Burda Style Magazine December 2014

This issue suffered from weird sleeve syndrome. Its a sewing affliction where otherwise interesting patterns feature unwearable bell, puffed or awkward sleeves. I dare you to wear a bell-sleeve and try to do anything that requires the use of your hands… or arms…

The other affliction on offer is that of the “graphic patterned fabric that makes you appear pregnant”… again generally not ones choosen silhouette (check out the dress with waist yoke 106).

Now onto the stuff I do actually really like, a lovely little a-line skirt with a box pleat, some great kids dresses and jackets, and the PJ/Loungewear is gorgeous.



  1. I liked these too. That ‘peplum’ top (105) and box pleat skirt (103) is on my wish-I-had-more-time-to-sew list.

    • As are all of the above for me πŸ™‚ If only there were a few more hours in the day πŸ™‚
