I know it's only July, but I'm already gravitating toward back to school sewing. My oldest DD and I were browsing through technical drawings of back issues of Burda and came across this pattern. She is in love. This is the perfect little shrug for her. Funky sleeves. Asymmetrical Zip. Hood. What more could a 13 yr old ask for?
Problem is, I don't have this issue. It isn't often that I'm able to get her interested or excited about something related to sewing or dressing nicely (I don't want her to be too concerned about appearance, but I don't want her to be completely apathetic about it either, which is a lot closer to where we're at...)
I have checked a ebay and etsy and a few other smaller boards, with no luck. Is there any place else I should be looking for back issues like this? We've got a few others on our list as well.
