Mail Express and Movimiento? I wonder when Ottobre Magazine will run out of names for its patterns, hehe.
Molly's wearing the Mail Express tunic (Ottobre 1-2012-17), which I lengthened into a dress. She styled it with some old Ottobre leggings.
I think this blue floral fabric may be my favorite Chez Ami knit.
The envelope neck is stitched shut at the shoulders after the fact, so it's really more of a faux-envelope. My binding wants to flip up on the outside edge, though.
Both the back and front skirts are gathered to the yokes. And the patch pockets are bound.
And next up, in another (older) Chez Ami knit is the Movimiento tunic (Ottobre 3-2013-34). I'm trying to convince Sara she likes this, but she's not going for the tunic idea. Younger sister loves it, so maybe she'll get it in pristine condition next summer.
It's supposed to have a drawstring at the waist (with strips of knit fabric applied inside to form a casing) but I just stitched elastic to the inside. I placed the elastic according to the pattern but, in retrospect, I think it'd look nicer a little higher.
Also shown are the Chica Ciclista Leggings (Ottobre 3-2013-33), which comes in a couple of different lengths.
