Burda and OttobreWoman

Happy Labor Day!  I will spend it in my sewing room, cutting and sewing a pair of pants.  I have made one pair of black pants recently and made a sleeveless, black shell to wear under suit jackets.   Not exciting, but necessary.  Since I cleaned out my closets, I found "holes" that need to be plugged.

I do not subscribe to Burda or to OttobreWoman, but occasionally would like to have a copy of either.  They are available as single copies on the following websites:

Burda can be found at: http://www.fashionistafabrics.com/

Ottobre Woman is available from: http://www.sewbaby.com/shopbaby/index.php(click on New Products).  You can see the patterns in the magazine on the Ottobre website, here:http://www.ottobredesign.com/.  I like Ottobre because it features REAL women of all sizes and ages. 

Have a super holiday!

Have fun sewing today. I do not subscribe to those magazines either but pick them up sometimes. Thanks for the Sew Baby site for Ottobre.

Sheila said...

Happy holiday and sewing.

Thanks for the magazine sources! I can't believe that I can't find a Burda magazine anywhere in Atlanta!

Gwen thanks for the information.

Yes, thanks for that info. I know where to find Burda in person, but not Ottobre.

That 'hole plugging' thing is not exciting sewing, but I find that once you've done it, a whole range of possibilities suddenly emerge from inside the closet. I didn't have a simple black pencil skirt, so I whipped one up recently and it's changed my life. I haven't tried Ottobre yet, but I think I need to.

Thanks for the info Gwen! I am going online to look at them. What fun to find another source for patterns - though I need more like I need a hole in my head.

I started getting the children's Ottobre, but I'll be darned if I'm going to trace those patterns! I have gotten some good ideas though.

I made my first pajama shorts. I actually made two. I wear them to bed every night. I am so happy with them. I should probably make some pants soon as it the weather will start getting cold. Hope you'll come take a look. By the way, I am turning 10 this weekend.

Have fun making your pants.

I wish I had your Burda source last year...before I got into a bidding war on eBay and overpaid for one issue. Good to know about Ottobre too - thanks!
