May's preview is up!

Some nice plus patterns but as usual, it is difficult to tell without technical drawings.

Happy Sewing!

Well, Burda is keeping us on trend with the boho/gypsy look of the first dress, and the colorblocking/printed suit look.

And we are still in Italy, as I see. Pretty sure that black dress with surplice bodice is a Plus Size, judging by the model's visible hips...

Line drawings or nothing, I say!

You are quick! Thank you for the link.

That second dress is really pretty, becca.

Hard to say without the technical drawing, but I like the looks of this wrap jacket (but with a shell underneath!)

Wow! I don't usually go for overtly "boho" looks, but I really like that dress (or is it a separate top and skirt...?) in the butterfly-print fabric. I'm wondering if that fabric is a knit or a woven...

Also, I've never seen color-blocking like in the second dress. I hope that's part of the pattern, and not just the printed motif of the fabric.

I'm really liking the "resort" look of the entire preview. Can't wait to see the technical drawings!

Finally, some clothing that is wearable and not shapeless.
I love the second dress as well


This is the tunic version with narrow pants. Very current.

And for the first time some plus size clothing that won't make you look like an elephant.



I reserve judgement on this one because of that weird fold above the bust.

I have been looking for a blouse with a neckline with this so this is definitely on my list. Amazing, an issue with more than one thing I want to make! If only it keeps up.

It looks good so far.

Some beautiful plus items, I agree. (Here we go again with the "plus" model who looks like she wears about a size 6 U.S. )

2 years ago I'd of been annoyed by all the kids clothes, since my oldest is turning 13..and a boy. Now, I like the kids' clothes. Many of them are tons better then what I can find. I'm kinda glad I've got the sub now, if for nothing else other then the cute stuff for girls they have in this one alone.
