The Fall/Winter Burda Plus has been posted to the Russian Burda website. This issue, as with most of the Burda Plus magazines, contains a fair number of reprints from the regular editions. Fortunately, I think Burda picked some of the best patterns from recent issues, so overall this magazine is a pretty solid collection of looks. Having subscribed to the main BurdaStyle Magazine for the past few years, I already have a lot of these patterns in my collection, however, there are several new patterns that may just make splurging on this issue worth it for me.
As this is the Fall/Winter edition, there are some really fabulous new coats and jackets along with a few other patterns I can’t recall having seen in previous issues:
Love this coat! It is absolutely gorgeous. The oversized collar seems to be a strong trend this year, but it is nice to see it in the Burda Plus sizes.
I feel like I’ve seen this pattern in the Burda magazines before, but I can’t seem to find a reference image. Either way, I think this is a lovely silhouette and I like the pockets.
There are several magazine reprint patterns, along with new variations created for this issue of Burda Plus. First, from the August 2013 Burda:
From the November 2013 issue there are a lot of cute dresses, plus some new variations:
Love this color blocked version of this basic knit dress. I think its sort of hilarious that the garment photo is of the back.
Also love this new sweater-length version of the pattern. The collar look so cozy.
I’m glad Burda picked these patterns from the March 2014 issue – they are still fantastic patterns:
I also really love this longer variation of the pattern.
So, on the whole, the majority of the patterns in this issue are variations on previously published patterns. However, I think a lot of the newer versions have me reconsidering patterns that I had ignored initially. Not to mention that the cover coat is a total winner. So, if you already have all of the other issues this might not be an essential magazine, but if you only buy the occasional issue this might be a good one to add to your collection. What do you all think? Is this a worthy issue to add to your Burda collection? Or are you bored with all the reprints? Fell free to discuss in the comments!
