|S1194 - I know it's a basic dress, but I really like this 50s reprint pattern.|
I really enjoy seeing the original art on the package as well.
|S1195 - I really like this SewStylish dress pattern too!|
Love the use of lace on the shoulders of the black design.
|S1196 - A Leanne Marshall dress design.|
Normally I am a fan of her patterns, but for me this one is kind of dull.
|Line drawing of the Leanne Marshall pattern.|
|S1202 - A SewStylish wardrobe pattern. I actually rather like the top,|
and the pants, jacket, and skirt aren't bad either.
|S1203 - Another wardrobe pattern. None of the pieces are |
particularly exciting, but I could see how they might be very practical.
|S1197 - 1960s Vintage reprint dress and coat.|
The 60s is so not my ear, but these actually pretty cute.
The color blocking works well with modern trends.
|S1221 - 1940s Vintage aprons reprint.|
I don't often buy apron patterns, but these are pretty cute.
|S1199 - Blousey knit t-shirt patterns.|
It is fine, but nothing overly exiting.
|S1198 - More knit tops. The draped hem reminds me |
of a lot of the Burda patterns from last year.
|S1201 - Knit skirts. Another pattern that is fine, but not overly exciting.|
|S1200 - Circle skirts. Cute, but I've got a lot of circle skirt patterns already.|
|S1220 - Doll clothes. Cute, but sort of generic doll's dresses.|
|S1219 - Disney doll patterns. These are really cute! |
Definitely going on my list.
Burda has also released their sneak peak of the February issue. Based on the early preview pictures... I'm not too excited. Based on a more complete preview on P-an-da blog... I'm still not too excited. I mean, yes, there are a few things I'm pretty sure I'm going to want to make, and a couple others I might like when I can see the line drawings and not just the garment photos made in a crazy print fabric, but, on the whole, not too excited for this one.
|My first though was ooooh! |
But after looking past the cool fabric my second thought was oh.
The cut of the hem makes me think of a nightshirt,
and the collar isn't doing much for me either.
|Ruched knit dress. I'm always partial to these, but, then, |
we've already got how many in recent months?
|Crop tops: cool for the younger crowd. I am not a part of the younger crowd.|
The skirt has pockets. Pockets are cool. The length is awkward.
|Same top, different bottom. The skirt is fine, |
but I dunno how I feel about the giant pocket placement.
|Boxy jacket is boxy. I'm going to like it better in the longer length.|
|I'm assuming this is the same knit pattern as above,|
only in an awkward mix of prints.
Not loving the fabric choices here.
|Sack dress! 'Nuff said.|
|I'm sort of liking the way this dress fits the model.|
|The extra drape on this skirt is a bit too voluminous for me.|
Burda has done similar, but more subtle versions in the past that I prefer.
|We get lots of white tops in this issue. |
Not a fan of this one - the volume is a bit much.
|Same as the pink skirt we saw above.|
|Why do all of the white tops have so much volume?|
|The Plus section looks really classy this month!|
Love the coat and the dress.
|Nice basic pants and top.|
|Hmmm... maybe not everything is super classy.|
I actually like the jacket, and the pants, but not together.
|The kids section looks really good this month too.|
Lots of pretty dresses and formal wear.
|This little suit is adorable!|
