BurdaStyle 2/2013

I just received my February 2013 Issue of BurdaStyle in the mail, and there are so many patterns in this issue I can’t wait to make!! And, even better, most of them are rated easy! Hooray! Here’s a quick look at the patterns I’m loving (all images from the Feb. issue, copyright Burda):

I really love the contrasting neck and sleeve bands on this blouse. Perfect for the office!

This top is made with pre-pleated fabric, and inspires me to try out some of those funky fabrics I see but never know what to do with.

I really like this easy rated knit dress, but I’m not sure the flounce would work on my body type:

I LOVE this top, and bonus – there’s also a longer, dress length version with short sleeves:

This simple halter style dress will be perfect for a vacation in Mexico we’re planning later this year:

I love the gathered effect on this mock wrap skirt (I think this is a candidate for the Giorgio Armani wool I received in a recent mystery bundle):

There are a few other patterns as well – a knit top in short and long sleeve lengths, a couple more dresses that will be perfect for vacation. This issue is going to keep me busy for a good long while!
