Online Shopping and New tools!

My wonderful husband bought me an issue of Burda Style Plus last winter. I’m not sure if it was for Christmas or Valentine’s Day, but it was sometime last winter. Its only put out twice a year, and it was a pain to get. But they have several pair of pants and a jacket I’ve wanted to make.

The thing about Burda though, is that you have to trace off the patterns.

Surprise surprise, so far, I’ve yet to make a single thing from the issue.

The only transfer paper I can find locally at a craft store is in little half sheets of paper. WAY too small to copy a plus size pattern. Next semester I’ll need some nice business casual clothing to wear once a week in professional setting, and there are some clothes in this magazine I have my eye on. I googled something like “large tracing paper” (I’m not gonna lie, I don’t really remember what I googled.) I happened upon this site and ordered some giant 2 feet x 16 feet transfer paper!

Then I was on amazon.com and bought some of this 36 in x 100 ft roll of brown craft paper!

ANNND ….. BURDA PLUS STYLE! As I remember, when Husband bought it last year, he ordered it on ebay, and it was shipped from overseas and cost more than this two episode subscription. So if this works as planned, I should get two issues of Burda Plus in the mail this year. Woot!

I’m so excited! As soon as I get them in the mail I’m sure I will post about it!
