La mia boutique 02-03/2012

I'm starting to be a big fan of this magazine, so I was a little sad when it was announced on Facebook that there was going to be one issue for February and March.
So, are you curious to see what's inside?

These cropped jacket and dress are on the cover and the designer patterns of the issue. I really love them! The double peter pan collar of the jacket is adorable and the dress looks so flattering. Definitely a double win.


These shorts are so cute! I love the front pockets and the curved seam at the back.
The t-shirt pattern, although very basic, is very nice as well.

The skirt is way too short for my taste but I really like the design. The tunic is once again quite basic, but it has some very nice details, like gathered shoulders, a button placket and a curved hem. Perfect for layering.

When I saw this photo, I started laughing so hard! The expression of the model and the general quality of the shot make some Burda photoshoots look like art. Anyway, I really liked the skirt pattern and how the bow is constructed. So cute!
The shirt is a pattern as well, but it's a body-suit (I hope I'm using the correct word for it: basically, it buttons at the crotch.)! EEEEW!!!

If you're curious to see the remaining patterns of the issue, you can find them, as usual, on my Flickr page.  

Burdastyle Magazine 03/2012

I don't know why, but the new issue will be out in a few days and the usual, complete preview is not online yet. So, in order to put this post together, I had to piece images here and there from the German and Russian Burda site. Becasue of this fragmention, I didn't really manage to form a good idea of this upcoming issue, but here are my highlights anyway.

These pants have enough details to make them interesting to me. Also they have elastic at the back, which is a big plus for me, since my derrière is quite difficult to fit.
I also like the lenght.

Cute shorts! I like the waistband, the welt pockets and I think they look really cute in this fabric.

I still haven't decidec if I like this dress or not. I think it might be right up my alley made in a soft floral fabric.

Love this! It almost seems like something out of Pattern Magic. I think the checkered fabric works perfectly.

This skirt is probably not for everyone (I mean, a knot right THERE might be a bit too much), but it has an interesting design.

I really like the button-ups of this issue, they have interesting details and, once again, I love the fabric they chose. I think they look really great in these very light, gauze-like cottons.

If you want to see the scans of previous issues, I updated the Flickr Set of 2012 Burdastyle Magazine.
