So far from the previews.... meh. I am actually more excited about some of the patterns I have seen in the upcoming August Burda than I am by most of these preview images. But, well, this is only a limited sampling, so I won't be too quick to dismiss this release as of yet. In any case, let's take a look at what Burda is putting together for this season:
|Fall dress... sort of meh for me. Not a fan of the sleeves and |
I know the skirt wouldn't be a flattering look for me.
|More peplums! Actually I sort of like this one?|
At least it doesn't look like it is put on backwards.
|Ruffly pencil skirt for the ruffle fans in the audience.|
|Meh. Wait. Does her shirt have shoulder pads?|
Tell me we are not returning to the horror of 80s fashion!
|Weird saggy crotch pants.|
|I like the hood. Not really loving the|
boxy shape of the rest of the coat though.
|Maternity wear. Hopefully they will have more patterns. |
Not a fan of this dress, but at least they have patterns for that phase of life.
|More retro Burda.|
Would it be too much to ask for some 50s patterns? Please?
|Cute jacket for the Burda Plus styles.|
|Actually this ball gown is sort of pretty.|
|The peplum is ok, but the neck ruffle is just a bit too much.|
|Hot! When I find out the pattern number for this baby it is so going on my wish list.|
|Is the same dress as above with a sequin shawl thing? |
Not sure, but I love the drape of the skirt.
|Spats pattern! I need this for my costume pattern collection.|
|More Burda costumes! Where was this pattern in March when I needed it...|
Sexy alien or crazy person. You decide.
(The sad thing is I might buy this to get the unitard pattern.
Yes, being a skating person means I am allowed to have crazy patterns.)
|Boring generic pattern.|
Yeah, I am going to get it for that jacket pattern.
Been doing too much sewing for guys to miss out on that.
