Sneak peek to summer issue 3/2013

Summer is coming soon!... and so is our freshly-baked OTTOBRE design summer issue 3/2013

This issue is released in Finland on April 22, 2013 and we start shipping the English, Dutch, Swedish, German and Finnish editions to subscribers early next week, so in Europe it should arrive April, 22.-27. and oversea countries 10-14 days later.  

Please notice! The release date for Russian and French edition is early May!

Fresh ideas, quick to make and fun to look at!

We wanted to make summer issue as easy as possible for you and put the entire summer wardrobe between the same covers. We wanted it to be a dream come true for home sewers: all you need to do is draw a few lines, stitch a few seams, et voilà! We decided to create lots of nice basic yet modifiable designs that are easy to make. They include several items requested by our readers and a whole bunch of fresh designs to be sewn from jersey. We were thrilled by the wonderful print patterns of the fabrics of this summer season and also dipped into our stash for bigger pieces of left-over fabric that could be recycled.

We included lots of stripes – from classic straight stripes to freehand-painted brush stripes. We allowed the stripes to go wild in our collection, as you probably notice on the jazzy front cover of the magazine. We threw in lots of color for both boys and girls. We ended up with so many ideas that we had to leave some of them out to be published later in our blog.

So discover our delightful summer issue sneak peeks and already enjoy the coming summer!

I am at a loss as to where to find contact information so that I can change my address with your company, and make sure I continue to receive your magazine at my new home.

Really like the Levi style boy's jacket. I'm sorry to say, I am really disappointed with the girl's dresses. They are just too plain. There are plenty of "simple" designs that look modern and fresh, but these just look uninspired. Hoping for a big improvement on my next subscribed issue.

I made my daughter the Flower Hexagon dress today and she loves it. I'll likely be making it again. http://quitereasonable.blogspot.com/2013/05/ottobre-03-2013-16.html

Is it possible that there is a mistake in the urban tricot pants for the bigger sizes modell 37.
The 2 is a lot bigger than the 2A?
