So since so many of us are new to ottobre or this style of pattern magazine we thought it would be good to put as much info as we could think of in a post.
The lovely Adrienne supplied us with the photos and experience 🙂
Each issue contains a number of patterns geared towards the season it’s releasing for.
Each pattern has a tracing guide
There is a sizing guide in each issue
The sizes are European to a handy conversion chart is a good idea
To find your pieces you find the number of the correct color on the bottom and go up until you find the pattern piece with the matching number
The are plenty of how to’s for tracing patterns and using these great patterns. Here are a couple you might like 🙂
