Go to "Guia de Modeles" to check out hte designs. Looks like a classic pattern mag issue - up there with the legendary 02/2005 Burda WOF!

I have a very complex chain trying to get me copies of Patrones from Spain... kind of mine own personal underground railroad. Amazing that noeone in the US has picked up on the potential audience for Patrones - even at 10 or 15 dollars a copy they'd sell plenty I'm sure.

Wow, so many of these look great -- I especially love the 50s-inspired designs. Hope your underground railroad comes through -- I'd love to see some of these made up!

Thanks for the link, so many pretty things. I really like the white wrap blouse with the three point collar and love the dark lime halter dress with stitched down pleats.

The outfits are so stylish that the above the bust mini jacket and topper fads may never completely make it to dreary Beantown, I'm afraid. (I have seen some sweaters, only on very young clothing store clerks, that look just like a turtleneck sweater, but end just below the armpit. Let me tell you that if you wear any larger than an A cup, this is not a good look!)

Happy sewing to any of you folks lucky enough to nab a magazine.

Thanks for the link, I'm just drooling. I keep looking for a Patrones (just to try it) - hoping one will show up somewhere! Maybe I'll get lucky and stumble across this one!

HMS7 - How does her site work? Do you e mail her and then work out the price, shipping, & payment?

Also is there a way to look up past issues (like Burda does on their site) to see what fashions are included in each magazine? I would like to try one of these magazines this year - a resolution I've made for myself. They just seem very difficult to get ahold of!

I just love these patterns and have wondered for a long time how to get them in Canada.

Any suggestions? Please.

Stacey and Karen
I think it was els last year in prior thread who told me about Marlo. Just email her, she understands English very well, and let her know you are interested in say the Feb issue . She has back issues from last year but not sure if all are available still. Yes I wished too to take apeek inside the issues, like you can do with Feb (and burda). Maybe you can, I dont know how to work the Patrones website very well.
But I just took a gamble and ordered 5 from last year and i LOVE them. Over 40( to 60 In the extra issues) DIFFERENT patterns. Not variations like burda does. True some of their pants get very similar...how many different pant patterns can you make
I even invested in alittle Spanish to English calculator. Have cut out some capris not made anything yet...will review to see how sizing is. But I feel the sizing is more in tune to my body. BUT they dont have them in all . It goes 40-44-48
For example in cm I am 88/67/95 which is a patrones 40 (88/66/94)
wheras burda 38 is 88/70/94. But what I Love is that their "ancho espalda" ...according to my little dictionary means broad back width....is 38cm in a 40 and a 38 size in burda is 35.5 cm. Well I am very flat chested but have a broad back from weights and swimming so I am thinking patrones should fit much better.
Also "alto pecho" I think is bust height is 24.5, burda is 27. Bust darts are usually too low so this may be better too.
They have a "altura cadera" hip height ?? Burda doesnt have this one...I am thinking waist to hip hgt.
BUT for you petites the back and front lengths are about 3 cm shorter than coresponding burda I will have to lengthen quite abit for i am long waisted and burda is even abit short. But much easier to do than bust/armhole stuff.
I dont know what tiro is...but its 66 for a 40

I am HOPING they will have fab pleated slouchy pants like the pic els posted on another thread...I am sure they will, they ae even more avant garde than burda.
Yes Western Union which Marlo accepts (No credit cards
) is quite abit pricey with fees.
But well worth it. I would love to start a sew along/Spanish sewing translation thread...very cool styles. Good Luck !
