The Magazine Actually Worth a Fiver

Have you picked up the June issue of Burda Style magazine? If not go get it! I got mine today, and it is packed FULL of stylish patterns that are perfect for summer. My must have? #116 shorts in silk duchesse satin..I'm already looking for fabric! (I did some major stash-bustin' today so I don't feel as bad about buying new fabric ;) ) and I think #110 (with some adjustments) is going to be perfect for my couture flower/zebra print silk chiffon!

#116 Shorts


  1. I can't wait to see your version of the shorts. I bet they can be very cute!

  2. Hi! Thanks for the comment, wish you lots of fun stitching in preparation for SSS. But don't make yourself crazy over it, you'll be surprised how only a few self-stitched garments can be matched into different outfits. I don't want you to burn yourself out! When I move back to UK I will be in Brighton, firmly down south! So sadly I will be of no use to you in terms of sewing groups. Though I did read today that Emily of one good apple (I think her blog's url is emilyknits) is moving from Liverpool to Leeds very soon, maybe she would be interested if there isn't an existing Burda group in your area? All the best! x
