Whoa it's June's Burda Style already! It feels like spring has just started but time goes fast. May's Burda didn't bring me much joy, so I didn't bother to review. June's Burda is not the best ever, but there are so many patterns to choose from there's certainly some good stuff.
A shirt dress! With darts and nice lapels, and pockets!
A cute summer dress in mini, midi and maxi length. Great for at the beach or at a swimming pool. Or just because.
That pleat/split at the skirt is fascinating. I'm not so sure about the gathers at the shoulder and the ones at the waist though. Symmetrical gathers on the bodice would have been better I think, or no gathers at the shoulder. Still, it's a pretty dress and I love the green colour, and the fuchsia is bright and elegant.
Look there's that lovely green colour again! Including asymmetric ruching. Ruching is getting more and more popular in Burda it seems, and I'm very tempted to make a ruched item.
What's going on? Another green dress with ruching?! Haha, I love it! This one wouldn't be bad as a wedding dress, would it? Why do I always go for the pretty dresses, when I don't wear them :(
These pants have quite a romantic feel to them, and the pattern even comes with (less romantic) shorts. I like how nice they fit at the hips but are still very wide.
the shorts version
Oh, I really like these blouses! It's not very visible in the pictures how nice they are, but the drawings show it well. They have darts and there's two different necklines to choose from. And no difficult placket or cuffs, yay! The beige skirt comes with a pattern as well, but the pockets are so ugly! They stick out, not so nice.
This time we get some mother & daughter items as well. Why don't they make a mother & cat theme? Lots of sewists have cats! The matching mother & daughter dresses aren't that nice (in my opinion). There's only one set that is worth mentioning, and mainly because of the fabric.
They could have made a matching outfit for the (cat sized) lamb as well. The fabric looks like you could make it a project with fabric dye, that would be fun!
Well, all in all I'm relieved this month's issue of BurdaStyle is way better than last month's! The list of patterns I'd like to make is getting very long...
