Ottobre are awesome for kids clothes. They are pricey but there are tons of patterns in them. I love that magazine.

Um. Ottobre hands down for trendy euro patterns and sew beautiful for classic styles

Ok, I'm going to have to have ottobre, I can tell already. I'm drawn to the vogue patterns like a moth to flame. :giggle: More please!

Just a word. Ottobre isn't for the beginner or the faint of heart. The patterns are printed on large pieces of paper one over the other in different colours and you have to trace them, you may have 5 or more patterns each in 5 sizes all printed on one sheet. I can take a pic if you can't quite picture it. There is no seam allowance and the instructions are in Finnish if there even are any. That said. Once you fumble your way through a pattern once it gets easier. I always use a lot of swear words the first time I sew almost any ottobre pattern. Lol

Lol.. compare it to burda. That would give me an idea whether I could pull it off or not. :giggle2:

in comparison to burda....your good!

I like ottobre (wish i had a sub....but instead buy occasional back issue) both children's & women's. I sub to Sew Beautiful....and if you smock, Austrialian Smocking & Embroidery is TDF.

I think a little trickier than birds only because if the language and the findig and tracing of the pattern. In terms of difficulty of assembly about equal

I would say it is more like farbenmix but ten patterns drawn one on top of the other in different colours.

It is hard to explain. I have been sewin it 20 years. I am a professional seamstress and Ottobre patterns stress me out every time. I LOVE the finished product though. They have the best and cutest clothing.
