CraftSanity Podcast Episode 106: Go behind the scenes with Oliver + S Children’s Clothing Pattern Designer Liesl Gibson

by jennifer

On this episode of CraftSanity, Liesl Gibson shares the story of how she started her Brooklyn-based pattern company, Oliver + S. If you lurk around sewing blogs or frequent an independent fabric shop, you’ve probably seen her classic line that features darling designs to sew for girls and boys.

Each pattern comes with a paper doll that sports the designs featured in the patten. And to boost the cute factor even higher, Oliver + S just released a spool dog cut-out as seen in the photo above.

From the fashion district to Wall Street, Liesl’s path to launching her own line of children’s clothing patterns is entertaining and inspiring. Tune in to hear Liesl chat about everything from her childhood days watching her mother sew to working in the fashion industry, and the challenges of running a handmade business.

sethstorm,Texas companies are not treating their workers like cattle. Very few are offshoring jobs. On the other hand, many foreign companies have opened plants and divisions in Texas and other right-to-work states acros the South. Texas and other Southern U.S. companies have wisely expanded to other countries, creating new jobs not only in the foreign countries but in the U.S. headquarters as well.Quite frankly, sir, you know damn little about Texas and the corporations which exist there today.

Kiwiguy,This is an apples and oranges comparison. In New York City, third-generation hispanics are overwhelmingly Puerto Rican with some Cuban exiles. First-generation hispanics are much more Dominican and Mexican.So the data could reflect the effects of assimilation. Or it could be an ethnic difference. Impossible to tell.

I’ve heard Tracfone is the only alternative that is fairly anonymous. You buy them at the Family Dollar store (or WalMart), and there’s no identification linked to them. I don’t know if that’s true, but it’s an idea.
