See Liesl Gibson's New Pattern Line, Liesl + Co.!By DianeSev on 10/21/13 11:18 AM

Liesl Gibson has a new pattern line!

You know her for Oliver + S and Lisette. Now comes Liesl + Co., a line of downloadable patterns for women.

You'll love these versatile, everyday styles. And Liesl assures us that the patterns feature the same innovative construction methods and detailed instructions that you've come to expect from her Oliver + S patterns. Creating these approachable patterns is a project that she's wanted to take on for awhile. She calls them "stylish, flattering pieces" and says that they are easy to fit and quick to sew.

Here's a preview of the Liesl + Co. line, complete with fabric suggestions from Elliott Berman Textiles!

I can see myself in the getaway dress made of the printed poly crepe de chine, from France and possibly wearing this dress in Paris one day:)
