Burda seem to be galloping ahead of the actual calendar at the moment!

Courtesy, as always, of our favourite Russian blogger, here are previews of the patterns in the February 2014 issue

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

Wow that was quick.

Oh and Quiot Riot called, and they want their pants backů

That first skirt is really interesting. Even in the simpler version down the page. And some of the tops look nice.

But those high-waisted, pleated pants are some of the worst of the 80s! Not sure why having them in a 2nd fabric makes it a different pattern. At lest the other patterns that are doubled up are a dress/top combo.

Well as they say, that's what makes horse races--I LOVE those pants, I am sure I owned them back in the day, and as the hipless wonder, they may make me look like I have some! Finally, an 80's look I am willing to rock again. What I don't understand it that v-necked dress with the belt in the back (10th photo)--I would wear that too, as I hate a waist seam but it's so clearly huge on that model, presumably a 5'11 Amazon, I would probably drown in it. Why don't they make the right size so at least they fit the models?

Interesting. Some weird deconstructed pieces near the end. I may need to get this issue.

Too funny about Quiet Riot! But I did like quite a lot of what I saw. Just a little shy about Burda at the moment due to the only Burda I've sewn had lousy almost non-existent instructions.

This was the only pattern I felt strongly positive about (but without the sleeve ruffles); not sure it's worth buying the issue for but definitely interested:


This top is pretty cute, though not sure it would work on me.


Most of the other designs were nice but I think I have pretty similar designs from past issues or envelope patterns.

I'm very ambivalent about this dress; I can't make up my mind whether it's trying too hard to be edgy; it definitely looks tons better with a belt though:


This shirt makes me go WTF; cuz every girl is going for the droopy chest look mirite:

Like SewLibra, I keep getting enticed by the Burda Magazine, but I worry the instructions are not detailed enough for my beginner level experience.

In this issue, I especially like the chemise shaped dresses. And, the design of the waist on the pleated trousers caught my attention.
