Call for help re: Burda Back Issue

Hey fellow sewists, thought I'd put this out to you guys and see if anyone could help me out. I would really like to get ahold of the wrap top pattern from Burda January 2008, style 116. I've searched ebay, etsy and have an email to GLPnews, but so far, no luck. If anyone has a back issue that they are hoping to sell OR if anyone would be willing to trace the pattern and send it to me (with instructions, as poor as they are), I would be more than happy to pay for your time/trouble/postage or arrange some sort of a swap. Your call. :)

And why, might you ask, am I so determined to get ahold of this particular pattern? I stumbled upon two missoni-inspired sweater knits today at lunch and one of them is just begging to become a fitted little wrap sweater. Begging.

Anyways, any help you could provide here is much appreciated. Thanks all!


  1. I wish I had that magazine too, it is chalk full of fun designs. Sadly my subscription started in August of that year. I hope you find someone to help you out!

  2. I own it and you are welcome to borrow the pattern. I have even made up the pattern 116 (see my pattern review).

    My issue was purchased on ebay and I have used pattern 116 and 127 (jacket). It is a great issue and my copy looks sad and tired but well love !

    If you are interested, let me know. I can send you a copy of the pattern and I would highly recommend reading all pattern reviews for this top. Just leave me a message in your comments section or if you are a member of PR you can PM me and I can respond privately.


  3. I have that issue too and would be happy to trace the size(s) of your choice for you. Just let me know.

    Ok, I'm curious: are you going to make the "camisole" in a contrasting color?

  4. i can't help, but wanted to leave some comment love anyway :)
