I’m pretty sure that at this point Burda Easy is just a bunch of reprints from their other pattern collections, but
1A, 1B, 1C – Ok, I’m sure I have this pattern elsewhere in my stash but I love this jacket! The fitting lines are great, and the in-seam pockets are awesome (as is the option for the hood). I always hate when my neck gets cold, so I love the high collar option too!
2A, 2B, 2C – I know I’ve got this top pattern in an older magazine, but I also really like this design. I think it looks great as both a top and a dress, and I like the added detail on the sleeves. Super cute!
3A, 3B, 3C – Can one ever have too many pencil skirt patterns? Ok, the answer is probably yes, but I do really like the options here. I’m much more partial to the longer versions, and I like view C with the lace detail at the hem. Again, pretty sure I’ve got this in the stash somewhere (or one nearly identical to it) but I really like it anyway.
4A, 4B, 4C – Ok, so this is a pretty simple dress/top pattern, but I do think it is cute. I especially like view B with the longer sleeves – I think it looks super cute on the model.
5A, 5B, 5C – This style of pant isn’t anything new for Burda; again I’m pretty sure I’ve got this in the back catalog stash somewhere. I do think they’ve done a nice job of styling though, and I think the option to do a stripe down the side of view B could be really cool.
6A, 6B, 6C – This sweater looks cozy. I’m not usually a fan of the slightly puffy sleeves, but for some reason I feel like they really work here. I also think the 3/4 sleeves on view A are kind of adorable.
And that’s it! Though I did want to mention to retro style/Burda lovers looking to redecorate a sewing room – it looks like
And that’s it! I think that while it’s a bit sad that we aren’t getting new patterns in the Burda Easy magazines anymore, the styling choices have been really cute lately – they are definitely working to sell me on these design styles. Plus, I’m finding it really interesting that I’ve got a Burda Easy shipped to me by Roltek – anyone else have this happen? I’m hoping my regular April issue still shows up as planned!
