Meg's Magazine Mash Up: July Issue


As I looked back through my previous mash-up posts this year, I realized I have not made a pair of shorts for myself! And I found myself really embracing shorts this summer too (I usually never wear them). I looked through all the July patterns and didn’t find a shorts pattern that I really wanted to sew. I really took a liking to the Concrete Jungle collection and I loved the simplicity of the Baggy Pants. I didn’t want to make pants…so I turned them into cuffed little shorts!

Meg's Magazine Mash Up: June Issue


Hey BurdaStylers! I am pretty excited about my June magazine mash-up, as one of my favorite burda style magazine collections ever debuted in this issue. Yes I am talking about the Surfer Girl pattern collection…pretty sure by the end of of the summer I am going to make ALL these patterns. On top of that, I received some fabulous and fun printed fabric from Spoonflower. Check out what I have created this month and how. This project took me one evening from start to finish, so you can make this dress tonight if you want!

Meg's Magazine Mash Up: May Issue


Hello! Yes it is time for my May burda style magazine mash-up already, and I am really excited about my new garment! Over the last month I have gotten so much wear out of my spandex bustier that I made last month. The May 2013 had some goodies but I was in mood for making and wearing a dress this month, so that is why I picked a dress pattern from the Bright Whites pattern collection. I also wanted to see what a dress from this collection would look not in boring white! To make it for myself, I needed to mash it up with spandex and bright green…obviously.

Meg's Magazine Mash Up: April Issue


Finally the warmer weather is rolling around here in New York, and I am certainly enjoying it! Looking back at my other Mash Ups I noticed that I have made a dress, pants, and skirt. So it just seemed right to make a top from this issue, which is perfect because as soon as I saw this Bodice Top sewing pattern from the April 2013 issue of burda style magazine I knew I wanted to make it.

Meg's Magazine Mash Up: March Issue


Springtime is within reach, and another cool month goes by here in NYC. For this month’s mash up I wanted a quick and easy sewing project that I could wear now and get use out of in the summer. The March 2013 issue of burda style magazine was filled with bright fabrics and lovely designs. Check out what pattern I chose to sew up this month!

Meg's Magazine Mash Up: February Issue


Well here we are again, another month in 2013 has gone by and for me it results in an awesome new pair of pants! As mentioned in my January Mash Up, I am sewing a pattern each month from the latest issue of burda style magazine. Check out what I got up to this month!

Meg's Magazine Mash Up: January Issue


Let me formally introduce myself. I’m Meg Healy, one of the Editorial and E-commerce managers here at, or you may know me as the girl who posts a lot of green and spandex projects. Is there anyone else out there who made a resolution to sew more this year? Well I did, and this year I am challenging myself to sew a pattern every month from the latest issue of burda style magazine. But of course I am going to put my own spin on the pattern. So I have decided to document my year of sewing through these magazine mash up posts and share with you my entire process with you. Hope you enjoy, get inspired, and join me!
