Featured in the PR book!
...The magazine, people! ;)

Seriously, "LUCKY" magazine is one of the best magazines to get great sewing ideas with the latest fashions and trends. It blurs the line between a magazine and a catalog, because it gives you information where you can buy the items, yet it has a fashion magazine format and interesting articles.

Close-up photos, similar styles (skirts, tops, dresses) grouped together, with fabric types, etc. They also feature up and coming designers, too.

My favorite inspiration source for making my sewing projects more RTW.

I've never heard of this magazine. Is it available at Barnes and Noble?

It should be, probably near the fashion and womens magazines. I've also seen it at Target, grocery stores, etc.

Oooh, don't you just love, love, love Lucky? I have a subscription & it's definitely my favorite magazine, and I subscribe to several. Best layouts & closeups of all of them! The Lucky Shopping Manual is a good one too for building a wardrobe.

I didn't understand which magazine she meant. Maybe I overlooked it. If I did, I am sorry.

I agree, it's the best and I just sent away for a subsciption. You can SEE the clothes. What a novel concept.

I agree! The subscription is very reasonable - I think I pay $12/12 issues.

They also have a website: Also, in their BIG September issue, they show the new cardigan sweater shapes, almost a cut-away curve in the front. There is still time to recut my cardigan! :)

Thanks for this info. I have seen the magazine but did not buy it. May give it a try.

Thanks for the info. I checked out the web-site and it looks like another magazine to look forward to arriving in my mail box. I was thinking of letting my Sew News subscription lapse however.

Real Simple has great clothes ideas too.

I totally agree with you, Oopsy Daisy. I devour Lucky, Elle, Bazaar, Vogue, and all others (slight magazine addiction). Some great inspirational books are the Lucky Shopping Manual (bit pricey but lovely with the same format as the magazine and lots more style tips) and InStyle Secrets of Style (similar to the Lucky book) but really great with basic styles and accessories. Lord knows that we want our clothing to be flattering and stylish. I think that both these books help with both. Great investments.

And don't forget all those nice, meaty September issues weighing in right now for fall/winter stylin'!
