I finally ordered myself a subscription to Ottobre.
These are actually just two issues, they have double covers! I was hesitant for a long time because of the cost. 48 Euros/ $75.00! This gets me two women's issues and 4 kids issues. I was afraid to spend the money on patterns I wouldn't use. Well, that has been put to rest! I want to make (almost) everything in these issues! See the third from the top? I could never make that. I think my mom had a shirt just like it when she was my age. Not cool. I don't think I could pull it off! I love the dress - 2nd from the top. There is even a swimsuit pattern I might try for myself!
Speaking of my mom's style - check out what I pulled out of her old pattern stash.
