Patrones 316 (May 2012)
I joined Kollabora the other day, how about you? I think I’m a little slow because I received an email about it ages ago (I think it is somehow connected to BurdaStyle) but because my email wasn’t sure about it the spam deciding powers-that-be threw it into spam but I found it eventually. I’m a bit miffed at BurdaStyle right now and to be honest I’m visiting it less and less and hanging out on Sew Weekly instead (which will be infinitely more exciting when I am actually sewing!) so I am keen for a new fresh site to share and be inspired by.
I’m not really sure what Kollabora is yet apart from being a kind of Pinterest-esque sewing/jewellery/knitting craft site but it looks pretty cool. I have no idea how to do things to my profile that other people have done but again I am guessing it will get more interesting when I actually have new sewing to share.
Anyway, if you are new too and looking for friends then this is me I’ll have some sewing up eventually…
Ok, Patrones 316: I’m not going to use many words in this post, mostly because I’m just not feeling this issue. I also appear to have missed the previous issue #315, but magazines have arrived out of order before and I don’t think I’ve seen anyone else post it yet, so no stress. I’ll admit I am wondering whether I should renew my subscription, I am considering swapping it back for La Mia Boutique but we’ll see.
I do kind of like these shorts above and the pants below, they look comfy.
The white top above is cute. Wow that skirt is way short and check out those shoes! The pink shorts are interesting but a bit puffy.
Below we have a whole spread devoted to jumpsuits/playsuits/overalls/onsies/rompers/[insert your preferred term here]. I’ve ruled out the first, third and fourth one immediately due to their extra hip and thigh width appendages. Personally my hips/thighs don’t need any extra help, thanks Patrones The pink looks like it is two different sizes top and bottom and also has unfortunate draping going on in the inner thigh area. Hrmm…
From the plus section this skirt and top combo is nice.
I do like this skirt in the girls section, cute pleats and bonus points for pockets that become belt loops.
Next month is Holiday Special with comfortable and light weight shorts, blouses and dresses and ”don’t forget the floral pattens and animal prints”. Ok
