Overall this looks like a pretty decent issue. We get 5 patterns with 3 versions each, as has become rather standard for these magazines now that they are published 4 times a year instead of twice a year. All of the styles look relatively easy, and are actually pretty cute! Let’s jump in:
#1ABC – I really like the coat variations, especially the option with the tie belt. I think the long version looks really practical for winter, as it would be nice and roomy and easily fit over a sweater.
#2ABC – Speaking of sweaters, I think these are some pretty cute options. I like the dropped shoulder and high neckline – they seem like very on-trend details. I’m not sure I love the sweatshirt fabric Burda used for view C – it makes it feel a bit cheap, but I do like the wrist ties in view B and I think the styling in view A looks very luxe.
#3ABC – I really like this top/dress too! I think the square neckline is a fun detail, especially for a knit top. I really like the way Burda has made the draft of the separate pattern pieces for the top; aside from color block options, it should be easy to put together.
#4ABC – I’m not as excited by this dress (omg so short!), but I do think that the jumper version is quite cute and could be really popular. Burda’s styling there is on point.
#5ABC – Finally, we get some trousers. What’s great is I think these would pair well with the tops, and look great with the coats as well. I’m also a bit shocked at how much I actually like these pants, since they really are just elastic waisted with elastic cuffs. I think Burda did a great job with the styling, and they have pretty much convinced me I need to try them. Not gonna lie, Emily Hallman’s sequin joggers may be where I end up drawing inspiration for fabric choice though… I’ve been obsessed since she made hers and now I think this might be a good pattern to try my own…
And that’s it! Overall I think this is a pretty decent collection from a Burda Easy magazine. I think it has a nice mix of pieces, and these styles certainly look like they would be quick to sew over the winter season, which is definitely a bonus. Probably nothing that is an immediate need-to-make, but all of these patterns will certainly be options I’ll keep in mind as we head into the new year.
