Newsflash: Burda Easy Preview Posted

The Russian Burda website has posted the full preview of the Spring/Summer Burda Easy.  The early preview had been on the German website a while ago, but since I didn’t see anything super exciting I decided to wait until the full preview came out to make an assessment.  As is often the case with me and Burda Easy: I am not impressed.

I mean, I love a nice, quick, simple pattern just as much as anyone else, but I also appreciate fit and detail as well.  It seems like a lot of the designs in this issue are oversized or very basic.  So much so that I didn’t even think it worth re-posting photos of many of the styles here.  In any case, I will take a peak at a few of the more noteworthy looks:

This jacket is probably my favorite design in the entire issue.
Not enough to make me buy the issue, but it is a cute jacket.
The shorts aren’t too bad either.
A variation of the brown jacket, with a softly tying waist detail.
The line drawing looks cool at least.
This dress is cute, but I think I could find something similar
in one of the regular Burda issues I already own.
The top looks like a less fitted version of the asymmetrical top from the February issue.
I like the skirt, but apparently I am just craving a circle skirt at the moment?
The waist tie detail on this skirt is ok.
Though I actually preferred the twist detail on this skirt until I saw…
The line drawing!  Is it seriously just a piece of fabric wrapped around the body?
Am I the only one who worries about it falling off?
This looks so sloppy!
Straight jacket couture?
My first thought: My teenage daughter is so not leaving the house in this!
(At this point it is important to note that I do not currently have any children.)
My second thought: Damn I am getting old!

So, what do you all think?  See anything that will tempt you to pick up this magazine?  Are you a fan of Burda Easy’s simplified designs?  Or do these leave you board and uninspired?  Does it feel like the Burda Easy designs are geared towards a younger audience than the regular issues?  Feel free to discuss in the comments!

  1. Gah! My teenage daughter is SO not allowed to date a guy that looks like that!! (I have no kids either.) And yes, that skirt is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen.
