I did Andrei's tee 1st and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this pattern. Tees could be so boring but this one has normal sleeves in the front and raglan in the back. I love the twist. I did a similar one for my husband last summer from the same issue of Ottobre. This is the small version for boys :

I started with this black stretch denim with gold print. It's quite a lovely fabric to work with and wear. And I copied paperback writer pants from Ottobre 6/2010 #31. There are pleny of 5 pockets jeans / pants to choose from my the description of this one won by by mentioning this is a particulary narrow one for skinny boys and that's my son lately. I'm looking at him now and I hardly can believe how round he used to be before he started to walk...
For his sister I made a pair of leggings from a single pattern piece. The fabric is stretchy enough for me to not bother with anything else and I made them a bit larger because I still was concerned with this being denim and not knit. They will probably still fit her in the fall.
I have enough fabric and stretch to make a pair of Eleonore for myself but I have been losing weight since my last one and I now need to trace a new size probably and that will probably make it delay forever or not... I could always hope for a moment of inspiration :).
The new fabric bundle arrived and most of them are nice knits that I will use soon for summer gear so with this 3 items I am now only 44 items in debt...

And I remembered a dress tunic design from one of my Ottobre magazine that I always thought it was cool and wanted to try it : Princess castle dress/tunic from 4/2013 #14:
The 1st version I made was pretty much as the pattern except the sleeve binding and slightly different color blocks.
