After earning a degree in fashion design from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), Liesl Gibson worked as a designer for several top fashion brands, including Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren. In 2007, Liesl started her own firm, Liesl + Co., to bring style-conscious, fashion forward design to home sewing enthusiasts.

In 2008 Liesl + Co. launched its first brand, Oliver + S, which produces sewing patterns and fabrics for children's clothing. Liesl launched Lisette in the spring of 2011. She also currently designs the Liesl + Co. brand of sewing patterns for women's apparel and the Straight Stitch Society line of patterns.

Since 2015, Lisette patterns have been produced and distributed by The McCall Pattern Company under their Butterick brand. Lisette patterns are available worldwide wherever Butterick patterns are sold. (Prior to that, Lisette patterns were produced and distributed by the Simplicity Creative Group under the Simplicity brand.)

Lisette fabrics are produced and distributed by Fabric Traditions. They are available in the United States at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores and at Spotlight stores in Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore.
