You know I love Burda Magazines, right? Imagine my delight when I discovered a 1961 issue on Swedish ebay! I knew I just had to have it, and to my surprise, nobody else was bidding on it, so I won it! Yay! Not only did I win that lovely issue, I won another pattern magazine, a Finnish mag called Beyers, from 1956. Oh the joy!
Both magazines are complete with instructions and pattern sheets, and I can only begin to imagine all the wonderful things I can make from these. I´ve taken some pictures so you can enjoy some lovely mid-century fashion as well!

Oh, and to Sicilians, Scandinavians and others who celebrate it, I hope you had a good St.Lucy celebration today!
