Managed to get my hands on the latest copy of Dollybird yesterday. (^_^) I quite enjoy browsing these magazines. The sewing instruction are not so simple, I would say, but the photos are beautiful. I like that they have a theme for each volume and photo tutorials on shoes, bags making, embroidery etc.
Thought to make a synopsis on the volumes I have for those who might be interested. If you like the content of a particular volume, please consider purchasing the book. \(^_^)/
