|This is a video about tracing Ottobre Patterns, especially for those new to them. The materials that I use are medical paper ( My dad is a retired doctor, so I got his supply a couple of years ago.) I think Londa's Creative Threads carries it. I also use the SA Curve ruler and a standard 2" X 18" straight ruler. Other good methods for tracing the seam allowances are compasses, double tracing wheels, Olfa rulers with the arm attachment and Hollie's Seam Allowance Guide. I buy my rotary cutter blades (generic) from J. Hittle wholesale sewing supply because they are roughly $1. a piece. They do not last as long as Olfa but they are cheap.
I really like the drafting and the cute styles of Ottobre. The models are typical looking women, which can be good or bad. There is a reason 90 or more percent of apparel retailers use tall, thin leggy models. Don't let it turn you off.
