Vintage Ottobre Design magazine Sewing! Issue 4/2001 Winter

I adore all Ottobre Design magazines- but I have a particular soft spot for their early Vintage issues.  I also have every issue of Topkids mag- too, but I am sure that will not surprise you. With a holiday break this week, I have been tracing madly from issue 4/2001.( currently in stock).







Imagine this in Hilco "Hairy Day"?  Perfect!
 
 

So my first project off the rank, pattern # 35. Leggins ( and they do spell it without the "g". No wonder I do, too! I have been asked this many times...it is obviously all the Non English patterns I read!!)




Fabric = cotton/poly velour knit from the Shop, in Imperial Purple hand dyed.
Trim= Janeas World ribbon in "m-Room" Lilac
Purple pom pom braid  and the icing on the cake? A super cute Janeas World sew on badge.


 Pattern #35 is not the normal tight fitting leggin, it is a flare legged number- with the fabric suggested as velour knit. Otto 4/2001 features 3 patterns for plus size kids- and this pattern in included. Onto the others now!
