BurdaStyle Magazine March Review


The BurdaStyle March issue was great! There were lots of pattens I would like to use out of it. Here is an overview of all of the patterns:


These are my favourites from this issue:


I love the cover dress!


These trousers are great for spring/summer


Also love this dress but not sure the ruffled top will suit me!


Always love a good pencil skirt pattern and this top is gorgeous!


Like this dress for the spring


Really like the biker style trouser pattern! Might make some up in denim.


Love this top for with trousers/jeans or a skirt


The top and pencil skirt made in matching lace – love it!


Love the dress and jacket! Might make a shorter version of the dress


The back of this dress is stunning!


Front view of the low back dress


Both these dresses are stunning!


Beautiful dress! Might also make in a shorter version

What do you think of the march issue?
