Ottobre Summer preview...can I have it now, please!

So the Ottobre summer preview is up!...and I am only disappointed that I have to wait another week for my issue!

So far, I am very eager to make...

everything on this spread! I really like the bubble shorts and the ruffle bottom t-shirt.

I could see Benjamin digging an outfit like this.

The contrast sleeves on that plaid shirt are a nice touch - must sew for my boys!

Everything the smaller girl is wearing is in Gracie's size range and oh-so-cute!

This dress is simple, but very sweet with the little tucks. I think I would do it with an applique near the hem.

In the meantime, I am working on an Ottobre Spring 2008 pattern to make an Alice in Wonderland themed top for our Disney trip. Here's a sneak peek:


  1. Great job smocking and embroidering your daughter's Easter dress. I love that you dress her like a little girl in this fast-paced, grow-up-too-soon world.

  2. Seems like a great issue..I've never sewn an Ottobre pattern, I may just have to look into this company..

    1. If you have boys, Ottobre has the best stuff hands down! They have great girl things, but the boy stuff is a rare find. My 11 year old saw the new issue and requested a pair of shorts!
