A new Burda Classics is out, at least in France.

Pictures can be found at Wild Hibiscus's blog : here

Honestly, I had a look at it this week-end and found it disappointing, but ymmv.

I ordered from GLP News a couple of months ago and received it in the mail this past Saturday. Although I love quite a few of the clothes, I was really disappointed with the number of repeats. Ignoring the different variations/versions of each pattern, there are only 14 core patterns.

I will say that Burdastyle REALLY loves Jacket 0007 with the large detachable fake fur collar, as it appeared in 3 pages! I am considering making the jacket minus fur, and would have preferred to see 1 version without.

Curious why neither of the 2 trouser patterns -- shown in 11 photos and some made with wool -- include instructions for linings. I'm still a complete beginner with pants and am not confident enough to attempt a pattern without instructions for adding a lining.

It may be a European thing - I must say that I've NEVER seen lined pants around here and, althouhg I now know it exists, the idea still baffles me (it must be awfully uncomfortable ???)

I really like this coat:

The version made up in pinstripes is really cute too:


Nothing terribly ground-breaking, based on the pictures posted, and sewists with a healthy-sized library probably won't need most of these patterns, but for someone just starting out there are lots of good basics. I'mma head to the international magazines store in the garment district to see if they have any copies.

Thanks for posting!
This confirms the impression I had with the first issue of Burda Classics that it is intended for women of a certain age who don't feel comfortable with the more fashion forward looks in the regular magazine. These are most of the ladies I see at the haberdashery. They don't mind that a style looks a little dated. However, I feel that Burda should have made an effort to give us updated classics rather than dowdy.

Thanks for posting this. It is a great treat to see it. I have several years worth of Burda plus several orphan copies that I might have all these patterns. However, I still want to see what they are offering

I'm interested in the handbag in pic 5. Does anyone know who it is?

Lined pants are very comfortable, especially when the pants are a heavy scratchy wool; you line them with a nice luxurious lining and they become very wearable. They're also nice for light fabrics, because the lining keeps your underwear from showing through, either in colour or shape. And in places where it gets very cold, nothing beats a pair of flannel-lined jeans.

As for technique, the easy cheater way to get started is to just do an underlining and cover your seam allowances with bias tape.

The small print in the photo says that the bag is by Longchamp.

Don't know about fashion forward, but it was a good: nvestment since I wanted a skirt exactly like one of them and one of the knit blouses.

There's about 4 things I will make for staples so it is ok for me.
