When I looked through the preview of the September ’13 issue of Burdastyle on their website I was actually rather non-plussed. Same feeling when I looked through the first pages of the actual magazine yesterday. But then this:
Isn’t that just a brilliantly stylish dress! After a little rummage through my rather copious stash I have tentatively decided to make this out of a grew light suiting fabric for the sides and sleeves and a black/red/beige/brown flowery fabric for the centre part. I have just finished tracing the pattern so hopefully it should not be too long until I get around to sewing it.
Then there is a jersey faux-knot dress/top the technical drawing of which I can’t find online right now. This looks super stylish as well. Then a batwing top which looks very versatile and very easy to make, so what’s not to like.
And then there are baby clothes for girls, when my sister and a good friend are going to have girls in a short while – I call that handy!
So against expectations, the September issue has left me all excited.
How about you: did you see anything you like in a Burdastyle recently?
