So I got my first Burda magazine after listening to so many people on PatternReview.com say how wonderful the patterns fit. How well they are drafted. How the patterns are trendy and stylish. I had to try. I knew that there would be some tracing involved but holy cow!!! Now I know how they pack all of the patterns into four large (large!!) pieces of paper. They overlap them like crazy. Here is a picture of what it looks like when I hang one of the pattern sheets up on my window. The paper is printed on both sides and I can see both when I put it up on the window to trace. Yikes.
Here is a close-up. Even though I am scared, I am attempting to make an easy skirt. I want to try out the directions and tracing thing first on an easy pattern before diving into a jacket that I really want to make. Here's the skirt I am making. I have a muslin made. I just need to cut out and sew together the fashion fabric.
Here are the two jackets that I really want to make:
I won't make it in silver.
I love this classy jacket with the ties. I certainly won't make it white and I'm pretty sure I'll wear a shirt under it.
I like this a lot too. I have a cocoa colored stretch poplin. It says fabric with body so it might work.
