Giveaway - BurdaStyle Plus S/S 2013

I collect my monthly copy of Burda magazine from a local bookstore that orders it in for me.  I got a call from them yesterday to tell me my new issue had arrived which I thought was unbelievably early given that the March previews have only just come out.

Excitedly (though I'm not sure why from the previews), I toddled off to the store only to find that it wasn't the March issue, but the Burda Plus Special for Spring/Summer 2013.  I'd rather they gave me extra issues than missed some out so I bought it anyway and to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New year of the snake, I would love to give it away to one of you!


There are some great patterns inside.  Of course this being Burda there are also a few WTFs, but on the whole this is a great issue to own.  All patterns are in sizes 44 to either 52 or 54 plus a couple of petites.  You can see all the included patterns if you scroll down this page; - Link to Burda Plus via Burda Russia.

The giveaway is open to anyone - just leave a comment on this post and I will draw a name at random on 13th Feb - this will be Hong Kong time so get your comments in the day before to save an exercise in maths and time zones!  Also, just to be clear despite the German image and Russian links, the giveaway copy is in English.

Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Plus sizes Yes that would be a great win, if Im lucky enough. I used to buy Burda years ago, I find the pattern tracing taxing though, very good value though.

I'd love to get my hands on this. I'm a Burda 42-44 , so the plus version is probably where I should be.

Can you tell me where you get the Burda Style magazine in Hong Kong? Maybe you can tell me how much per issue too?

Many thanks!
