Getting My Eye In
Some of my most successful sewing projects have been made with Burda Style patterns. But it's quite a while since I used a Burda magazine. It seems impossible that you can isolate one pattern piece when there are a myriad printed on top of each other. But once your eye locks onto a particular line, it jumps out at you and tracing it is not that difficult.
I have also had some failures with Burda patterns, usually due to choosing the wrong size or the wrong fabric. I hope I have it right this time.
