Burda Style 8/2012

The August issue of Burda Style dropped through the letter box this morning, and I have to say there are some patterns in this issue that I love!

Look at the cover!  I looked at this and just went WOW! The yellow outfit, that I thought was a dress, is actually a skirt and top!  It’s separate potential is beautifully illustrated by this image:

I love the addition of a lace collar, paired with the dark floral straight skirt.  I love this classic style with a twist/edge.

There’s lots of work suitable items too!  I love this skirt with the godet in the front

And this blouse with the tie at the back is a lovely twist on a shell top

And this flowing top from the plus size section is a lovely classic piece

And isn’t this top and trouser combo just fabulous?!  I love the graphic orange print with the nautical twist on the wide legged trousers.

Even the kids section has (finally!) got some decent patterns for boys in it!  Two good solid shirt patterns and a nice slim fitting style trouser.  There’s even a jacket/cardigan thing.  For once it’s about a 50/50 split between the boys and girls!  And the boy’s pieces are classics, so whilst patterns for the boys may not come along too often, at least these can be used for a few years!

So, that’s at least 6 patterns I like just for me, with the bonus of three that I can see myself making for boy!

And I’m also featured on Elena’s Seamless Blog today!  Happy Happy!
