I don't always like the patterns in the Burda Magazines so I don't tend to buy it every month. I have bought it this month but I won't say I was jumping up and down but I do like more than two patterns so the magazine qualified for a purchase.
Anyway here are a few I like.
Love seeing these type of dresses on those that can carry it off, they always look so dreamy and romantic. Not one for me though, I would look like a buxom milk maid.
I will definitely be trying this skirt because for some strange reason I love making skirts. According to the magazine the slit results from two overlapping front pieces which are caught in the side seams.
Boat Neck Dress
I really like this. Not sure whether this will suit my petite chubby frame, perhaps a smaller star. Anyway I want to make it as I just love the boat neck. If I hate it on me after doing a muslin, I will sack it, but the dress is so damn cool. No doubt some will say it looks a little 80's but hey that's my era.
This is one cute blouse. Fly front closing and a double gathered peplum to accentuate the waist. I'd call mine more of a girth than a waist but hey am going to be all over this one, since I have a wide belt that will keep the girth in check.
Embroidered Waist Coat
Speaking of tunics here it is again in a patterned fabric accented with satin piping. This pattern is in the plus size of the magazine.
Last but not least is this cape. It wouldn't suit my style but I think it is really nice. Made of silk duchesse and worn like a stole across the shoulders. This would look great on the right person.
Anyway they are my picks, so I have my money's worth since the magazine is only £4.75. There a few other patterns I like and will attempt but they will rank lower than the above.
Sidenote: I give up trying to make my images uniform in relation to the text some have wider spaces than the others and when I delete the spaces the image disappears or ends up somewhere else hehe.
Until Next Time
