As for the Burda announcement, well, I wasn't too excited by the assortment of large, shapeless sacks I saw in many of the photos:
|Sack dress strikes again!|
|Those shorts are not attractive.|
Now, as for the Butterick patterns - I am just going to say it up front - this is a great release from Butterick. There are a lot of really awesome things I know I am going to buy. Here are my favorites:
|B5783 - A twist top/belt dress.|
|B5794 - Love the top and the flutter sleeves!|
|B5797 - I have a thing for corset patterns, don't ask me why.|
|*Gasp* *Swoon* - B5779 Wedding Gown|
|B5779 Gown Front|
|I cannot condone anything related to this series.|
Other patterns I am going to buy but don't need at all:
|B5795 - Bathing suit only comes in sizes 18W and up.|
But, now that I am sewing skating costumes for others it might be
good to have a leotard pattern in larger sizes as well as the small ones I have now.
|B5796 - Maternity clothes.|
|I really really don't need a maternity pattern at all.|
But they are so freaking rare and these are actually cute designs I feel I must get it.
You know, just in cases.
|B5780 - Interesting seamlines, but since Butterick made it in black, |
it is hard to tell how they actually look on a real person.
|B5784 - I like it, but not enough to buy it.|
|B5769 - A See & Sew pattern. Actually the dress and jacket are pretty cute.|
|B5788 - Really skinny jeans if you have the legs for it. I do not have the legs for it.|
Might also be a good pattern for running/exercise pants
|B5771 - I have enough patterns for pants like this from Burda, |
but for some reason I think these are sort of cute.
