    nouvellegamine commented on the article Rose Hip: 8 Plus Size Designs

    I don’t know what a UK size 10 is. I’m a Burdastyle 38, and with the 44 (where the cascade jacket starts) there’s a difference of 4.75". So I need to subtract approximately (rounding up) 1.19" from…

    This is one of my favorite collections ever. It’s so pretty. The pants, blouse, & skirt have similar patterns in Misses sizes, but I’d love to see Wrap Tunic Dress and especially the Cascade Jersey…

    nouvellegamine commented on the article Celebrity Style Inspiration: Kim Kardashian

    Really? She’s very good looking but not really stylish, even accounting for differences in taste.

    But maybe it’s just that we have different ideas of what style is. Here are some women I think ar…

    nouvellegamine commented on the forum topic free patterns

    If it was a commercial site like the German or Russian sites, then I could deal with it, but almost everything here is done so half heartedly (except for Meg’s posts). It’s just super generic.
    It’…

    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…

    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.

    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…

    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…
