There are a couple interesting t-shirt patterns in this issue. This one has this draping on the front that I'm not too sure about... I want to like it, but it just doesn't convince me... I mean, I'm the kind of person who would be caught in a door knob or something within minutes of wearing this t-shirt, so...
EDIT: If you want to see a finished version of the t-shirt, my reader Carla very kindly sent me a link to Kathy Sews's blog. Thank you!
This other t-shirt again looks interesting on paper... but again it doesn't convince me. This thing at the neck feel a bit constrictive to me and I don't really like how it connects in the back.
The skirt is the first of a series of very, very cute A-line skirts in this issue. Quite lovely, really.
Finally for knits, I'm quite intrigued by this little dress here. I love the mix of materials and the asymmetry at the front. I'm also intrigued to know how that neckline is constructed (it looks like a triple band of some sort?).
Now, for a little bit of controversy.
You know what I'm about to say. THOSE PANTS. If you're one of those people who loves them and could even make them work, just know I admire you, because I can't help but shrugging and thinking "hideous", and I don't know if that just makes me a little small-minded. But yeah, I can't help it, I just hate them.
The jacket is really cute, but that's not the point, I'm too distracted by the pants.
And speaking of cute jackets... Hello! This reminds me a liiiittle bit of the Ninot jacket, the latest pattern by Pauline Alice and although I don't need a jacket like this one right now, it's a very, very nice one if you like a bit of vintage in your look.
The skirt is just beautiful, I die for all those pleats!
My gosh, there's a lot going on in this dress... I really don't like the neck flounce, it looks a bit too... junior to me (and spoken from someone who wears Peter Pan collars almost daily, that's saying a lot).
I like the tucks, but I feel like there are way too many.
The top here is cute and has tons of potential for variation. The pants... eep! I really don't like them at all. That flared leg is so 90's to me and the pocket placement on the back seems very very wrong.
What do you think, guys? To purchase or not to purchase?
I think I will get this issue, I'm not incredibly thrilled by it, but it's one of those I might regret not getting later on.
Nuovo mese, nuova review di Burda (non ancora in italiano, sorry!).
Che ne dite dei modelli di questo numero? Io probabilmente lo comprerò: anche se non mi fa impazzire, ci sono abbastanza modelli interessanti, e sono sicura che se non lo comprassi, tra qualche mese me ne pentirei... Mi è già successo troppe volte!
