Dress style #6 has very unusual sleeves that I might use for a different style. Pants #15 look quite comfortable and top #14 features cowl neckline that I want to try. I also like the sleeves finish on dress #12 and most likely will be making a hooded jacket #30.

New sewing magazine subscribtion
I've been subscribed to BurdaStyle magazine for years. In the past year, I find myseft more and more often refering to the old issues, while 2011 folder stays almost untouched. I say 'almost' because I did trace few patterns from 2011 issues and even made one. That's about it.
So after browsing around, I asked my Mom to send me few issues of Russian sewing magazine Shick (abbreviation from Russian `Sewing And Style`). They have licences to reprint selected issues of Italian La Mia Boutique magazine, Argentinian Look and most recent addition - Spanish Patrones! I love all La Mia Boutique styles and even more exited to see the Patrones based issue. The best part is the sewing instructions are in Russian! Since I didn't want to bother my Mom every time I want the magazine, I decided to subscribe to it through German company that deals with Russian media subscribtions and delivers them around the globe www.nasha-pressa.de - 6 months to try it out.
Here`s what I got last week in my mailbox:
August issue is based on March issue of La Mia Boutique. Here're the technical drawings:
