Her blog with a review of sewing mags is from 2010.
Can anyone update some favorites and sites where you
get trial issues?
It seems there are many foreign choices, some with
enclosed patterns that need translation.
I used to find some Aussie copies (dolls and crafts too) in B&N, but I am not near one now.
Maybe with PR's influence, we can get Sew Stylish to publish more often? They are always out of it in JA's, altho I could do without all the small accessory sewing.

BTW, Good Housekeeping has a great subscription deal on their site now. 2-3 years for $15-20 + $5 more for a year of Women's Day. I
like GH because it's still big, wide variety, and hasn't added all the racy articles that some have.

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking, but Ottobre Woman has good, wearable patterns with good fit and is also pretty easy to commit to financially, if you want to try it out. The subscription price for two issues (a spring-summer issue and a fall-winter issue, lots of patterns) is 13.80 euros plus 3.00 euros for shipping, so a total of only about $20. You do have to add seam allowances, but that's par for the course with sewing magazines. As with Burda, there's an English version available, so no need to translate anything (their English translation is better than Burda's).

You can check out the reviews of their patterns here -- just enter "Ottobre Woman" as the search term.
