Oh Marita, thanks for the link. I see lots of inspiration in those beautiful clothes.

My hope is to sew to the very end. They'll find my head slumped over my precious Kenmore 19606 and have to pry the seam ripper from my cold, dead hands.

I see line drawings, which RTW never provides, so I'm wondering if this is a pattern magazine and if it is, how do I get a copy?

Sherril - this is the Italian version of Burda WOF. I was thinking they weren't publishing any more. But unfortunately I don't know how to get a copy here in the States.

They obviously don't have the minimum model weight in Italy. I want to send those poor women some food.

top #33 looks interesting. And I like the #30 jacket.

With a great wardrobe that's still in the flat-fabric stage.

I think Ann means it's like Burda WOF but it's not related. It's an Italian company. I like Italian women. I feel normal around them because they're tiny like me.

I find the Italian fashions so funny. They have the glorious elegant blouses (a la Armani) then dive into the hootchie mama diva clothes (a la Donatella). Something for everyone!!

Sue,
you're so right, they can be downright frumpy sometimes:)

Allrightie, as soon as I get home I'll try and put descriptions on the pix, there's some that are plussized also.
I should've added the cover to the set, so there would've been no misunderstandings, my fault, sorry girls

La Mia Boutique sounds interesting. I did a little googling and came up with a tiny bit of info - better than nothing, I guess.

According to someone who posted a comment here, at Fashion-Incubator, it's a magazine for beginner/medium-skilled home sewers. And, it includes "actual full-sized patterns". (I'm wondering how many per issue.)

It's on the list of mags at Emma Marian Ltd--- a company that distributes mags, newspapers, etc. to stores and newsstands around western Canada. Unfortunately, that doesn't do me any good.
La Mia Boutique.

What???

None of the Italian women in my family are "tiny." Some are short, yes. But tiny? Nope. I guess I'm biased, but I think of Italian women as curvy at the very least.
