Apparently my addiction to coat patterns is legendary – you know it is bad when other sewing bloggers have to inform you that a new magazine is out and that you really need to take a look at it. Oh yes, bad indeed.
In any case, the new My Image magazine is out – you can flip through the entire My Image Fall/Winter 2012-13 here. The cover image should be a pretty good indication of my latest pattern of covet.
Because I have a think for teal and a thing for coats, the surest way to sell me on a new pattern magazine is to show me a teal coat. My weakness…
|The collar detail! LOVE! Oh, and I like the dress too. And those pants, oddly enough.|
In fact, I love this coat so much I will show it to you again:
|I want to make one…|
Oh, and there were a couple other good things too…
|I like the small jacket and the dress. I might even wear the shorts.|
|I am also a fan of the cozy looking sweater…|
Here is a look at all the patterns:
|The coat is a huge YES and I like about 6 or 7 others…|
So… I ordered one. I have made one My Image pattern so far, and have actually received unsolicited compliments on it, love the fit, and wear it often. So at least I know I already approve of the My Image drafting and fit (oh, and they are way easier to trace than Burda). I considered a subscription, but since I usually only really find patterns I want in the fall/winter issues (beautiful coats, every year!) I decided to just order a single copy. Since I just renewed my Burda subscription I figure I can wait until the Spring/Summer issue comes out next year – if I am impressed I will start a subscription then (and keep the payments a bit farther apart), and if not then I didn’t waste my money on patterns I won’t use.
So, My Image – have you tried it? Do you like it? Do you want to try it? Does anything in this issue capture your fancy? How terribly bad is my addiction to coat patterns? Discuss!
