The winter issue of FEMALE magazine is out, yay!! Not that I need any more patterns, but it is hard to resist buying this magazine – as always, I love the styling and the magazine always has something I want to make. I really need to speed up in my sewing!!
Anyway, let’s take a look!
Just as in the last issue, the main feature is the key trends for the upcoming season.
It is almost as if the editors of this magazine knew I wanted a simple classic jacket and a cute jumper…
and these wool pants! For some reason I really want to make some men style pants with tucks in grey wool suiting, and this pattern looks perfect!
Some separates you can make as a set – personally I love the peplum set especially in the fabric used in the magazine, and I think the 15-16 top and short set is also cute.
I also love this shirt. I know… it’s just a shirt with a bow – but it’s so cute, I love it! Especially with the tartan skirt.
This mini-flared skirt and dress are also useful to have. I am usually for straight mini-skirts but this year I love this flared silhouette- in fact I have a flared mini-skirt in the pipeline!
These chino pants look cool as well!
Coat patterns and jacket patterns:
I really like the simple coat on the left hand side. It looks so timeless and elegant.
Look at these dresses! So pretty! I especially like the one on the right hand side. #63 also looks very cute – if you look closely you can see the fabric is a cat face print!
There is more, but let’s end off with some accessories:
I have been dreaming about making such a clutch for awhile!! Hope I will get around to it now that I have a pattern:)
I can’t wait until the weekend to finish off my current project so I can get closer to making those cool wool pants in this magazine. Are there any items you especially like in this issue?
