Yesterday I found my first issue of Knipmode in the mailbox. It was an impulsive decision to get a subscription, because I haven’t been interested enough to buy it in the shop for the past few years. But lately I’ve found myself wanting to sew but not go through the whole ordeal of drafting things myself and the back issues I have are just not that shiny anymore. So there it is, a year’s subscription to Knipmode. I’ve sort of set myself the challenge to make at least one thing from each issue, hopefully before the next one arrives, but with all the (sewing) homework and secret projects I’m not sure how reasonable that is. Anyway, this first issue makes me happy I got the subscription, because there’s quite a few things I’d like to make!
The issue has “Style Icons” as a theme, and features clothing inspired by Kate Moss, Brigitte Bardot, Jackie Kennedy, Coco Chanel, Caro Emerald and almost-queen Máxima. It also has an extra mini-magazine with easy “holiday fashions”, but I didn’t photograph a single one of them because they’re basically all variations on bags with or without belts. There’s one pair of trousers that could make nice pajama pants, I guess.
Anyway, I’m quite happy with this issue and I hope that the coming 11 will be just as nice. Here’s my selection from this issue, as you had probably guessed my picks come mainly from the Bardot/Kennedy/Chanel sections!
