BERNINA 'Party Through the Decades' Roundup

Eary_eras_blog_final_medium

We here at BurdaStyle were quite impressed not only by the sheer volume of diverse and high quality submissions received (over 150 from six different continents), but also with the level of enthusiasm and styling that went into each project. It was great seeing members get so creative and inspired, both from using vintage patterns and drafting original designs for a modern take on classic silhouettes. On that note, we’d like to highlight some party looks throughout the decades.
