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.
The baby's summer clothes must be comfortable, practical and also breathable, because babies too are affected by heat. This cute playsuit with a seat panel on its back is made from soft linen fabric. Linen helps to keep the baby cool and it also absorbs moisture from the skin. The little cap is sewn from the same fabric as the playsuit. Thanks to the elastic casing along its lower edge it sits well on the head!
This playsuit with collar is made from printed cotton single jersey. The size of the superhero print motif is just right for a small garment like this! The collar and the placket piece are cut from solid-color single jerseys in colors that match the printed jersey. The bottom edges of the sleeves and legs and the edges of the snap crotch are finished with ribbed binding.
The design of this playsuit is based on the idea of a shirt and panty all-in-one! The bodice has a hem that overlaps the panty section and covers the waist seam. The neckline and the bottom edges of the sleeves and legs are finished with ribbed binding. Soft jersey clothes are stretchy and breathable and thus ideal for the baby's daily wear.
This modern, simple shirt is sewn from printed organic-cotton poplin with a delicious print pattern and it closes with wooden buttons. The shirt has a shoulder yoke and side vents at the hem. The Bermudas are sewn from coarse cotton/linen blend fabric with creases on the legs. They have slanted hip pockets on the front and mock welt pockets on the back.

This delicate, yet modern voile dress is a versatile, airy summer item. It can be slipped over a swimsuit and paired with sneakers for swimming trips as it dries fast in the summer breeze. With a different hairstyle and accessories it transforms into a lovely special-occasion dress. If you wish you can replace the little puffed sleeves with more generous, below-the-elbow-length puffed sleeves, which are featured on the denim version of this dress in the same magazine!
This adorable organic-cotton poplin dress, accessorized with a brim hat from the same fabric, is perfect both for daily wear and for special occasions. The front of the dress is adorned with a pleated ruffle, and the bottom edges of the sleeves are also pleated. There is an invisible zipper on the back. The hat has grommets on its crown to allow air circulation even on the hottest days.
This short-sleeve shirt, sewn from slightly crinkled cotton fabric, is breathable and pleasant to wear. The flap pockets and the small collar together with the straightforward cut give this shirt a truly classic look!
The boy's coordinating jacket and pants are sewn from linen fabric. The pants are cropped and the back portion of their waistband is elasticated. The patch pockets and the two-piece sleeves of the laid-back jacket are quick to construct. You can make a more formal outfit from, for example, cotton gabardine.
