Starting sewing with knits
In the sewing department I was not satisfied with my skills. I taught myself to work with a sewing machine but I did not feel that I understood how to modify patterns to make fitted clothes. I made a few dresses for my daughter from cotton almost a year ago but I wanted to learn more.
Ottobre and I love it. Although one magazine can deliver a whole wardrobe, my "collect them all" instinct kicked in immediately and I had to have all Ottobres ever made.
The fabric that I bought was from Lillestoff and they have such fun prints. Their fabric line consists of biological cotton knits and regularly new prints come out. When looking around on their website for the first time, I could not choose what to buy. I decided to simply buy a surprise box and hope for the best, I was not disappointed.
