I have a confession to make: when I started working for BurdaStyle.com I did not know how to sew. My fashion, social media and public relations background is what got me hired and thankfully sewing knowledge was not a requirement for my position. However, once I began working and learning all the fashionable sewing patterns BurdaStyle has to offer along with seeing constant inspiration on our Projects page, I was ready to sew. I bought my first sewing machine, made a trip to the fabric store (so fun!) and then sat down with our Introduction to Sewing course!
