Patrones Extra 268
The best summer issue they’ve ever* done. Back from the day when they used to have a sh*tload more patterns than they do now, and everything was labelled with the name of the designer/ brand.
Stand out patterns in this magazine:
Top No. 2 (easy to make), dress 8 (looks awesome and fairly easy to make but looks like its made for Amazonas <read tall women> so I might leave it).
Dress 16 (I made it- the fit is pretty loose and seems to make me look shorter than I am-more on that later) Top 23 (the cover)
Dress 32 (check out the line diagram-this could be a real go-to pattern for a tunic/dress- if you like it and don’t have this magazine go here (its close enough and their sleeve treament might actually make it easier than the Mango version-remember the latter is for stretch/knit fabric version though). I haven’t used any of the StyleArc patterns but they seem to be doing the rounds on various sewing blogs).
Dress 39 (I’d make it without all the trims..) Coat dress 41 (spectacular but looks like to much trouble to make- i.e. grading then tracing then…). If you were looking to browse the magazine before bidding for it on ebay, then I hope this has helped. Just hope your bidding enemies haven’t seen it too.
This magazine has also been reviewed here.
*Based on what I’ve seen thus far.
