One woman. One sewing machine. One giant stack of fabric. What could possibly go wrong?

I like children fashion. They look so cool but I don't have daughter.

The majority of this issue is pretty standard, but there are a couple looks that I love.

My favorite outfit is this blouse/slim pants combo, I have a weakness for tops with stand collars, and I love that the blouse pattern has a version that has a tie-neck too:


I must have this dress pattern, I love the seaming detail at the hip:


This plus-size outfit is really cute too; I actually bought that design last year in the form of a vintage McCall's pattern from the 60s:


I also really like these two tops. They're not that groundbreaking and people that have been subscribing to Burda for a while probably have both already, but they're great basic designs, and I love the styling in the picture.

I love the red plus size suit as well. Might even get me to make myself a suit.

But I really LOVE the red dress in plus size with the ruffle down the
front. Apologize but I don't know how to add picture.

In the area just above the text box where you type your post, there's a row of buttons, the one on the very end on the right says "Image" and you can click that button to add a picture. A box will pop up and ask you to put in a URL for the image you want to add. Usually, you can get that URL by right-clicking the image and choosing "Copy Image URL" in the pop-up menu (the exact wording might be different for different browsers).

For example, to add the picture of the red dress you're talking about, first find it on p-an-da's blog post, right-click it, select "Copy Image URL," which puts the URL on your clipboard the same way as when you use Ctrl-C, then come back to your post, click the "Image" button, and press Ctrl-V, then click "OK." What that will do is add a bunch of HTML code in the bottom of your post which represents the picture. If you want to move the picture around in your post, select the whole bunch of code and move it as a block.

If you're ever not sure you did it right, you can click "Preview" to see if it looks the way you want before you post.

I don't see a lot of new in the adult designs but the colors are wonderful!

I need line drawings but I like the green dress:



and I think it is also the maxi seen here:



Also tentatively interested in the vintage-inspired dress with the kick-pleat :

I have to say, I have never subscribed to Burda before, having just hit the point where I think I am ready. So in Oct I tried a 3 month subscription. I found one or two patterns in Oct. One or two in Nov. I was a bit underwhelmed.

But I am MOST excited about Dec. I may have to tell hubby that I want a subscription for my birthday (two weeks from now) for the year. I now see that it can be so exciting to see what will show up!

I still haven't made the plunge yet but I've been following the issues on and off for about a year. I've found that most of their dresses don't fit my personal style very well, so back when I was only interested in making dresses, I didn't see much appeal in the mag. But now I've started making separates, and I'm finding a lot of things that I like.

Another thing I've noticed is that I seem to like the Fall/Winter issues better than Spring/Summer. Other people have made similar comments. Obviously people's tastes will differ so I'm sure there are people that feel the opposite. But I do think their designs for each season change in tone. For the warm-weather designs, they seem to make a very strong effort to be inventive, which can be very hit-or-miss. But the cold-weather styles seem to overall have a more classic, tailored feel, which I personally find more practical and wearable, but others might find boring, and I can imagine that it might start to feel repetitive if you've been getting the magazine for a couple years.
