My Image Magazine

 Update:  I got an email this morning from Sew Baby that they finally received their shipment of My Image. If you are interested in buying a copy click on the link above.

I have been hearing about this magazine since it first came out.  I wasn't impressed enough with the first issue to buy it, but Melissa at Fehrtrade reviewed the spring summer issues and put up links to their website and where to buy it, and I was hooked.  You can even buy it in the US for a reasonable amount of money. She also has links to buying it in Australia and from the magazine site.
There are at least 4 things I want to make in this issue, so again at $8,95 plus reasonable shipping it was worth the price.  A lot of prints but the styles themselves look very wearable.   I like the fact that most of them have good design lines for fitting that make them very appropriate for curvy women, aka moi.   I have too many knits in my stash but there's a great dress that I could make and live in this summer.  More than once.
I cannot figure out how to get images of the pages I like show up here, but here's a link to the  My Image website which is better than any of the other pattern magazines out there.  Go take a look.

  2. I really like this magazine. I have pre-ordered both issues from Sewbaby.com. I did find that the English instructions were a bit weird, but overall it's a good magazine.

  3. I'm glad I could enable! I'm thinking about doing that jacket as part of the PR mini wardrobe... Or, err, just make it anyway. :)

  4. I'm still on the fence on this one. Didn't buy the first issue. This issue has more appeal to me, and I assume I can see it up close in the shops here. I do like the jackets. I need a few casual ones.

  6. I think I am going to subscribe. It seems some wonderful Burda-philes stepped up to the plate to provide what they are currently lacking.

  9. Thanks for pointing me to the website since it's being talked about around the web. There are some interesting designs but the sizing is limited...and I saw a few that look like some Vogue or Burda patterns already in my collection. Let us know how you like working with the patterns.

  10. Thanks for this posting...I'm always interested in these pattern companies and magazines and it's interesting to note that you can pick these up separately as well as a subscription.
