FEMALE Magazine – Winter 2013

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?

This magazine is available at sew tokyo.

    Thanks for this post. This great magazine is not available in my city (Montréal) and the styling is so inspiring. I love the simplicity of the pieces and the clever way they put them together. The little grey shirt with a bow is exquisite. I’d do it in a soft light grey flannel.

      you are welcome, I am happy you like the magazine:) I have never been but I heard Montreal is a very beautiful city.

      I love the shirt with bow too – you are right, soft lightweight grey flannel would make a lovely version!

    The key item light brown mini circle skirt is totally my cup of tea. I could probably draft it if I thought carefully! I do enjoy your posts about this magazine.
