This was the first time that I sewed something from Ottobre Design. There are mainly two reasons for this. On the one hand, I can't easily find them here in the US, at least at a reasonable price, hence I only have two issues. On the other hand, most of the patterns that can be found in the magazine are designed for knits and I don't usually sew with knits, I guess I am more of a woven person.
That said, I am very very happy with the pattern that I chose.
I opted for a knit dress from Issue No. 4/2015. The dress has a very simple design, but the front pin tuck and the side pockets make it really special.
I used a grey knit for the dress and quilted knit with hearts for the pockets. Both fabrics are from Joann's.
After finishing the dress, the collar seemed way too simple, so I decided to make a reversible collar, using the quilting knit on one side and some liberty tana lawn cotton on the other side.
I don't usually use knits, so I was a bit worried with the outcome, but after Teresa tried it, I was totally convinced.
I think the dress is comfortable, but chic! I also absolutely love the pockets.
I can't resist to share with you a cute photo from "behind the scenes". She was so excited with the photo shoot! She really loved her new dress!
