The reason why...

The best ideas seem to pop up just after the magazine has been sent to print. Or else we cannot fit all the lovely pictures and designs on the pages of the printed magazine. We set up this Ottobre design® blog as a forum for the informal ideas of the editorial staff. We will also publish modified versions and further pictures of the designs here. Readers can also have a say – feel free to post your comment!

The OTTOBRE woman spring/summer issue 2/2009 was mailed to subscribers at the beginning of this week, so you should receive your copy in the next few days. Here are a few pictures of the designs in the latest issue.

Wonderful! I am always wanting more pictures when I am sewing -- for ideas and when the instructions are confusing.

I'd love to see some of the out-takes from your photo shoots too. You know, the funny things the kids do sometimes. :-)

The pics in Ottobre are great at conveying the design in just a page or two but I'm always happy to see more and new ideas are always a treat. Thanks for providing this!

I am so glad you started a blog. I just got my first issue of Ottobre today (2/2009) and an older (2/2007) I got for being a first time subscriber. I am so excited to try out the pattern for both me and my daughters!
