My favorite new designs for this issue are the jackets:
|The jacket is cute! |
Don't know if I think it is the right proportions to wear with
that shirt, but I still like the jacket.
|Love the lines on the back! The zipper pockets are cute too.|
|This jacket would be cute for a spring work wardrobe.|
|Feels very classy and feminine.|
|I like the collar shape on this boxy blazer.|
There were also a few cute dresses:
|I think the neckline is very pretty.|
|And back darts always get a thumbs up from me.|
|I thought this pattern-blocked dress looked sort of generic...|
|But I actually really love all the panels and seaming in the line drawing.|
|There is a second variation with a slightly different neckline as well.|
|I wasn't too excited by the photo of this dress...|
|But the line drawing isn't bad. |
Would probably look cuter if she were standing so the skirt could hang.
|Another case where the photo does nothing for me.|
|But based on this line drawing it could actually be quite pretty. |
Definitely a good dress for twirling.
And a few other interesting designs:
|Yes, it is just a pencil skirt, |
but it is a FABULOUS looking pencil skirt.
|Similar, but shorter...|
|No vent in the back, and lack detail at the waistband are interesting.|
|I thought it was hard to see any of the details in this photo.|
|The skirt is cute, but based on one of the re-print designs.|
|The top is... ok I guess. I would leave off the dust ruffle sleeves.|
|I thought the photo of this dress looked rather sloppy.|
|But I actually see potential in the line drawing. |
I think different fabric choices could help it a lot.
|I don't know if this giant vest is my style, |
but I do think it actually looks kinda cool in the picture.
|I think this is a stunning photo... |
but the sleeves and super wide neckline might make this difficult to wear.
|The fact that this is based on the jacket pattern shown earlier makes me |
think it would really need a neckline alteration to be functional.
|The shirt and pants... are sort of generic.|
|I feel like this looks a bit too boxy on the model.|
|The pants have elastic in the back of the waistband - sort of awesome for fitting, actually.|
There are only a few designs that leave me shaking my head:
|I think it is a combo of the pattern and print of the fabric, but... ugh.|
|Ack! Why, Burda, WHY???|
So, what do you all think? See anything you are super excited about? Or does this issue feel a bit more generic than Plus issues from the past? Anyone else wishing they would make that yellow jacket in the smaller sizes? Feel free to discuss in the comments!
