The moment I have seen this Burda Retro Wrap Top I wanted to make it. It has so interesting front finishing! Don’t you love it?

I only have to find proper fabric –Façonné – with two “good“ sides and body to drape.
First I will check my fabric stash.

Burda Style Zelfmaakmode Stap voor Stap

Few weeks ago while waiting in a line in a shop I was looking at the sewing/crafting magazines and I then I have spotted something completely new – Burda Style – Zelfmaakmode Stap voor Stap (which you may freely translate as Sew It Yourself Step by Step).

In 4 separate issues different basic sewing techniques will be (are) described and explained – step by step, including clear pictures and drawings. It is a great help for those who would like to start sewing (crafting) or already sewing but have some issues and/or questions. Excellent sewing knowledge resource.
I would say that it should be in every beginners sewing library. It is affordable and contains all necessary information to finish a garment.
Above all It is presented in a very attractive way, catching and wanting to read.

Burda retro pattern follow up…

As I am almost finished with my jacket and I am slowly preparing patterns for new garments.

I have bought this Burda retro dress pattern and I have found in my fabric stash a black fabric – perfect for my Little Black Dress! I think I have still somewhere enough lining – hmmm maybe I will use red colour?

I have never cut the patterns out but copy it using transparent pattern paper.


I took my basic patterns of bodies and skirt and check what kind of adjustments I should make.


As expected I needed to shorten the bodies 3 cm.


The same I have done with skirt. I had to shorten it but at the same time longer as I want to have a straight (pencil) skirt.


I will be a lot away in November for my work so I am not so sure when I start to work on this dress. I have joined the Pattern Review Sewing Contest – The LBD contest so I hope this will keep me going on. I will start on 1st November – so very soon – I am very excited about this!

Burda retro pattern

I know I have promised to keep away from patterns, however … the moment I came across this retro patterns from Burda I was not able to say ‘no’.

This simple dress was on my mind for a very long time. I was looking for the patter for years – or similar one so I could modify it. I started to construct a pattern so I could make this dress.

And suddenly here it is… I did not hesitate for a long. Now I have to find nice fabric and time/energy to make it.Burda style dress

Burda Classic’s

Burda Classic's coverWell… I have seen the announcement of a new Burda Classic’s and I was intrigued by its cover.

So I have immediately have bought it – and I am not disappointed.

I like very much included patterns …

I have already had jackets as on the cover, as well as a pattern for Chanel- like jacket, but still there is this white wrap blouse which I am going to make.
