Burda Style February 2011

Have to say February 2011 isn’t one of my favourites. The Italian style dressing story just isn’t my style, although the two simple dresses are sweet and look like easy sews. The nautical story again not really my style and the one pair of draped pants I loved weren’t included in the patterns. Its quite frustrating when Burda does that!

I’m rather partial to a shift dress, easy to sew, easy to throw on with some tights for work, or sandals for weekend, so don’t mind the two variations on the same theme, shown here in a mustard and a pink. I’m thinking these would look nice in a grey or a navy. The three little girl dresses are rather lovely – I can see number 145 with three quarter sleeves in a range of different colours for both my girls! Both the frilled dress and the long dress (shortened) look simple and easy to make into fun summer play dresses.
You can purchase many of these patterns individually on burdastyle.com or get your hands on a back issue of Burda Style Magazine 02/2011.
