New magazines

Thank you for your nice compliments on my top. I do plan to make pictures on me, but at the moment it’s too hot for that. Reading other blogs there is a lot of heat on the northern hemisphere. Not comfortable weather for sewing, so I’ll share some pictures of the latest pattern magazines I bought. I skipped June and July Burda. July had quite a few nice patterns, but not for my age or figure.

I bought the Patrones 293 issue from who started to sell the magazine. Don’t know whether they ship internationally, but it’s the first online shop here in the Netherlands offering it.

This is still a summer magazine, I don’t know whether I’ll be sewing anything soon, but quite a few inspirational pieces. My daughter saw also quite a few things she liked.

My daughter thought this was a dress for me, I had to look twice, but think she’s right, it would certainly be comfortable at a day like this.

Absolutely love this combination.DSC_0071 DSC_0072

Further I bought the August Knip mode. Less summer patterns, more fall patterns already.

And I especially like this top, of which they show 4 variations, nice to see the different looks of the same pattern.




  1. I really like your Patrones selections -- you have such a good eye for design!

  2. Thanks for posting the photos & line drawings. It's nice to see what is inside each edition. I don't like purchasing without knowing if I'll actually use it.

    Congrats on being today's featured member on PR too. Always nice to see a familar face. :)

  3. I absolutely LOVE the Knipmode wrap top pattern.

  4. That knipmode wrap top is to die for. And Patronenwinkel does ship within Europe. That's all I need.

  5. I love the Patrones, can't wait to get mine. But that grey jacket in Knip has the same shape lapels than the July Burda leather jacket does! I haven't read a single fashion magazine since January so I completely missed this trend, LOL!
    And I'm with the other, the Knip wrap top is just delicious.

  6. I really love that Knip Mode wrap top! Judging by the other comments, I think it is a popular style!

  7. Some gorgeous styles featured!


It's always nice to have feedback on what I'm posting about. All comments, also positive criticism, are always highly appreciated.
Leuk als je een berichtje schrijft, altijd leuk om te lezen, ook opbouwende kritiek!
