New retro envelop patterns from Burda
Back in october I wrote about the Burda retro patterns. The new retro patterns from the 2013 spring collection are all in 60's style.
The 60's are not my favorite fashion period. With a broad upper back and a swayback the shapeless dresses with no darts gain some kind of pregnancy charm which I'd rather like to avoid. I still love the two patterns above, especially with the addition of a jacket and a cape which are shaped with shoulder darts, something I miss on the modern patterns. Since these patterns aren't expensive they are on my list to buy. (It's a pity the dress pattern with the jacket starts at size 12)
