I've read several blogs where people totally love this new issue of Burda. Me - not so much. I do really love two of the designs, and that is just fine. (By the way, I mainly do these posts so I can keep track of which designs I like from which magazine. Then I can easily click on the BWOF tag and all the drawings come up with their corresponding months.)
This is blouse 125. WHAT a cute neckline!!! I'm not crazy about the sleeves, though, and am thinking about just making it sleeveless.
Blouse 129 is awesome. It's fitted with pockets and topstitching and other fun details. This is my kind of pattern! (Hopefully that collar has a collar stand. I'm currently feeling too lazy to go downstairs and check.)
Oh, and we did make it home safely today in one piece. Thanks for all your well wishes. It turned out to be 13.5 hours in the van - yuck! Allison C. wrote that she's amazed at us Americans that drive such long distances. We did this time because it was more economical than flying and having to rent a car, and we really didn't want to have to rely on Disney transportation. We also wanted to see some of the southern states we'd never before visited. However, I draw the line at driving more that two days to a destination, and always fly when I visit family in far away Oregon.
