Our favourite Russian Burda blogger has posted preview images of the latest issue of Burda, 03/2014, here.

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

This looks interesting and I think it's one of the Wedding segment features:



And I like this skirt suit a lot, even the eyelet idea is cute:

I have to admit, on current evidence there's really nothing in this issue that I am very excited about. Maybe I will be more keen when I see the line drawings though.

I'm psyched to see the line drawings - looks like there could be some good stuff in here. Funny how Burda is so subjective!

It really is! Many is the time I've seen people rhapsodising over an issue where I'm all "uhhhh, no, that's all ugly" and vice versa! Still, vive la difference! I love how diverse this community is in our taste and sewing output. :D

I love that too - it's great to see so many different points of view - I love seeing amazing makes from patterns that I thought were "bleurgh."

It is very subjective. This issue looks good to me. If there are several patterns that interest me, I consider it a good issue! I appreciate styles that I may not be able to pull off or have no immediate need for but others may not. But I liked January and February too. To me, Burda had a slump a while back but has been coming out of it. Or, more likely, I am slow to adapt to new styles. But I am constantly reading reviews for styles I overlooked in the magazine and thinking how could I not have noticed them.

I am a married woman whose only daughter is in 6th grade, so wedding dresses are not at all on my radar, but I liked these. Very refreshing iafter a decade of strapless tops with full skirts. And many of them looked like that they could be made in a non-white fabric for other occasions.

I have to see the tech drawings. BS are so overly stylized in the photo shoots that it's hard for me to see the garment.

At first glance, I do like:






Minus the bell sleeve



Although I have yet to sew one single Burda Style pattern. I need a tracer wheel thingy to add seam allowances!

Me too!!! I had an issue of January available to purchase and then realized 3 of the 5 I liked were plus sized. It'd be cheaper for me to download the 2 I really want...

But I *really* want February and now I'm thinking I might want March.

Ohhhh I can't wait to see the line drawings - I really love having patterns for basics, and it looks like there's a lot of great t-shirts etc in this one.

I thought the Feb issue was a total bust. It's the only one I think I might put on ebay or something. This one I can't wait to get.
