Does anyone here use the patterns in this magazine.I'm very intrigued and interested in subscribing. I've heard the patterns are wonderful, I've also heard they are hard to follow.

Anyone?? Have pics of something you've made from it??

I have only one magazine 1/2008 and I have made a few things from it. Trousers here top here I have made a couple of other things that I haven't got pictures of. The sizing is good, the styles are as simple or as fussy as you want them to be and all can be used as basic patterns to adaptnfrom.

There is an ottobre Flickr group you can look at for inspiration. I'd just jump in and buy one magazine and see what you think. Pattern tracing is a bit of a steep learning curve but you you go over to sewingmamas.com you will find lots of Otto fans and info about tracing and sizing etc
