I know how Alexander the Great must have felt. I conquered Burda Style Magazine patterns and now I'm asking myself, "What next?" For me, Burda Style Magazine patterns were the most difficult patterns out there. I was determined to conquer the vague, poorly translated instructions and lack of illustrations. My plan of attack was to adopt an "All Burda – All The Time" assault. I rarely sewed patterns from other companies.
There is a downside to my re-acceptance of McVoguerick patterns. Now, there is the chance that I will begin buying patterns that I never get around to sewing. I might begin stalking Jo-Ann's pattern sales. I was just beginning to have a pattern stash when I launched my attack on Burda. As a matter of fact, avoiding a huge pattern stash was one of the reasons I went "All Burda". I still love Burda Style Magazine patterns, first and foremost. Now that I've conquered them, I feel free to use a wider variety of patterns. Maybe the next world I try to conquer will be Marfy Patterns!
