Yup. I am now officially one of THOSE people. Not that I expect I will be steppin' out in any handmade outfits anytime soon, but my pattern stash just increased EXPONENTIALLY.
Ok, so it is insane to get one of these in the mail, while it is fabulous, it is also a bit crushing, knowing that even if you quit your job and stopped eating and speaking you would only ever be able to finish 1/2 of these patterns before the next issue comes. But, whatever.
I have to say, as excited as I was, I was TERRIFIED when I opened it up to this page. You see what I'm saying here? Should blue floral capri pants exist? No, Burda WOF, they should not. Also, the women who are whipping these up seem to have a real affinity for leopard print that I do not share. Anyway, after getting through the initial shock of seeing the scary flat version of the clothes, I was VERY pleasantly surprised by the photography and fashion "story" format of the magazine. How AWESOME is that lace jacket? So awesome. And maybe when I wear it I will look like an intense German model, right? There are several of these patterns I will Definitely (cough) think about making. And, then, six months later, actually make. If the stars are aligned, and the moon is in retrograde. Promise.
