I'm going to open up this conversation again since I have a similar question.

I'll be starting graduate school this fall at UT & am wanting to know what a good neighborhood would be for a craftster. I'm considering Hyde Park since it's close to campus and I read somewhere that it's "neighborhoody" which sounds nice. I also think there's a Hancock nearby for emergency thread runs (I mostly sew, but also knit, embroider, make jewelry, etc when the motivation hits).

Am I on the right track? I will be renting, of course. Also, are the buses pretty efficient in Austin? From the way it looks on the map, the city seems pretty walkable (but maps are always small, haha). I'll be visiting in March, so it would be nice to have some suggestions on what areas to look at.

Thanks for any responses!

I'll be in Stockholm this September, so I thought I'd try to re-start this conversation. Any tips on good fabric/yarn shops?

You are a genius.

PS -- It's not working because you used the wrong link.

You are a genius! I haven't posted on Craftster in awhile, things change I guess.
Thanks a bunch for the comments, it's a slow day at work, so it helps.
I almost used fabric-covered buttons on the front, but I saw these guys and thought it might make the skirt a little more interesting.

I jumped on the bandwagon, too. It seems like everyone has a high-waist skirt now.
Burda 7741
My roommate took the model-pose picture of me. Also notice my almost-ripe tomatoes in front of me (I've never been able to keep a plant alive long enough for it to bear fruit)
Anyway, this pattern has an amazingly hideous skirt pattern with a "bib", but also this lovely item. It was pretty easy to make, I'm still not an expert on making even pleats, but it turned out good in the end I think. I got the fabric on the clearance rack at Joann. I always seem to find the cuter fabric on clearance at Joann, the regular-priced stuff there can be so ugly I want to cry.
I'd love to know what you think!

Bramaking! How cool.
Thanks for the number, I will look into it. I love your site, btw.

Ebay & Amazon were not as helpful as I thought they would be.

And Stacy, I think I would like that phone number, just in case. It's probably a good thing that past issues are not so readily available. I have enough patterns already.

Hi everyone
Do any of you know how to order the archived Burda magazines? They list them all on burdamode.com, but I can't find a way to order past issues.
I also tried asking the shop where I purchase them, but they don't know how to get the old ones, either.
