I thought I would share some images from the new Ottobre women's magazine. There are some patterns in it that I would like to sew and some that I would not! I am planning on canceling my subscription now as I feel I have enough patterns to keep me going. Some of the styling here is not to my taste, though I always try and look past the styling and study the line drawings.
I like the jersey dress although I think I would like it in a solid fabric. The text by it suggests you will need control underwear to go with this dress! hmmmmm...kinda puts me off. I also don't want to have to just breathe in while wearing a dress.

I like the stripey tee. Always good to have tee shirt patterns. I am tempted to make these. I can see that I also like the styling of the pictures here, and the model's short hair. So am I swayed by the pretty pictures into choosing what to sew?I think this tunic tee would be a good wardrobe staple for me. I wonder what it looks like if she turns sideways though. I like the little pockets. I am thinking of making this one.
I am intrigued by the parka - I would love the challenge of making a practical coat. Do I dare take on a complex project though? One that would require proper fabric buying? I seem to be drawn to making quite functional garments at the moment...jeans, tees and now a parka. Whatever happened to sewing pretty dresses?
But urgh, I don't like the turquoise knit jacket . I don't even like it in the line drawing.
I guess there is a nice simple dress there...it's just that fabric makes me shudder!
|Another look at the parka...hmmmm...got me thinking....|
