs.
