Though, actually, looking through these pictures it seems like it is going to be a rather bleak and depressing holiday season...
|Most depressing holiday colors ever...|
It seems like black and white is a theme for this issue...
|It took my brain several tries to decompress what she was wearing.|
You can wear a big shirt or a long skirt or a blanket or that hat or those boots.
But not all at the same time. Pick ONE.
|Wait - is this a vest with the sleeves built in?|
I have to admit I am a little horrified.
I think that is the Tim Gunn influence right there.
I suppose I can't be too snarky about the pastel colors - apparently it is totally a thing right now. Today I walked by a street fair type thing on my way to the library and all the clothing vendors were stuffed with pale frilly pastel things. Part of me ponders if this is an overreaction to the bold neon colors that were "in" at the beginning of this year, and part of me doesn't really care. I don't look good in neons or in pastels, so it won't really affect my sewing plans at all. Of course, it could mean some very boring Burda pictures for the next few months. *Sigh* (Also: random tangent - the library has moving bookshelves now, I so totally though I was going to get smooshed while hopelessly looking for things on the top shelf that I couldn't see because the aisles are so narrow now it is physically impossible to crane one's head at an appropriate angle so as to be able to read the spines. Luckily I escaped. With books. We should all rejoice.)
On the positive side, I thought this dress was fabulous:
Knowing my luck it will be a petit size.
|I sort of like this, but I want to see the line drawing.|
I am *thinking* it might be the vintage pattern for the month.
I have to admit, I am (once again) totally jealous of the Burda Plus patterns:
|Can you say VaVaVoom? I needs me some of that.|
|This is normally not my style, and yet I think she looks fabulous.|
|Could it be? Yes, I think it is - it's color! Mine eyes are blinded!|
|Heck, I am even jealous of the kid patterns this time around.|
