As creator of the Vintage-Inspired Modern Style Design Challenge, I have been thrilled with the participation and feedback from the BurdaStyle community!
From my guest blogs about Mary Brooks Picken, Singer, and Coats & Clark, to the craftsmanship seen throughout the Challenge entries, it is clear that vintage style is a vibrant source of inspiration for modern sewing enthusiasts. Thanks to all who participated for sharing your own vintage-inspired modern style/ I hope you were also inspired by each others creativity.
