    nouvellegamine commented on the article BurdaStyle Magazine Subscriptions

    I’ve always used the British import. There are 2 things that about it that drive some people crazy. 1. All the patterns are on 2 sheets. They’re color coded, but they overlap. I don’t mind bc I use…

    I’m in the San Francisco area so I get mine from a magazine shop called, “Issues” in Oakland. Sometimes I’ll order a subscription from GLPnews. They have 3 month, 6 month, & 12 month options. I’ve…

    nouvellegamine commented on the article Ticket to Athens: 9 New Designs

    yay! Autumn always ushers in the good patterns (for me). The Shift Dress would be a cute jumper with a long sleeve blouse underneath. I loved the Seamed Dress in the last collection. It looks good …

    congratulations! I’m pregnant too & I’m totally missing my waist :D sigh.

    I’ve usually seen hi tech jersey advertised as jersey that is great for activewear. It has the ability to wick away moist…

    Unfortunately, the “speshul snowflake” syndrome on Burda got out of hand a long time ago. I just realize that most of summer is going to be a wash for me & not bother to comment. Luckily I have 3 o…

    my in-laws all prefer boxy. They have long thin legs & short thick middles. Close fitting or clothing with a defined waist is anathema to them. I’m the exact opposite. Boxy looks like crap on me. D…

    nouvellegamine commented on the article First Blush: 7 Soft Patterns

    Love the blouse with frills. This issue also had a version with no frills that looked totally different (love that). The slip dress is so pretty. The tunic with frills is lovely. I should try to kn…

    not loving the shorts under skirts, but everything else is gorgeous. It reminds me of Jackie Kennedy’s White House wardrobe. I love the way the fabric is slightly stiff and holds itself away from t…

    So, this was such a great collection. I have the original magazine & it has so many options for great summer stuff. I really love the last dress with the little capelet. I even love the straight bl…

    I really love that Burda will release a few different takes on popular trends. I wasn’t on board the peplum train, but eventually you created a pattern that worked for my body shape. This is my fav…

    Usually Burda only does one maternity collection a year, which is kind of a drag. I’ve been collecting the magazines since 2008 & if you’d like I could take a quick look through & tell you which is…
