I now own 3 issues of BurdaStyle Mag.
There are tons of things I love and want to make. T.O.N.S. But the tracing. I cannot wrap my ahead around the tracing :(
The US edition included codes to download some of the patterns online - SCORE. So my pattern for the Illusion jacket is a pdf that will be taped and traced:
There are pants and tops and a skirt and a dress and I want to make them...and obviously, people make them!!! But arrggghh! I need to buy a tracing wheel and some transfer paper to make it easiest or I was thinking about doing the whole, tape the stupid pattern map to the window and trace off. I keep telling myself to start with something simple (like the skirt) and go from there but nope.
And then I actually contemplated a 6 month subscription but...I haven't sewn anything from the ones I have and *had* to get! Oy!!!
Do you use Burda mag patterns?? How do you trace?
In other news, I wore my green top (LOVE) and plaid pants yesterday. Comfortable. So comfortable! I did hem the plaid pants a little long and the brown ones a little short. I got lots of compliments after I had to ask a coworker to snip a thread (there's always one more thread than what you snipped!) and she asked if I made it. The ladies were going gaga! One asked if I took orders.
1) No. No I do not.
2) My very best girlfriend will track you down and make your life miserable if I sewed for you!
In other sewing funnies, when I was doing the finishing on my pants, my daughter was sitting there. She gasped in horror and actually grabbed my hand when I went to to take the seam ripper to the buttonhole. "MOM! What are you doing?!?! That's going to cut them!" She's so sweet.
I am starting to notice a pattern of me coming up with plans and then those plans completely and utterly falling by the wayside. I do want to make a jacket, I really do...but I can't choose one. I haven't revisited the S1699 banana plaid jacket but maybe I should. That affected my mojo :/
(I have sworn that I do not want to quilt and then I saw this. "I can make a quilt fast. FAST!!!" Jeez louise. No to quilting. No. No. No.)
Friday is officially my 1 year sewing anniversary!!! Be sure to check back for my "anniversary post"!
