I love, love, LOVE the colour-block, curved raglan from Ottobre!! The only thing is that it's runs a bit short IMO but I'm cutting out more charity shop t-shirts to make one for my DS2.

Some of my previous creations for him have been refused - not even tried on in fact :cry: Just FTR it's not that he objects to homemade clothes, it's just that he's very picky about what he wears :roll:

Thanks for the comments

The pattern is from the 02/2005 Ottobre magazine which I ordered from https://www.ottobredesign.com/subscription/single.php?PHPSESSID=315e11329b96e52b2937e033d23a2b71
The magazine costs about £10 incl postage and contains 40 patterns + instructions in loads of sizes.

I really, REALLY recommend Ottobre patterns. They are a joy to sew and the instructions albeit sparse teach you very good techniques which I haven't come across before. The patterns aren't on horrible tissue paper (can't stand the stuff) but on thick paper so do need tracing off but it's not as scary as I thought it would be. I've never been able to sew from tissue paper patterns but I can do Ottobre ones easily.
