Burda Style Mag 5/2012 Project Picks

I have an upcoming exam this week so all my free time has been consumed by preparing for it. Thus, I haven’t been able to do much sewing lately. 😦  Additionally, I have final exams in 2 weeks and a comprehensive masters exam in 4 weeks that involves taking a 4 hour exam covering all my core theory courses. Ugh! As a result, progress on my sewing projects will be slow as I try to spare a few minutes to do little bits of my work-in-process garments.

As a break from studies, I flipped though my freshly delivered Burda Style 5/2012 magazine and picked out some potential future projects.

I love this pencil skirt with side pleats. I also love this print but it might be too busy to see the skirt detail.

This lace skirt is also cute. It has a front zipper fly and pockets.

This top is simple but I love the idea that it can be whipped up in an afternoon.

This 2- piece dress is pretty. It looks like 2 separate pieces but it is somehow connected along the bateau neckline. I’ll have to check out the line-drawings.

I love this vintage design.

Interesting color blocked dress.

Maybe I’ll trace some of these this summer, when I have some free time??

    I picked up my copy of this yesterday, for a change there are quite a few patterns I want to make, and daughter no 2 has dog-eared some too… That first skirt will look great on her, and the plus size patterns are cool this time too!

    I can’t wait to get my hands on the May issue. It looks fabulous. Unfortunately it takes three months to hit the Australian news stands. I really must look into a subscription.
