Burda Style Magazine October 2012

This issue has not one, not two, but three amazing coats. The short designer coat with peter pan collar is a stand-out classic, as is the military coat. I’m also in love with the black asymmetric jacket with jersey arms – very edgy and cool. I’ve also included a fourth coat – unfortunately it has fluffy fake fur panels in the example, but this would be equally cute with contrast fabric or no panels at all.

I’m not usually a fan of a bias cut dress, but the grey bias dress with a cowl neckline is absolutely gorgeous – very Mad Men, but entirely appropriate for a modern workplace.

The shirt suffers from a poor fabric choice (corduroy!) but a lovely pattern which would look nice in a chambray.

In the kids patterns the tunic dress looks like a simple one to make, and easy one to wear, and I’m loving the parka – pefect for a Sydney Southern Highlands winter.
