First, I will admit there is some good stuff in this issue:
|Love this dress! I really like the color blocking on the sleeves.|
|Looks like there are some nice details in the line drawing.|
|I also find myself liking this dress.|
Though I might just be in awe of the lovely fabric.
|The line drawing is not as impressive as the dress...|
|...and as a top I feel like it looks sloppy.|
Hmmm... this might be a pattern that requires a print to look good.
|I really love this coat!|
Though I am not such a fan of the fabric combo that Burda used.
|The line drawing is fantastic though.|
Wouldn't this be a perfect raincoat?
|I liked this jacket from the preview...|
|But I like it even more now that I have seen the line drawing!|
Sadly, it is for petites, which means extra work for me.
|Another coat pattern.|
I think I would like it better shorter.
|The top is the same as the short jacket.|
This is also for petites.
|I LOVE this skirt! The drape looks so elegant.|
|The proportions look great on the model.|
|These are the crazy patch jeans Burda made...|
|... but maybe these look a bit less crazy in a nice solid?|
|I am a fan of the line drawing - these are going on my list.|
|Another good pants pattern.|
|I like that both of these pants patterns have nice basic pockets |
and variations on the leg style.
|I could see this cape being a good rain poncho.|
|Though, honestly, I really just want to use it to make Star Wars costumes.|
|This jacket might not be my personal taste, |
but I can see it being a good style for outdoor activities.
|This skirt is sort of boring, but fine.|
|I sort of like this swirly hippie-ish print blocked skirt.|
Maybe with a different fabric combo?
|This soft jacket is so pretty!|
|Simple, elegant, classy.|
|This peplum style top is another good style.|
|Burda did it in two color variations - |
it looks so chic in black and white.
|Another basic with interesting details.|
|The garment photo of this top isn't so inspiring...|
|But it looks so comfy on the model!|
And her pants (also a pattern) look great too.
|Downton Abbey reject dress.|
Sad, because the lace is actually kind of pretty.
|Sack dress in Pepto Bismal pink.|
|Burda informs me this is a dress.|
It looks more like a nightshirt one would use
to sneak into the kitchen for a midnight snack.
|Speaking of Star Wars chic...|
I might like Chewbacca, but I don't want to dress like him!
|Because we all want to look like we are wearing a fungus.|
|Ok, the shirt isn't bad...|
But the fabric choice is a bit frightening.
|Sequins or no, cheerleader skirts should stay in high school.|
|Check out the fringe on this poncho!|
|Pleated skirt dress!|
As far as the worst pattern of the month goes, that was a similarly difficult choice because there was so much bad. But, in the end I had to give it to:
|Fringed Poncho of DOOM.|
So, what do you all think? What are your favorite and least favorite patterns for the month? Is there anything here that gets you really excited for this issue? Or are we all going to keep our fingers crossed for a good November? And doesn't it feel weird to already be looking at the Burda for October - like the year is moving too fast? Feel free to discuss in the comments!
