Here it is!

At first glance there is nothing that really speaks to me, but I think this dress will be a sucess:



This is just scary It has my vote for the most unflattering pattern of 2011!

I think it's more the fabric than the pattern that's the problem.

I love these capris, though:

Thanks Joanico! I think they are still doing their "Fashion through the years" thing because that says 50s, no?

I'm loving the bustier dress. I need one (not sure WHY or FOR WHERE but whatever!)

ETA Ok, make that 50s inspired 80s looks!

I love the fabric, though! Especially the blue voile prints, TDF!

Here's the Petite offering (according to Google Translate). Crossing my fingers that the back is bare or V-neck


I see several things my mother would like, like this raglan tunic (one of several variations):

Is there any way to look at the line drawing of the BWOF designs, like on the Ottobre site? The way some of the Burda models are posed its hard for me to tell what the clothes actually look like

They ususally have technical drawings up at some point, but you have to look at them individually--there is not a handy pdf of all the line drawings like Ottobre.

Wow, that cut is just deeply unflattering. It screams 1980s Laura Ashley to me. Maybe it's the baggy fit combined with the super high neck, long arms, and dowdy waistline, but it also would be a PERFECT Amish dress in a plain fabric. But I doubt that's the market Burda were going for.

I love that gathered neckline blue top that was shown with the capris. I saw in the preview at the back of the April issue that it's supposed to be "Mad Men" style. Looking at these photos, I think that's a pretty loose interpretation...

I'm going to have to wait until the line drawings are available before I decide if I am going to splurge on this issue or not. With the way they pose the models, it is so difficult to decide if the item is what you think it is.

Doesn't look like anything I HAVE to make right now. The gathered neckline tunic looks promising, the orange t-shirt (?) dress looks comfy. I'd raise the waist to my natural waist and maybe add a belt. I need to see the line drawings to see for sure.

I prefer more fitted & tailored clothes that aren't too short & have sleeves. My waist is my favorite part of my figure, so I like to show it off. Most of the tops lately hide the waist. However, I do like the skirt on that light pink dress - it's awesome. I wonder if I could make it as a skirt.

That plaid dress is a little to fundamentalist Mormon for this non-fundamentalist Mormon girl! Maybe it could be a Halloween costume?
