Is ottobre design the pattern of the fabric or the sewing pattern? If it is an actual sewing pattern is it available online? I love the vintage cut of the garment!! Cheers, Elaine

Thanks a lot, Elaine! Ottobre design is the name of a magazine that publish children and woman pattern designs about 6 times a year. I think they come in english too. They focus on versatile and quite practical designs, one issue is about 10USD. Couldnt find the right issue to show you right now, but they can be bought online at the very best regards, Anna

oh god, such nice words! Thank you sooo much!

I am so sorry, feel a bit guilty dragging you into it and not being able to help:-( Have been looking around the house for weeks. Can't seem to find the original pattern. Although I have my own. Would it be of any help if I took a photograph so you see how the finished pattern looks? Do you have the english version so the description is understandable?

05/10/2014 Flag

HI! Yes, I got the English version, thank goodness! I can only imagine how bad I would be lost if it were in another language! LOL! Oh that would for sure help to see a pic of what it looks like! Thanx SO very much!!!!

I have STILL not found the original pattern, very annoying. Took some pictures to show you my pattern parts, but might just have to post them together with the other project pictures. Dont know how else todo it. Best of luck anyhow!

Beautiful - your seams look perfect!

04/04/2014 Flag

Wow! Thank you! Choosing quite a steady knit also helped, I think. But finally it pays back for all those other sloppy project that I fought with. Knowing my machine and what fabric to use for all my special project. Very happy :-D
