There are several things that I like in this new May BurdaStyle. I really haven’t used my subscription much in the last year after all the fun stuff that’s been happening in my life. Now that I have a dedicated sewing space again and things are starting to calm down, I feel my mojo coming back. Here are my top picks. Remember I live in Alaska but I’m always drawn to the sleeveless styles. What’s with that??
Love this in the dress version. Online, they show it in a fuchsia pink and I actually, *cough, cough* like it. I know! It’s kind of bright and hideous but I like that it’s bright like that. We’ve been having warm, balmy, melty weather for the past two weeks but the last two days have been below freezing again with inches of snow accumulation. Blech. I’m ready for some bright and hideous!
I like this one too. It’s a tall pattern but I could cut it down easily enough if I wanted. I’m not sure where I would ever wear it. But, I do like it.
This is a petite dress (perfect!) and I really like the seaming on it. I love boat necks like that and it would be perfect for color blocking. Can you see black wool crepe in the middle and a dark eggplant on the side panels?
I always like a pair of shirt shorts. These are cute. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this same pattern in Burda about five times now in the last year or so but I still like them.
I like this jacket although I will never make it. I’m not really a jacket kind of girl.
For this, I will not even post anything. I will just leave you with this picture as the reason I would never wear something like this.
