I got the new Ottobre a few weeks ago and it's a good one. I like Ottobre (to look at, at least as so far I haven't made anything!). It has simple designs and look like they are for real shapes (meaning like my short, pear, shape!)
Anyway, the top I mentioned a couple of posts ago is cut out but still not finished as I have had a busy week with uni, friend from Tahiti visiting and another beautiful birthday dinner out! I've put a few photos of the cutting guide which isn't too bad and my m.o. is to use a highlighter to outline the shape I want to trace so that I can actually see it.

|Pattern sheet with highlighted pattern pieces|

|Nice simple dress|
More interestingly when I had bought some patterns and pattern books (to show another post) I saw this ad below, in one of them. Sorry but the photo has been adjusted in my iphotos but it will not keep it right way up on blogger! What's that about? Anyway I'ts like a pants pattern block that slides and pivots to make the "perfectly fitting pant in just 5 easy steps or your money back". Anyone ever heard of this bonfit pattern block?
With some instant research Bonfit Pattern Co exists still but this is a Canadian one - are they one and the same? I will have to do a little more in-depth research (that is more than 30 seconds!) Have a great Easter - hopefully with family and friends and be safe.
