I’ve had this December 2008 issue of Burda Magazine for a while. The pattern pages made me feel intimidated until this morning. After having a large cup of coffee and looking at the pattern pieces carefully, I went ahead and traced out one complete project. Now, I am not going to reveal which pattern I traced out of fear that the finished garment will not look anything like the sketch or the photo in the magazine. What I can tell you is that it is a dress; I should mention that this will be my first Burda sewing project. Let’s hope that the garment turns out to be wearable.
