I just got this link in my email this morning.

April 2010

I have to say that I was surprised to find several items I like a lot after being very disappointed in the preview.

I couldn't find the line drawings though.






I'm definitely pleasantly surprised. I also liked the jacket, the short pants and a couple others.

edited because it helps it I actually put the link in!

Wow, I just yawned through 90% of this. Basics, basics, basics. I've already got most of these patterns from past Burdas!

I quite liked this dress, but I'm not sure if it's off the shoulder:

Yeah, there are lots of basics. If you like polo shirts you are going to be really happy.

I like the Balmain inspired jacket too.

I liked several things quite a bit, but there were a few things that left me puzzled:
Why is Burda so obsessed with safari themes?
A tit-tassled vest??? Really???

Hmm. THere may be a lot of basics, but I don't have a lot of basics, so that's not a bad thing. There seems to be a lot that I would actually wear, so I think I will get this one...

Edited to add, I thought the vest looked like the tasells had dropped myself...

Wow, I love everything almost! I just had a laugh over the Black vest - I had visions of a 90 year old stripper with the tassel placement!!

I like a lot of this also. It was kind of difficult to see the details because some of the pictures are very dark. But some of the blouses are really cute and although I don't wear skirts very often, I even liked some of the skirts.

The tasseled vest looked costume-y to me. Can't say I'd be making that. :)

I think I'm going to really like this issue. I love all the basic polos and shirts--particularly the shirt dress. I liked the cargo-inspired pieces too.

PASTIES were what popped into my mind too on that vest!
