It’s been a while since we had a look inside the bi-annual, quadrilingual pattern magazine, MyImage – over a year in fact! But they’ve got a new issue out, full of Fall and Winter styles and they’ve got a few new tricks up their sleeve, too, like a wider size range for more patterns, and some pdf pattern options, too.
MyImage magazine is printed on nice, thick paper that’s actually larger than my scanner bed, so apologies that some of the images are a bit cropped here – you get a nicer look at the images than if I’d just taken a photo of it! Or you can always have a better look in the digital magazine flipthrough, too.
I knew it was a great sign when I saw these seamed jeans about two pages in – SWOON! It’s like they made a pattern just for me! I love, love, love the seaming on these – they’d look great from all angles and really take the average pair of jeans up a notch. Or for that matter, they wouldn’t even have to be in denim – I’ve some great stretch navy twill in my stash…
I also wanted to show you some of the improvements they’ve made to the instructions (which are, as always, offered in English, Dutch, German, and French) – many of the patterns now also have photos or illustrations showing how to do some of the details of the pattern construction, and these jeans actually have an extra tech drawing which labels where all the pattern pieces go! What a great idea!
The raglan teeshirt dress on the left could be a great style basic, but I also really like the jogging bottoms and cropped jacket on the right, too. The trousers reminded me of the True Bias Hudson Pant that so many people have made, and looks super comfortable for lounging!
This sweater would be a really quick make, with its kimono sleeves and slouchy fit – I also noticed here that it (and many other patterns, like the accompanying panelled skirt) now go up to size 50, too!
This last jersey tunic/dress pattern to catch my eye isn’t actually included in the magazine at all, but showcases the new range of pdf patterns, some of which look familiar from earlier issues (great if you missed it the first time around!). If you’ve got the magazine, you get a 50% discount on the pdf patterns, bringing them down to a (quite frankly, ridiculously cheap!) price of €2 each.
As per usual with My Image, you can browse through the full magazine here and see a full overview of the tech drawings here. I love that they offer this, as I usually have to spend loads of time compiling my own At-a-glance images for my own records, and this just makes it so much easier!
Thanks to the magazine producers, I’ve got a copy of this issue to give away to my readers! Due to international post skyrocketing in the last few years, however, I’m afraid I’m only able to ship to UK/EU addresses (mostly because there’s a cheap “printed materials” rate within the EU). If you live elsewhere and would still like to enter, please only do so if you’re willing to pay for the postage.
To enter the draw, please leave a comment below stating, in your opinion, the optimum date to start sewing Fall fashions. ha!
I’ll pick the winners by random draw next Thursday, 30 July. Good luck! Congrats to Terri, winner by random.org draw!
These issues were kindly provided by MyImage, but I’ve bought (and sewn!) plenty on my own in the past, and my opinions here are all my own.
