Impatiently Waiting for May Burda

Ugh. So I've been waiting for the May Burda. I ordered it through Sew Baby about 14 days ago. I hope it gets here soon. In June my subscription starts so I'm excited about that. For you Burda WOF folks, when do the subscriptions usually come? Middle of the month? I have a wedding to go to on June 7th so I hope I have enough time to make the dress and jacket from the May issue that I want to wear. I am planning on this dress in a knit from Gorgeous Fabrics and this top/jacket in a tropical wool from, who else, Gorgeous Fabrics. It is technically summer but the wedding it on the hillside in Anchorage and it can get chilly up there. Since the dress will be thin knit and sleeveless, I figured I needed something warm to go on top. When my May Burda gets here (clearing throat, drumming fingers) I am hoping to whip them out in a few days.
Mostly I've been spinning my wheels and working on a few UFOs because this is the project I want to start. Some of you will be happy though because I finally decided what to do with that vintage vogue dress that was that hideous color. Details soon.

REALLY??!?!?! Wow, that sucks. There are lots of reviews popping up on PatternReview so I hope you get it soon. I hope I get the May on ein time. I figure I can wait until next week but after that I may have to change plans.

My issue always seems to come the first Saturday of the month. I live in SW Washington.
