Ottobre Family issue

I've gotten some more info on the highly anticipated Family issue coming out late next week....Here is what Ottobre has to say about it...... "We added size 32 for slim, tall girls to the women’s size chart and size 46 for teenage boys to the men’s size chart. There also seems to be a high demand for a collection for plus-size women. We have designed a much-requested pattern for a unisex kimono-sleeve bathrobe in a wide range of sizes for both teenagers and adults." And here are a couple more photos of what you'll find in this issue... It will be available on our website late next week.
