Dada la situación excepcional que vivimos, la mayor parte del equipo editorial de la revista OTTOBRE está teletrabajando. Ya estamos acostumbrados a hacerlo porque muchos de nuestros trabajadores se encuentran en distintos países europeos durante todo el año. Como cliente, puede contar con que todo funcionará como de siempre por nuestra parte.
Nuestra tienda web también funciona con normalidad. Todos los pedidos de revistas se siguen enviando desde Turku, Finlandia, el primer día laborable después de que se registre el pedido. Los pedidos de 1-3 revistas continúan enviándose como carta por correo ordinario. Se pueden producir retrasos ajenos a nuestro control dependiendo de cómo funcionen los servicios postales de los países de tránsito y destino. Por lo tanto, rogamos mantener la paciencia y seguir las comunicaciones del servicio postal de cada país.
Todos los pedidos de 4 o más revistas con destino en Europa continental se enviarán con servicios de paquetería de momento. Estos envíos contarán con un código de seguimiento que se enviará a la dirección de correo electrónico que el cliente indique en el pedido.
Como somos una pequeña editorial independiente, agradecemos el apoyo de nuestros clientes para salvaguardar el futuro de la empresa. Ojalá todos nos protejamos y nos mantengamos sanos mientras dure esta situación excepcional.
This vintage-inspired sundress owes its nostalgic look to the combination of floral cotton fabric with two different gingham-check fabrics. The center bodice panels on the front and back are gathered with elasticized shirring, making the dress easy to put on and take off. The skirt is gathered to the bodice with the usual gathering method. See the tutorial in the OTTOBRE LAB section of our website! The front of the dress is embellished with small gingham-check bows.
This airy summer dress is made from lightweight cotton poplin with a herb-gatherer print. The full skirt is gathered to a beautifully curved waistline, and the panel seams on the bodice front are accented with narrow frills. The cropped sleeves are gathered both along the sleeve caps and the cuff seams. The sleeve cuffs close with narrow ties. The dress has a button placket on the back.
This sleeveless shirt is sewn from mélange cotton single jersey and its neckline and armholes are finished with ribbed binding. The Bermudas, made from herringbone linen union, have front-hip pockets as well as leg pockets with flaps. The back portion of the waistband is elasticated. The back of the Bermudas is detailed with buttoned tabs that are inserted into the darts.
The beautifully shaped shirt is sewn from light linen fabric with a stand-up collar. It is further detailed with a pleat on the back and with shoulder panels that extend down the sleeves. Both the shirt and the Bermudas have coconut buttons.
This blueberry-patterned polo shirt is accented with a solid-color collar, placket bands and sleeve bands. The material of the shirt is soft, organic-cotton single jersey.

A wrap dress is a great piece for any wardrobe! This beautiful dress was created using the Verona pattern from our Spring-Summer 2/2023 issue (design 16). Originally sewn in lightweight silk satin, this lovely wrap dress can be made from various woven fabrics and is easy to modify. You could shorten or lengthen the sleeves and hem, or add some pretty details, such as the romantic frills we’ve included in this new version.
The material of this dress is an embroidered cotton voile which makes the dress light and summery. We shortened the sleeves and stitched two rows of elastized shirring to gather the width of the sleeves. We also added narrow frills along the hemline and neckline. To calculate the length required for each frill, measure the corresponding seams on the pattern pieces and multiply the measurement with 1.5. The visible width of the frills is 1.5-2 cm, and remember to add 1 cm seam allowances. Finish the outer edges of both frills and sleeves with a serger rolled hem or with narrow, short zigzag stitch.
