The Spring/Summer issue of Burda Easy has been posted on the Russian website. The Burda Easy magazine always has fewer (usually simpler) styles than the monthly magazines, but it always has better instructions, so it can be a good place to start for Burda newbies. The summer issue has a lot of fairly generic stuff going on, but it’s worth a look:
On the whole the dresses in this issue look pretty simple in terms of sewing, but also look like they would be the sort of dresses that would see a lot of use in a wardrobe.
There are a lot of variations on the v-neck craftan style pattern in this issue:
Some cute options if you are looking for a peasant blouse style tunic or dress:
Interesting bodice on this dress – and a cut out in the back? I’m intrigued. The second variation with the bust bow is a bit… much, however.
Sort of want to see the pattern pieces for these shorts/pants:
Skirts seem a bit generic for this issue:
And that’s it. I’m not overly excited by anything in this issue, but I’m usually not for the Summer Burda Easy. A couple of the dresses look like they hit a nice balance of easy to sew and practical to wear during the summer, so who knows what sudden inspiration might hit when the temperatures hit triple digits, but for now I’m more intrigued by styles from the regular monthly issues. Any Burda Easy fans out there? Do the detailed instructions win you over? Or do the simpler styles put you off from the magazine? Feel free to discuss in the comments!
