|FAIL. (And that's OK.)|
On an unrelated note, my Burda magazine showed up yesterday. You might not realize that I subscribe to Burda because I haven't been inspired to sew a single Burda design in 2010. So, now that my subscription is up, I think it's time for Burda and I to part ways. We've grown apart style-wise. I have no love for drop-crotch pants or weird drape-y sack-dresses. I live near the Gulf coast, and don't need to make coats. This latest issue did have a 1940s-inspired spread, but the blouse from that I liked wasn't offered in my size, which seems to be another Burda trend. I might pick up Ottobre again instead -- there's less pattern bang-for-buck, but they're usually nice patterns.
This little gem from the current Burda issue is worth sharing, though. It leaves me positively bemused. There's something disturbing about the way the kid's face is squished in there between the octopus eyes.
