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 straightforward jersey dress is an effortless option for busy days! It's made from #Oekotex certified cotton jacquard knit with a touch of elastane. Jacquard knit is a firm knit that retains its shape after washing and doesn't require ironing. The dress has a bodice and a curved underbust seam, which gives shape to the dress, and the neckline is finished with a narrow single-jersey facing.
While this casual button-up skirt is sewn from slightly stretchy corduroy, the pattern is also suitable for denim or twill! The skirt has patch pockets both on the front and back. The skirt is likely to become one of your everyday staples, especially when paired with a turtleneck. The ochre turtleneck is made from modal/cotton blend rib knit. Its shoulder and armhole seams are first stitched as plain seams and then coverstitched from the right side. However, if you wish, you can simply stitch these seams with a serger instead. You can order our OTTOBRE design® woman 5/2021 issue postage-free until 9 November 2021!
As promised, we made a winter version of the trenchcoat featured in our OTTOBRE design® woman 5/2021 issue! This coat with its elegant herringbone pattern is made from virgin wool twill, woven from undyed yarns in natural shades wool. The coat has a light viscose blend lining. There is a slit at the back hem, and the practical pockets are inserted into the side seams of the coat. Which version are you going to sew this autumn?
This graceful calf-length viscose crepe skirt is perfect for both daily wear and special occasions. Crepe is an easy material that is breathable and feels pleasant against the skin. The skirt has a slight A-line cut, which looks flattering on most figures, provided the fabric is fairly lightweight with a good drape. Besides a jersey turtleneck, the skirt pairs well with a collared shirt or an oversized sweater!
This unlined trenchcoat is ideal for the variable autumn weather. It's sewn from tightly-woven cotton/polyester blend outerwear fabric that is windproof and withstands light showers. The coat is a stripped-down version of the classic trenchcoat and it has a light, feminine look. The only classic details remaining are the double-breasted button closure, wide lapels and tie belt. The shoulders are generously dropped, the sleeves are cropped and the hemline lies above the knees.
Black is always an elegant choice that suits any occasion! Combine your own favorite color with these timeless, feminine classics, and you'll have one complete outfit ready for the autumn. The turtleneck is sewn from innovative soy-protein/modal blend single jersey, which is soft and silky and thus suitable also for allergic skin. The wide-leg, high-waist pants are made from Tencel™ viscose twill with an excellent drape. Tencel™ fibers are derived from fast-growing eucalyptus that is harvested from sustainably-managed FSC® certified forests.
