I don't have a proper intro for this post. The preview of this issue left me indifferent... nothing to really despise, nothing that makes the issue worth buying. You be the judge. Ok?
When I said nothing to despise, I meant except this stuff:
These patterns just make me say "Fuck you, Burda" to my computer screen.
In the past, some of you rightfully pointed out to me that it's useful to have patterns for absolute beginners, but I still think that you don't need a pattern for this stuff. Especially a pattern you have to trace off a complicated sheet and add sewing allowance to.
I do am (can you said that?) a person that gets pissed off easily, but this just infuriates me.
Moving on to some nice(r) things.
VERY cute. I couldn't figure out if it's a designer pattern or a vintage one or what. I'm not over the moon about this simply because I don't have any occasion to wear a dress like this. Other than that, it's pretty great.
not too long ago.
At a certain point, while I was looking at this preview, I started thinking the Burda team is thinking WAY ahead of time. A drapey, sleeveless maxi dress with sandals in February? I'm going around wearing multiple layers, boots, a coat and a wool hat, how am I supposed to get excited about a pattern like this one (and the previous one)? By the time I can wear something like this, I'll have probably forgotten entirely about these patterns.
To sum up this post... YAWN.
But what about you? Are you going to buy this issue?
