I so love the blue paneled dress and check out those brown bell bottom pants, cool ! The peacock applique is also included in this issue.
This issue has 39 patterns in total and sizes ranging from 56cm (baby) to 170cm ( i just realized that I can use the patterns for moi :) ) They're really modern, fresh european styles, from pants to leggings to blouses and skirts, jackets and even a cool flanel sweatshirt. The detailed slim fit jeans are sexy huh, I bet Shasha is going to want that !
Here's an example of the patterns. They are all color coded and pattern pieces are marked and construction instructions are in the magazines as below.
You can view the full issue here. Just click on the last issue (1/2011) and start browsing .
Good news to my Malaysian sewing enthusiasts who have been trying to get this mag, I can get them for you in English of course! They will be posted out mid march by poslaju from KL, so please browse through the Ottobre site and let me know which issue you would like, back issues included. The Female Ottobre is also awesome!
1 issue will be for Rm55, subsequent ones will be at RM52 (inc poslaju). Email me at email@example.com for banking details. Please specify the issue number that you would like and how many copies. Please hurry as I need time to order from the publisher, thanks.
Cherios from me, I so long for my sewing machine and fabrics right now ! Do drop me an email or a comment for further info, and maybe soon we can have an Ottobre sew along in Malaysia :)
