Sneak Peek OTTOBRE design® Spring/Summer 2/2010 Woman fashion

OTTOBRE design® woman fashion Spring/Summer issue 2/2010 will be published on February 19, 2010.
This issue includes twenty designs for women in sizes 34-52.

The themes are:

A journey into the movie world with brand-new stars!

Our youthful collection includes a special-occasion dress, a shirt “borrowed from a boyfriend” and a quick-to-sew skirt. A long silk dress with thin shoulder straps, a chiffon top and Bermuda shorts are perfect for hot summer weather. A gorgeous silk top, skirt and coat make an elegant special-occasion outfit for mature women. Sizes 34-46, 34-48 and 34-52

Harmonious outfits for daily wear are based on a successful choice of styles and materials. Our fresh, casual summer wear combines natural fibers and straightforward designs.

Create a graphic look by layering plain items: our linen tunic and our tunic, dress and skirt sewn from jersey can be combined in a number of ways. Light, airy tunics and stylish Bermuda shorts can be made in various styles and colors. A linen capri & top set feels cool on a hot day. Nostalgic ginghams look great both on Mom and daughter. Sizes 34-48 and 34-52

We wish you nice sewing sessions with us!
