Since I started making these sewing magazine reviews in video format, I honestly have less and less time to prepare a blog post as well.
So, here you’ll find a selection of my favorite designs for this issue, and if you’re curious to see the magazine in its entirety, you can go to the bottom of this post to see the rest of the photos and the technical drawings, or you can watch my Youtube video. I realize it’s a lot to ask to non-Italian speakers, but you can always mute me and listen to some music, right? (Also, check out Silvia’s La Mia Boutique reviews as well).
The first patterns in this issue are wedding gowns (that can perfectly act as formal wear for guests).
I’m not a huge fan of none of these for me personally, but they’re original and quite pretty to look at, and I appreciate it when LMB offer this kind of designs.
Keeping with the formal wear, I loved the coat from the cover, with the 50’s silhouette and the zippered bodice. I’m not entirely convinced on the neckline, but that would be easily fixable.
The long dress is a rather simple pattern, so it’s beginner friendly, and you can’t deny it’s a showstopper, especially when made in a drapey, eye-catching printed fabric.
Finally, I really love the design lines of this jumpsuit and dress. The latter feels like a deja vu, but that’s ok.
That’s it for the moment, I’m afraid that’s the best I can do now. Please share your thoughts on this issue in the comments below!
