I can’t wait for this issue! I love so many of the patterns coming out next month, not to … More January 2018 BurdaStyle Magazine
It seems hard to believe, but we are finally looking at the final Burda magazine for the year! The second half of this year has absolutely flown by; it’s hard to believe we are already looking at things for December.
