More close-up shots OTTOBRE woman 5/2012


It’s easy to fall in love with this linen tunic dress! It is versatile and it flatters your figure. It can be paired with jeans or leggings. Make it a few centimeters longer and wear it with a thick pantyhose and flat shoes. Made from wool fabric, it would be perfectly suitable for special occasions, while printed cotton fabric would give it a retro look and plaid fabric would turn it into a rustic-style dress.

The neckline and the waist seam are detailed with beautiful topstitching sewn by hand with embroidery floss. The the sleeve edges are trimmed with pleated strips.
Design # 1. Stitch Details tunic/dress
100% linen (Soft linen or Light-weight linen in our Etsy-shop)

The simple wrap-around jacket with extra long, narrow sleeves is sewn from rib knit. The jacket is cut in two pieces that are joined at the center-back. The top and bottom edges are finished with hems, and the sleeves are stitched in place last. The jacket can be worn in various ways: you can wrap it over your shoulders like a scarf or around your waist to the back.


Design # 2. Warmly Wrapped cardi
Brighten up the grey autumn days with a generous dash of color! The skirt is sewn from velveteen and lined with viscose lining fabric. It has front-hip pockets and a zipper in the center-back seam.


Design # 12. Axtec velveteen skirt
Gorgeour velveteen is from Anna Maria Horner's collection

Wool is a truly versatile material. This yellow coat is sewn from lightweight boiled wool, which is easy to cut and sew. Since boiled wool doesn’t fray, no seam finish is necessary. The front panels of the coat are generously overlapped and secured with a large kilt pin. Zippered pockets are inserted in the panel seams on the front.
Design # 18. Perfect Autumn Coat
Material: 100% wool (Boiled wool from our Etsy shop)

Where do I find these patterns?
I really want to make the yellow jacket, but I can't seem to find it. Do I need to order it online somewhere?
