BurdaStyle has become a favourite of mine for patterns that fit beautifully. You can see all about BurdaStyle on the blog over here.
These are some of the projects I have completed.
SPLIT SLEEVE TOP
This top was nice and easy to make. Its made up of two pieces being front and back and bias binding for the back split and the neck edge which ties up.
I used Rayon so that it would drape beautifully.
This pattern is available to make in class – You will need approximately twice your length in fabric so go with 1.5metres.
This cardigan was easy to make because I used a Ponte fabric. Ponte doesn’t fray so I could make this without having to finish of the edges. I ran a sewing line along the neckline just to hold it in place to prevent it from stretching too much.
This cardi has proven to be popular in class and has been made in lovely fabrics.
This pattern is available to make in class – You will need 1.9 metres of 160cm wide fabric. Best choice in fabric is one that has two good sides. Use Ponte or any heavy stretch fabric.
HIGH NECK BLOUSE
I love love love this blouse. I feel its one that particularly suits me. I want to make more!
The pattern comes as a long sleeve, there is a seam that runs along the shoulder which Im not that keen on as it sticks out a little bit. You really need someone to pin it to the shape of your shoulder. The sleeveless version needs a facing or you could do a bias binding and have it tucked into the top. The back has a small split and I close it with a large hook and eye.
Rayon was my choice in fabric for all of these, Im sure you can tell I love the drape of Rayon.
This is another project that has been popular in class. Juliana has made one with a light stretch fabric that also drapes beautifully. Both Juliana and Sophie made it into a sleeveless dress which looks lovely too.
I have this pattern available in class – you will need 1.6metres of fabric 140cm wide for the long sleeved version, all sizes. Should your fabric be less in width you would need 2.5metres. Sleeveless version you’ll need 1metre for small sizes and 1.6metres for larger sizes.
Off to make some more!!
