Finally, Burda Plus Fall/Winter 2011/2012 is available in European stores and technical drawings are up on the website; click on the links (exception: the 1st one = editorial) in the category MODE and on the tab 'Technische Zeichnungen'.

Some of the patterns look interesting, but than again I did not renew my subscription this year. My question is do woman in Europe where skirts and dresses that much more than we do in the states? It seems like lately Burda has had a lot more variety in the skirt and dress department than in the pants area.

This looks like it's going to be a much better bunch of patterns than I've seen in a long time. Very useable tops, blouses, jackets, coats and a nice straight skirt.

I like a few items, but I didn't renew this time and don't see anything I couldn't live without. I don't know if it would be possible to still get this issue from GCN anyway... I'll probably just let it go. That pea jacket is especially nice, though.

I don't know whether skirts are worn more in Europe -- interesting question, msladyj. I love that Burda has a lot of skirt patterns, quite a few with some sort of unique design element. I love skirts -- I could almost live in skirts, really.

This issue looks very promising. The "repeat" sections all have one pattern that I'd almost bought the regular issue for, and I like the new sections. If my company has a holiday party this year, I see some party dress candidates as well.

If you subscribed to the regular Burda over the last year then there are only two items you won't have.

I think I must have missed a regular issue because the "Celebrations" section is new to me.

I like a lot of stuff in this issue, except I have a huge WTF??? on the pinafore apron thing with an off the shoulder blouse. She's a lovely model, but that thing looks like omega class fug even on her.

You mean this? I thought that was weirdly fascinating. Not intended for anyone my age or height, but pretty unique.

It is oddly fascinating. But what is it? Big honking drapey silk apron... now with spangle pants!
