Look what came in my post–BurdaStyle June 2012

CYMERA_20120519_103542Yes, It showed up earlier that I expected. Normally it comes on or after the 20th of the month, but this month it was here on the 17th! Oh Aren’t I happy Smile?  It took me some time to get through it and take pictures of my favourites. You  know them times when you  know you need to do some things but you  just can’t bring yourself to do them? Not that you do not like doing them, but you  are not in the mood. That’s  how it took me until now to do this. Sorry!!!

This is the picture list of the patterns in this issue:


And this issues’ favourites are:

CYMERA_20120519_103733Me and Kalina are hoping to put together a sew along for this. )

CYMERA_20120519_103813Love the dress, but will be a big hassle to make the top. Until now i was not able to make  a dress in this style that covers my boobs properly. So this on is here only because I like it not because I am thinking of making it, not yet anyway.

CYMERA_20120519_103849CYMERA_20120519_103907    I would have the same problem with this one (even on the model it does not look right), but I think I might have a solution, so might make it on my sewing table (I also like the shorter version).

CYMERA_20120519_104004                     Lovely maxi skirt. Not in pink but lovely.


Should it be a dress or a top? I wonder! and wonder some more. It might depend to the fabric I already got.


There are other lovely garment I like. Will I make them? Well I do not know, maybe. The skirt will need to be scaled down to a size 38. If  it’s too much trouble then, forget it.

CYMERA_20120519_103923Great idea if you  want to  up-cycle your Ts.

CYMERA_20120519_103938And guess what, I’ve seen this before. Before it even appeared in the magazine. If you want to give it a go I sugets you follow the link on the picture below:

 I believe that Donatella’s tutorial from inspiration&realisation is much better than the one in BurdaStyle magazine. She’s got loads of tutorials that are great.

I don't really like talking about myself. But, I love sewing and after reading a lot of blogs on the internet about it, I've decided to give it a go as well. I am Romanian born, but live in the UK. I am a bit selfish when it comes to sewing. I tend to make stuff more for myself. Others have to go through a lot of torture in order for me to make something. My mum did it twice. Well I only wanted to make the dresses fit her perfectly. And in the end they looked great.
