Nothing beats a Burda

For some time now I’ve wanted to sew in linen, but the pieces I’ve got in my stash aren’t really large enough to make something from. I decided to use the purple/blue that I  once made a dress from, and combine it with a white tablecloth that I bought in a second hand store some time ago. It has coffee stains that don’t go away when I wash it, but I like how it’s woven in a checkered pattern.

I’ll use dress 108 from Burda 2/2001, the first Burda I ever bought, and this dress is a favorite I’ve made several times. The Burda magazine brings back memories of my my mom buying it when I was a child.

Since the magazine is 14 years old, it’s probably very outdated, but I don’t worry much about what’s in, I make my own style.

Patches

Can’t decide if I like these patches or not, but I’ve LOVED these jeans. And they’ve been in my to-do box for a few years now waiting to be fixed, so it’s worth a try

Here comes the bride

Well not really, just her dress. She wanted a light hippie dress, and showed me some photos of a dress she’d seen online. This one as opposed to the photo is all silk, which has been a dream to work with, It’s a silk duchesse with a silk chiffon on top and with lace sleeves.The chiffon dress is wider than the duchesse one underneath to give flow and width without being bulky.

I’m really happy with it and the bride seemed to be too.
