Stop folding the envelope!

My Ottobre Design magazine arrived today!  Hooray!  I just wish the postal service would be kinder to that white envelope.  Mine was ripped in a few places on the edge.  Then the postie folded it and shoved it in the mailbox.  Thankfully my magazine is intact and in good order if a bit bended.  
When I looked at this issue online, I wasn't taken by much.  There aren't many designs that will fit Miss Moo, but after seeing it in person there are quite a few things that would be great for Will.  I love Ottobre's selection of patterns for boys.  If you have a boy, you can not go past Otto for awesome designs for boys.

I'd really like to make this jacket for Will.  
 At first I wasn't sure if I would make it, but after I saw the fabric recommendation (sweater knit aka French terry) and how some of the details were constructed, I really want to do it, but I think I'll wait until we are heading towards cooler weather.

My postie did the same!
I wasn't that taken by any of th girl patterns either this time - but I loved that jacket for boys too and was going to point it out to my friend.

Mine was folded too, with envelope ripped...Gggrrrrr!!
That jacket was pretty cool. The more I look at it, the more I like this issue too. The Julia tunic is my favorite, and I am keen to try out the undies and nappies.

I thought the same as I saw it online, but must have overseen this jacket. That is cool, also for girls IMHO.

I was very meh about it online but the slim-fit trousers are awesome and just what I needed for both my skinnimalees. I've already done a pair of bootlegs for Laura and they are tremendous - a really lovely cut and I only needed a belt to cinch them in a little. No more buttonhole elastic! Yay!!! (I really like the jacket, too, it's so Sergeant Pepper! I'm not sure how DH will feel about it but I think it'd be a lovely CHristmas present for James.)

I wasn't all that taken with it until I saw the boy patterns. The girl patterns are really disappointing this time but the boy's make up for it.

Must have a better look at that jacket now as I have way too much French terry hanging around here ;)
