It feels so early, but the full preview of the April BurdaStyle Magazine is already up on the German site! My first impression of this issue was very meh, but I’m actually starting to find more to appreciate the longer I look at these designs. There’s lots to look at so let’s get started! First … More April 2019 BurdaStyle Magazine
In pattern release land it’s either nothing or way too much all at once. Last month the only new pattern release was the monthly Burda magazine, but March has barely started and we’ve already got new patterns from Butterick, Simplicity, BurdaStyle Magazine, and My Image.

It’s easy to see how great clothes can look on a stretched, exaggerated fashion drawing or on a lithe supermodel, but it can … More My Body Model/Sew Your Kibbe Guest Post!
The March Burda is here and I’m so excited! This is one of those issues that, while it isn’t really giving us anything too new, I still want to make all of the things! I am really excited by so many of the styles they are including this month, but I’m also kind of surprised … More March 2019 BurdaStyle Magazine
