Something for me!

I don’t sew much for me. In fact I’ve only made one thing and I’ve never worn it.
I felt I had to be brave and try again. I really like this pattern and fortunately it’s in one of the few Ottobre magazines that I own.
The fabric I picked up in the local Op Shop so figured I couldn’t go wrong. It’s a heavy synthetic polyester mix by the feel of it with lovely drape. Not my usual type of fabric, I’m more of a natural fibres girl.
I went with my high bust measurement to choose size which is something I read somewhere about Ottobre patterns and I’m really happy with the fit.

My son was the photographer so……


Pattern: Ottobre 02/08 #1 Pintuck tunc
Fabric: Op Shop at $2!

  1. Take a look at the farbenmix homepage and search for joana and shelly two Shirt pattern or amy a skirt really easy to make and so well explained
    I love them and on the 19.th there will be a new one online .

        • yes its today and i will go and see the fabric shop this moring and see if i can find something for it….are there any fabricshops in Whangarei where i can shop when we get there?

          • Yes, but not of the quality you are probably used to. There is a chain called Spotlight, a discount fabric shop called Fabric barn and a low quality place called Arthurs Emporium – although they have a good range of ribbons and buttons. I buy quite a few fabrics online. I often use here,hereand here. I’ve started following your blog so hopefully will see your new top soon!

  2. well i havenĀ“t found the right fabric for it yet but i will go up north to my parents next weekend ,when thomas flys to NZ, and there is a great shop called limetrees sure i will find something there……do you know” make it perfect” ?she does quite nice patterns too i have ordered some

    • Good luck at Limetrees.
      Make It Perfect is an Australian brand. I like quite a few of her patterns but don’t own any. It’s odd that I’m in NZ making German patterns and you are in Germany making Australian patterns.
