Burda 09/2011

I had completely forgotten about Burda until the September issue showed up in my mail yesterday. "YAY", I thought, "it's going to be a surprise since I haven't seen any preview online".
Oh, indeed, what a surprise! The Burda editorial staff probably had a great vacation this summer and instead of working on a new issue, they took some old patterns from the 80s and 90s thinking that the readers wouldn't have noticed.

WHAT THE F***??? Are you kidding me? Is that supposed to be a modern take on color blocking? What drugs where they on?
But it doesn't end here:

WHO WEARS THESE THINGS? People who drank as much as they did when they planned this shoot?

But luckily, there are some patterns for all of those poor Oktoberfest waitresses who need to sew their own dress for work. I mean, REALLY???

And if you're not offended enough at this point, I give you two more choices: a fugly blouse or the pattern for a faux fur scarf. Yes, I'm serious. Go and see the technical drawing, it's A RECTANGLE.

If it wasn't clear enough by the tone of this post, I'm SO mad at the Burda editors. Next month I'll have to decide whether to renew my subscription or not, and you can imagine what is going on my mind right now.
