Knip Mode December

Little time for sewing this week, and when I wanted to do a little on Tuesday evening around 11 pm, the electricity supply failed in our part of town, just when I was doing some edgestitching. It was solved somewhere during the night, but no real sewing done any more, it’s been a very busy week.

I had seen Knip Mode december on Monday, wanted to buy it immediately, but even that didn’t work as planned, I only bought it today. This is a great issue again . It has patterns for the holiday season, these are more “down to earth” type than the Patrones issue I gave away. More reflecting the Dutch style in general (after all, it’s a Dutch magazine).

There are patterns for men too, as well as sleepwear, both of which I never sew, nice for those who do.

 

This is my favorite, if I had 2.5 meter of plain knit fabric I would make it right away. I only have a printed knit which is not so suitable. It’s high on my to sew list anyhow.

I lightened the picture a bit, and still you can’t see it very well. The line-drawing shows the lines better. The other dresses are nice as well.

The jacket in the next picture remembered me of the Burda jacket I made, it has a lot of similar features. The skirt is one of my other favorites from this issue, not sure about the style for me.

 

The sleepwear / lingerie section. Looks very nice, though I still don’t think I’ll make it.

 

 

For copyright reasons I don’t want to publish too many pictures, here’s a link to a preview Knip Mode publishes.

I'm really liking no 12 but is it a woven or a knit?

melissa said...

yes yes I totally agree, this issue is FANTASTIC! And I've got my sights on that dress this weekend - it's even better that it's got the illustrated instructions this month! :)

melissa said...

oh and arielle, #12 is for stretch wovens. That's my second favourite in this issue!!

Sigrid, that is a beautiful dress.

What a gorgeous dress! I'm looking forward to your version.

That dress is a great design. I also like the one to the right of it in the line drawings photo. Look forward to seeing your version!

#12 is fabulous!

Jali said...

All of them look nice. I think the dress you have chosen will look great on you.

The same dress is very high on my sewing list, I just loved it. The entire issue was pretty fantastic. Can't wait to see what you'll do with it.

Rosesred said...

Loved this issue as well, lots of classic and also more trendy patterns. That dress is fabulous, and it's definitely the next thing I'll sew.

Nice, and certainly more appealing and wearable than some of the stuff I've seen in Burda recently.

I've got to pick this one up! I love that knit dress.

Rosy said...

Go! Underwear and sleeping clothes of last photo are amazing! I love the pink camisole. And that dress is adorable! Very elegant!

I just received my issue today (in Australia). That black dress was one that stood out from the online preview, I might make it as a sleeveless version for our summer.
