Isn't that sweet? I'm sure he'd rather me talk him up during the trip, but knows how excited I get when the new issue arrives. I really am a lucky lady to have such a sweet and thoughtful guy...
This issue screams "Summertime!" and there are too many favorites to mention. I love the cover dress (117), dress 124 is so sweet with a vintage vibe, and and the other knit dress with the ruching (111c). The top version is also very cute (111b), as is top (114). The leather jacket (118) is a dream, while the kids summer pieces are adorable. I really think this issue is one of my all-time Burda favorites since I started subscribing (2 years ago). I wish I could link you to all these, but the new Burda website is totally making me frustrated. How do you say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" in German???
Meanwhile, I've been sewing odds and ends. 35 neck coolers for soldiers got done last Friday (tutorial coming), and my sister's swimsuit got altered, I'm nearly done with another knit border print dress for a secretary at school, and that leaves me the purple taffeta dress for the Queen of the Highlands and a tankini swimsuit for a co-worker. Oh, did I mention hosting a birthday party this week for Little Miss Princess and her pals? Yeah, my cup overfloweth...
Love to all,
