You can always tell when I’m lukewarm about a particular magazine issue – it’ll not appear on the site for ages after it arrives! All I’m going to say is that the November issue arrived in my postbox last night and that’s given me a kick to actually share October’s with you, which didn’t really contain much for me….
Don’t get me wrong, if you have lots of kids to sew for, then this issue’s for you! But that plus the dearth of summer fashions just means I’m not all that excited by it.
I actually LOLed when I saw them describe the High-Low hem as “mullet” hemlines!! That’s fantastic! (No pattern’s here – it’s just the street style section)
Some of the kids’ patterns are fabulous, but then we have… this. Weird sweatsuit trousers with a pouch over the crotch. Of course!
Here’s a nice top with an illusion neckline and sleeve bands. I’m not fully on board with Camp Sleeveband, but I can see the advantage of keeping the sun off your shoulders without going to a sleeve. I remember in 2010 when Burda had them they seemed strange and shocking, but now I think they’re a lot more mainstream.
I just love the horizontal bust dart on this dress! Great print placement, too.
In the glut of kids’ patterns (Seriously, pages upon pages of them!) these boys jeans stuck out at me, and the body warmer isn’t bad either.
And, err, that’s it for me from this issue. a bit lacklustre, but I can’t think of a single magazine that’s amaaaaazing every issue, so Manequim are allowed an off-month, too. And besides – it gives me a chance to catch up on my Burda monthly challenge pattern…
Did anyone else notice that my Vintage Painter’s Smock is a Featured Member Product on Burdastyle.com right now??
