Back to School in Style: Uniforms with Oliver & S

It is day two of our week of looking at fantastic patterns that you can use for your kiddos that need to wear uniforms to school.  And of course the flip side - how fun those same patterns can be when given free reign. 

Today our sponsor is Whimsical Fabric.  They provided the Fabric for both of these cool boy looks as well as the Oliver&S patterns.  Whimsical Fabric is a great one stop shop for both killer cottons and amazing twills and cords.  You can get everything you need for your back to school sewing in one place - saving on shipping - and who doesn't need to save at this time of year!!!


Most of you know that I, Suzanne, LOVE sewing for my boys!!!  Although my boys don't wear uniforms for school, I took the uniform look because I love having classic neutrals in my kids' closets.  I did some research into our area to come up with what the general school uniforms are so that I could base my look on that.



School Uniform Guidelines:

  • Button Up or Polo Shirt in White, Navy or School color.
  • Slacks or shorts in Khaki, Navy, Black or Grey. (no cargo pockets)
  • No logos on outerwear or backpacks.



Denita here and I'd like to extend a special thank you to Diedelbug Handmade for providing the lunchbox pattern and Whimsical Fabrics for providing the fabric and Oliver&S Patterns.
