Due to the current exceptional circumstances, the majority of the editorial team of the OTTOBRE magazine are now working from their homes. We have good experience in telecommuting because during the whole period of our operation, a large number of our staff have been based in various European countries. As a customer, you can expect that matters will continue to be dealt with as usual.
Our webshop also continues to operate normally. Like before, all orders for magazine issues will be dispatched from Turku, Finland, on the first business day following the order. Orders for 1–3 issues will continue to be sent by letter mail. Delays in deliveries that are not due to us may occur with the local postal services, depending on the country of destination. Therefore we hope that you remain patient and kindly ask you to follow information about the postal services in your country.
All orders for four or more magazine issues destined for continental Europe will for the time being be sent by parcel post. A tracking code will be sent to the email address that you provided in your order, so that you can track the progress of your parcel online.
As a small independent publisher, we want to thank you for helping us to ensure the future operation of our company. We hope that you all will stay healthy and safe during these exceptional times.
This polka-dot denim jumpsuit is a perfect outfit for a toddler. It's easy to put on and take off because the zipper on the front opens almost all the way to the crotch. The fullness is controlled with elastic around the waistline and neckline as well as with elasticated bottom edges of the sleeves and legs, making the jumpsuit comfortable to move around in.
This sweet A-line jersey dress has a stand-up collar and an invisible zipper on the back. There are small patch pockets on the front, and the sleeves are gathered to the cuffs. The dress is worn over cotton jersey leggings that are adorned with frills.
This bright sun-yellow set is sewn from cotton sweatshirt knit with a soft, brushed reverse side. The sweatpants are detailed with knee panels that are also practical as they can be replaced if the knee areas become too worn. The hoodie features a zipper that is inserted into the diagonal seam joining the center and right upper-front panels. Therefore the front neckline corners of the hood overlap generously. The hood gives good protection thanks to its partially elasticated face-edge hem.
This green jacket is made with the same design as its orange version. The topstitching on both the jacket and the jeans is sewn with matching topstitching thread. In order to achieve perfect lines of topstitching, remember to keep an eye on the presser foot as you stitch, making sure that it stays aligned with the garment's seamline or edge.
The jeans are straight-cut with slightly tapering legs. The waist sits at the natural waistline and the back yoke adds to the comfortable fit. You can order our OTTOBRE design® kids 1/2022 postage-free until 8 March!
A classic jacket and jeans outfit is always trendy and inspiring! While this version is made from firm cotton twill, other equally suitable materials include denim, canvas or corduroy.
We revamped the classic jean jacket design by removing the vertical panel seams and by replacing the flapped chest pockets with patch pockets that are placed further down on the front. Familiar classic features left intact include the collar, the hem band and the cuffed two-piece sleeves with plackets in the back seams. Instead of jeans buttons that are hammered in place the jacket closes with sew-on metal buttons.
While waiting for spring to come into full bloom, we can take delight in using fabulous floral fabrics for sewing projects. This two-piece set is made from lightweight cotton/modal blend sweatshirt knit. The short zipper-front hoodie is a snug fit.
The wide legs of the sweatpants are gathered to ribbed cuffs in the same way as the sleeves of the hoodie. The pants have front-hip pockets and an elasticated waist casing. The sweet sleeveless top with a turtleneck collar is sewn from organic-cotton rib knit.
The basic pattern of this hoodie is the same as that of the sweatshirt with a heart motif, featured in one of our previous posts. It has plenty of growing room thanks to the long hemline and the turn-up ribbed cuffs. The laid-back design does not necessarily require any further details; however, we pepped it up with appliquéd letter X, cut from white single jersey.
This black-and-white rib knit dress is a super-easy versatile design that suits various occasions! It has a turtleneck collar, and the armholes are finished with self-fabric bindings. You can combine the dress with our classic jean jacket!
