Amazing Ottobre Woman Index 2006-2015

If you are a long time Ottobre Woman subscriber, you probably know the feeling of going through all of your old issues to find just the right style to suit you at a particular moment  It can be a little confusing, flipping back and forth, comparing one thing to another.

Alice Hall from Abilene, TX  has come up with a solution!  She has taken the time to compile all of the Ottobre line drawings from 2006-2015 by specific garment type.  It's fantastic!  Now I can just thumb through this, instead of going through 10 years of magazines!  She's organized it by garment type, fabric type and even by sleeve type!  Alice has given me permission to share her work with you.  She would like for everyone who is interested to have access to the index so they can see how great Ottobre patterns are!  Here are a couple of pages from it for you to see, but there are many, many more!

Alice created it in Powerpoint because it is easy to move photos around. You can find the Powerpoint file here.  If you have Powerpoint, you can save a copy to your computer and make changes to reflect the issues that you own.  If you don't have Powerpoint, I've converted her original file to a PDF file, and you can download the PDF file here.

If you want to print it, just be sure to select Landscape mode as the pages are laid out horizontally. There are 34 pages.



Many thanks to Alice for the many hours that she spent compiling this information!  Alice doesn't have a blog herself, but if you'd like to leave her a comment here, I'll make sure she sees it!

Happy Sewing!

  1. Oh Alice, that is a treasure trove you've created! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! Can you tell how excited I am? I truly appreciate all the work you put forth to make this. I have all but one OW and all the OK issues except the first one, however I stopped subscribing in 2012 because my kids are getting so big and I would rather sew for myself. I miss OK and keep thinking I should resubscribe.

    Thank you Ann for sharing this gem!

  9. BY FABRIC TYPE! Alice, you rock! It's easy enough to print out the pdfs from the website so I don't have to look through each issue, but keeping track of knits versus woven is a bit harder. Thanks for doing the hard work, Alice. And thanks for sharing this, Ann!
