Can I just say, Burda Style 07-2010... wow! Haven't come across that many nice patterns in one mag in ages! Really simple, pretty stuff, love it! Well, apart from the slightly questionable drapey harem pants... but hey, at least there's no "Safari Style". Now that's a trend that they flog hard. Anyway, here are the items I plan to create for the Colette Patterns Spring Palette Challenge Not all from scratch - the ruched skirt will probably be a recycled skirt with added fabric, and the shorts may be made from existing pants... sometimes there's already something you can get for a couple of dollars that will work as well, or better than buying new fabric and spending heaps of time sewing...
* Update 4/2/10: here's the first piece, the jacket!
