Not surprisingly, I see a number of things that I'd like to make for my daughter.

Are there previews for the grown-up version?

I took one look at that hot mess of jumbled pattern lines and stuck my magazine on a shelf.

I am not even sure I want to attempt to decipher that, when there are so many other patterns to choose from that aren't all printed on top of each other! And the seam allowances aren't even included?

Don't try tracing them. I use tracing paper and get great results. It does take a few minutes to train your eye to see the shape of the pattern, but it is well worth it. I get large sheets of tracing paper so I don't gave to move things around. And no seam allowances is no big deal - you just have to remember to add them.

I love that they included 2 size ranges for the overalls. DD had a pair of OshKosh overalls, but she's outgrown them. I like a couple of the dresses and the tie-shoulder romper, too.

I encourage you to give your Ottobre a shot. If you use tracing paper and a 5/8 or 1/4 seam tracer you can trace and add seam allowances in one step. Or tape 2 pencils together for 1/4" seam allowances and three pencils together for 5/8" allowances (the middle pencil is just a spacer so it doesn't need to be sharpened). Or use a double tracing wheel with transfer paper and a large piece of paper beneath the pattern sheet.
There are several pattern tracing threads here that can help too--the pinned Burda WOF general info and tips topic may be useful as Burda magazine is similar (more confusing even).
I don't see the same styles as Ottobre in other pattern lines: and not for the same price per pattern.

If you go to the Ottobre Design Website you will see pictures of magazine covers. These can be clicked for previews and the newest magazine is always last. The spring/summer woman's magazine will be second from the right. You can scroll back and look at all the magazines they ever published. You can still get many of the back issues.
