Introducing OUSM Designs
Hi all! We are excited to introduce ourselves. A mother/daughter team that has been working together for a long time. I started sewing in my early 20's and it did not take too long before I was changing patterns and designing clothing for my children. I have sewn for a bridal store as well as working for a company that was known for mixing fabrics and garments that were sewn in a strip quilting fashion. Rachel learned to sew when she was in 4-H and continued to sew throughout her high school and college years.
As I became more serious in my quest to design children clothing, we decided to join forces and start a business. We live six hours apart and sometimes things get difficult, but with better technology and video conferencing, we have been able together.
Our patterns hold true to the time honored classic look. We add a twist here and there that will keep you interested. Our pattern treasury continues to grow.
Our Ruffled PJ Pattern is a classic girl's pajama patten good for those transition seasons. The Button Up Jumper is a square neck jumper with deep pockets that slips over your little one's head and then buttons at the waist. Great for school days, or make it out of a fancy fabric for the holidays. Lighten it up with cotton floral for the warmer seasons.
Our newest release is the Grown Up Thumbs Up, which is the companion to our Thumbs Up Tee shirt. The Grown Up comes with a maternity option, for those of you sewing with a baby bump. This pattern comes with sleeve length options and a shirt and tunic option as well.
The color blocking is great for up cycling your favorite knit tees. The Grown Up and Kid's Thumbs Up are available as a bundle too! Visit the Etsy Shop
Happy Sewing, Donna and Rachel
