I am so pleased. It finally arrived! Our own BurdaStyle March 2012 issue. And the cover looks promising.
At first glance the issue is not very appealing. But I had another look and discovered a few projects I do want to make. All the projects are shown in the next picture.
I do love the dress on the cover page. Hopefully the twisted neck age will flatter me. Normally I struggle to fit the V-necks as I am large busted and I always seem to come out if i do not make changes to the patters, and the the moment I am not confident enough re-draft it. I would not know where to start.
Another lovely dress it the 102B. It is a basic dress, but by adding a layer of lace on top, the look becomes elegant and stunning. A must. Another lovely dress, is pattern 105. I’d make it more as a summery dress with patterned fabric. Also I might be make it shorter or even transform it into a blouse by making the top longer. Will just have to see how I feel about it, I guess. I’ve learnt when it comes to sewing I keep changing my mind all the time.
Lovely top 121, which comes with two versions, short and long sleeved. I prefer the long sleeves. But I would not use white jersey to make out of. I have a bit of a fear of white. I think it makes me fat and whenever I wear it it gets dirty pretty fast. So it is a No, No for me. 🙂
Also I love the DIY Trent projects described. The little ‘XS Bags’. All you need is a pair of old pants or a sock with personality. Also with a high impact are the ‘peplums’ made out of strong colours to create impact to a dress.
