Dress Making and Apricot Crumble Cake

I have been working on an overlap skirt from last month's Burda Magazine in some lovely dark navy corduroy this weekend. I am nearly there but need to do a few adjustments before I pull it all together. This skirt will be for November's Le Challenge whose theme is Stripes, so all will be revealed on 14 November 2013.

There is nothing like a warm piece of cake, when you are feeling frustrated with your sewing! I whipped up this Apricot Crumble Cake quite quickly, and it has a delicious cinnamon crumble topping. We have been eating it cold, but I think it would be delicious warm with custard or cream (or both!).

  1. Can you still buy Burda magazine in England?

    1. Yes I found a copy in WHSmiths in Taunton. I thought it was expensive but worth it for all the patterns.

    2. I used to buy Anna - published by Burda next time I'm in Taunton I'll have a look I have some german Burda's from the 80's
      Just about to make the Apricot Crumble cake with Apples!
