August Giveaway

Continuing my sewing room clear out...these are the last two Burdas that realistically I will not make anything from. Either they repeat patterns I already have (hello, wrap tops!), or I can't see myself wearing the styles in my everyday life.

First up, Burdastyle 1/2012

It has a good mixture of styles including some pretty underpinnings and amazing fancy dress patterns including a raspberry! I know it's unlikely someone will actually be wishing for a pattern to make their child look like a raspberry, but you never know.


Second, Burdastyle 11/2012

This one has some classics like a trench coat and tapered trousers in, as well as some jersey loungewear.


I apologise for the quality of the photos - I snap these posts really quickly, hopefully they are enough to give a rough idea of whether there might be styles of interest to you in them. Also for reasons of time pressure I don't go into a lot of detail on style, but those of you familiar with Burda will  know it's always an interesting mix.

Usual rules apply - first come, first served and shipped at my earliest opportunity! MOST IMPORTANT: leave some contact details!!

Happy sewing, 'til next time!


  1. Ooh, you are generous! May I put up my hand for the second one please? Burda style 11/2012. csmith(dot)australia(at)gmail(dot)com

  2. Generous indeed! I have heard of these magazines but have never actually seen one! But would love to! The first one luckily was my first pick! BUT I totally understand if you didn't want to ship to Canada. prettygirlbymargo(at)gmail(dot)com

  3. That is really so sweetly generous of you, dear Philippa. Not being a sewer myself, I wouldn't have a use (besides the enjoyment of just looking at the lovely images and fashions contained within) for them myself, but just wanted to say how thoughtfully nice it is of you to pass them along to other fellow sewers. You're such a sweetheart!
