Newsflash: October Burda Early Preview Posted

Burda Russia has just posted the early preview of the October issue, which you can look at here.  After what I felt was a rather lackluster September, I was really hoping for a knockout issue in October.  But now that I have seen the early preview?  Well, I’m not holding my breath.  Honestly, some of this stuff makes the September issue look like Burda gold…

Burda started the preview with this photo,
and I immediately knew we were in trouble…
(It looks like it is made from bath towels and skinned teddy bears…)
Boring boxy sack dress.  Ick.
Hey, look!  It’s Mara Jade!
Star Wars chic is always in fashion.
I don’t know if it is possible to wear this dress as an adult and be taken seriously.
Hmmm… Didn’t we already do the overexposed sitting in cars photo shoot this year?
And didn’t we already have several boxy Chanel-ish style jackets this year too?
Though, to be entirely fair, the jacket isn’t bad.  I just want something different.
These jeans… have potential.  Assuming, you know,
that they don’t give us a pattern made of 20 million patchwork pieces.
A possibly redeeming dress pattern?
I’m waiting for the line drawings.
I never thought I would be so excited to see a pair of plain grey pants!
But if you sew from the Plus section you are in luck –
you can be heading to the office in style!
I actually think the jacket and the skirt are super cute.

 So I am sad.  The fall patterns are always my favorite, but unless there are some secret gems that Burda is keeping hidden away, there hasn’t been anything I am really excited about from any of the fall Burda issues.  I suppose we always have November and December to look forward to – we need our yearly dose of evening gowns and holiday pajamas.  So – what do you all think?  Anyone actually looking forward to anything here, or are you all totally disappointed too?  Who is still holding out hope for the full preview to give us something with wow factor, and who is ready to fast forward to November?  Feel free to discuss in the comments!

  1. I truly don't understand what is happening with the fall patterns this year. The only company with anything worthwhile looking at is Butterick. Which is disconcerting as well.
