Nothing against the Simplicity sewing patterns of yore, but these Oliver + S patterns are the cutest thing ever.
The clothing designs are classic bordering on retro, the style names are adorable (Secret agent trench coat! Roller skate dress!), and perhaps best of all, the packaging is gorgeous. American Girl fans might recognize the Rockwell-esque drawings of one Dan Andreasen, known for illustrating the first generation of that book series.
