june burda!

I was surprised to get this one so quick! Shannon had been whining about it, and shazam, it appeared! I really wasn't looking for it for another week at least. There are just a few things I think I'll try from this issue. (Mainly because I'm smack in the middle of weight-loss mode--11 pounds lost!--and I'd rather not fool with fitting issues right now!)

I love love love this top. It looks just like something you would see at anthropologie.

This tee was seriously MADE for me. Everything I love: V-neck, ruched center, puff sleeves. Must. Trace. Now.

and line drawing:
This tee is interesting too:

I don't need drawstring/pull on pants. Which means I'll probably make these first:
Ditto an a-line skirt...I already have a perfectly fitted a-line skirt, but I might steal the pocket treatment and cute tie/sash idea. Love this whole styling:

and....line drawing:And another inspirational photo (I may have shown this before, I love it!), this top is SO me. Summery colors, mix-matchy prints, easy style. Wish I could see more details! Anyone know the brand/maker/designer?

  2. 11 pounds? Wow!!! That's fantastic, Angie! Good job, and keep it up! I'm so proud of you!!!
