I knew from the cover that there would probably not be much I'd want to sew in it, but there are several, including some plus sizes that will work for me. Some of it was just too frilly and exposed for me, but if you are young and fit, you may like a lot of this. What I don't get, is why they all seem to love the American west as a design influence. You've seen it in Burda and Patrones too.
Anyway, here's what interests me. Obviously not this cover, but this is how the text got lined up.
You'll notice the obvious cowboy reference?
I like this dress. It's in a very Missoni like knit that would be great to find but of course that's not happening.
Love this top. Think of all those scraps I can use up! I'll leave off the scribbly stuff. Too crafty by far.
This is perfect for some open work knits that I bought on a whim. There's a tank under with back shaping. Kind of interesting. This is plus sized btw.
she looks larger than the regular sized models, but take a look at this one. Does she even look close to plus size?
On the whole there are several things I will add to my sewing queue so the purchase was not a total loss. I am having trouble with blogger and can't figure out how to get the type and pictures to look good together. I haven't figured out how to make columns with pictures inset next to type. It's frustrating especially when you just want to write a quick post.
This issue had the white, girly, ruffly first half and to me, the more wearable things in the second half. All of the plus sizes were quite nice. The only objection I have is that there is nary a dart in sight even in the plus sizes, that and the waist size is absurdly smaller than the bust and hips. Way smaller than even Patrones which is smaller than Burda. One other thing I really like is that the fabric choices are clearly given below the text for each garment. I don't know Italian fabric vocabulary, but a lot was either added it in English or it is the same in Italian so easy to understand. They also gave more than one fabric suggestion for each, not just what the garment is made up in which is a definite plus.
