There are some cute trapeze dresses in bright colours:
A lot of doubleknit dresses, like these ones in gold and ochre:
Dandy looks in velvet – I could go a green velvet suit…..
More dandy dresses with collars and cuffs…..
All the patterns are included for the embroidery designs too!
There are more bright colours in jersey knit, and some crochet berets:
Some knitwear designs – including twinsets of course!:
I don’t remember the Burda I grew up with having an English translation included, like this one does. My Aunt introduced us to them, and showed us how to navigate the patterns. As for instructions, I fumbled along inventing my own construction methods. In retrospect this is a good experience – you do learn quickly when you are thrown in the deep end!
So which designs are your favourites, and which ones would you actually wear today?
Which ones do you abhor and absolutely wouldn’t be seen dead in?
Also – which ones shall I make!?
