I won a La Mia Boutique!

Thank you Johanna! I put my name in for a drawing for the February 2010 La Mia Boutique magazine and won!!!! Woooo hoooooo! I scanned the line drawings for your viewing pleasure. There are quite a few things that I really like. Here are the two pictures of the complete line drawings.



Here are a couple close-ups for you guys. I absolutely loooove this jersey dress. How fun are all those pleats? There are 12 pieces and it looks a little complicated. I'm pretty sure I could figure it out though.



Here's a woven shirt that I love. This magazine has a lot of nice details.



I don't much like skinny jeans on my butt/legs (can you say incandescent light bulb?) but I love the seaming details on this pair of pants. I could easily make them straight leg jeans. The seaming is all decorative. There is only one piece for the front and back pant legs instead of several pieces. Actually, this would be really easy to duplicate on my Jalie jeans.



This is another cute knit top. Or, at least I think it's a knit top. It says, "maglina, vellutino di ciniglia, lycra (elasticizzati)" for fabrics. I put those into BabelFish and it wasn't very helpful. The model photo looks like it's a knit.



I'm a total sucker for skirts. I'm pretty sure this is for knits as the fabric says, "vellutino di ciniglia, jersey, and felpa (elasticizzati)". I'm pretty sure that "jersey" means, well, jersey.


And I can always use a turtleneck. I love the neck gathers.



After converting my measurements, I'm pretty sure that I would be a size 40. I'll probably mock up the skirt and see how it fits.

I am out of town starting tomorrow for a family death. I'll be gone for about a week so I'll see you when I get back.

I can't wait to see some of these made up!

Yes, the "maglina", "felpa", "vellutino di ciniglia", etc. are all knits. And they add they should be stretch (lycra) knits.
If you need any help with Italian, just let me know. I'd be happy to help you. You can send me a message through the PR website. I'm "mochimo" there.

Hello! I made that skirt and it is pretty cute! I didn´t use stretch material and it worked out perfectly.
It was a bit too long though, and since I was too lazy to shorten it when I had already basted the pleats, I just left out the bottom strip.

Yeah, Noile beat me to it, but I just made that last turtleneck (takeaway advice: use a drapey knit and go down a size). I'm making the top dress in silk jersey for my birthday at the end of March, too! Loooove that design...

Congratulations on your win and I love your blog! OMG! (30 Maglia pg 76) - I have a top exactly like that from Zara (it's a grey knit with black polka dots). One of my absolute favorite tops (from GAP) is similar: mock turtleneck with keyhole neck closure, self covered buttons, but no ruching at neck or waist and slightly more length and volume in the sleeves. In a black knit, it's simple, chic, layers well and goes with everything. Just yesterday, I was looking for patterns for the GAP top...but I may make an attempt to copy it. I wish I had 5!
