La Mia Boutique 11/2012

It's sewing magazine week here at the blog, apparently. So, let's criticize some Italian patterns, shall we?

After I saw this pattern, I couldn't be impartial anymore. I mean, they CLEARLY included it to win me over and have me write a positive review. Mission accomplished!
Joking aside, I kind of squealed when I saw this blouse. I mean, it does have my name written all over it, doesn't it? So refreshing to see something on trend AND wearable on a sewing magazine.
Thank you, guys at La Mia Boutique.

But it doesn't stop there.
How adorable are these two coats? I'm especially in love with the second one. None of the two is earth-shattering innovative or original, but it's two flattering, classic designs that would work on many many people.

One thing I love about this magazine is this kind of very designed, very detailed, unique patterns. That's what catches my attention, not the basic shapes that I could draft myself (or at least, not all the time!) that you see more and more often in Burdastyle Magazine.
That's definitely not the best photo to showcase the details of this dress (sigh!), but the technical drawing is very promising.

To be completely honest, I don't know why I included this top. It's not exactly my taste (except for the bow), it's not super flattering... It's different, I guess? What do you think? Maybe for someone a bit more mature than me?

The plus size section is also particularly inviting this month.
I LOVE this dress, a nice twist on the sweetheart neckline + lace yoke with an exposed zipper at the back. With all these nice details, they had to do it in black, huh? No back shot, huh? Sigh, again.

The asymmetrical dress is also very cute, the neckline seems very flattering on the model and everyone needs a wiggle dress, right?

Finally, I love how they vamped up a simple tank top with lace and tiny pintucks.

All in all, a very nice issue. LMB definitely wins over Burda this month!


  1. Oh my word. This just locks BWF in a cupboard and runs away, laughing! I love the coat (1114) and the 3 dresses. And the cami! Just lovely. BWF should really get their act together!

  2. The first top is so cute and so you! I like that it has little details like the button on the sleeve and the back. And the last top is cute as well but somehow the model does not look like a size 46?
    And I think if the shirt with the bow didn't have a bubble hem, it could be quite nice. I don't know how it is constructed, maybe it would work with a straight hem as well

  3. How cute! I'll have to snap up this issue!

  4. ooh, i love that first blouse and the second (blue) coat. VERY sophisticated.
