I’m no longer on dog sitting duty since my parents have returned from the sunny California! And of course with them they brought me some lovely gifts:
A little clutch wallet, matching panties, california dates, and -drumroll- the new american BurdaStyle magazine- This is their second ever issue. Spring 2014
I absolutely love the european BurdaStyle magazines, so I instantly started to go through and pick out all of my favourite patterns and think about the ones that I want to make.
I also noticed that over half the patterns in the magazine were not in the traditional pattern insert in the magazine- but that they were ‘available as downloads’ to which I thought – great printing them out might be easier than tracing them.
So I picked out a pattern- went to the URL they listed in their pattern instructions and… it brought me to the page where you can buy it on their website…
What they failed to mention in this magazine is that the “+ 23 more styles to download” are NOT INCLUDED – So rather than getting all 43 patterns in the magazine like you expect from a BurdaStyle, you only get 20- whichever 20 are included in the pattern insert.
As Murphy’s law would dictate- most of the things I wanted to make were not included like:
or this dress
There are a couple patterns I like that are included like:
