Firstly, so many draped knit dresses! And I am in love with all of them. Well, most of them. Although my number one pick is actually a top and a skirt:
|V1259 - Swoon!|
Actually, the second one - V1257 - I am envisioning cutting down on the length, using 3/4 length sleeves, and making more of a tunic top. But, well, we shall see. I have to actually acquire said pattern first. Also, I am in love with the neckline on the third pattern. It is, perhaps, a bit mature for me, but maybe I will just get the pattern so I can use it in 5-10 years?
In terms of more practical clothing, I am also madly in love with this shirt pattern:
And another shirt pattern, with raglan sleeves:
Now for the patterns I am debating:
|V1051 - Alice + Olivia pattern|
|V8751 - Live!|
(BTW, if you are wondering about the V1051 that I am making - I have made them before. I left off the welt pockets before, and I am leaving them off again. Not because I am afraid of the welts, but because there is a dress code for an upcoming event and I need pants like yesterday. And, although I probably have more than 10 Burda pants patterns calling to me right now that I am dying to make, I don't have time to test the fit and make up a good set, so I am just pumping out 2 pairs of the V1051. I will post pictures when they are finished. Anyway, back to patterns...)
I am also on the fence about this pattern:
This also caught my eye:
Finally, I debate over this pattern for my sister:
Finally, I want to point out that while I don't really want this pattern, I think Vogue did an excellent job of picking a fabric for it:
Overall, this is a great bunch of patterns. There is only one real head scratcher:
|V8752 - Line drawing. Ummm, what?|
But, overall, a good set of patterns. There are some other jackets and dresses and things, but I think I am already smitten with enough new patterns...
Now to wait for the August Burda preview!
