The Jackie Dress: Member Style Inspiration


Last week we asked how you would style The Jackie Dress variation from our new book BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern. The BurdaStyle team styled their ideal Jackie Dress here and we chose three lucky members to win a copy of our new book. Check out our interpretations of their styles below!

The Jackie Dress: Style It Your Way!


We were so inspired by all the wonderful entries from our recent sewing competition that we’ve decided to give away three more copies of our new book. The BurdaStyle team has taken one of the variation projects from BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern, the 1960s Jackie Dress, and styled it three ways. (This dress is based on the 1920s Louisa Drop-Waist Dress master pattern, as shown here in an abstract silk charmeuse.)

Inspired Style: Vintage Modern Men's Projects


In addition to women’s projects, our new book BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern also features men’s styles, including an adaptable button-down shirt pattern which can be turned into two variations (or more if you’re up for it!). We chatted with David Leon Morgan, a BurdaStyle alum and contributing writer to the book, about creative inspiration and his take on how to style vintage modern.

The Making of a Drop-Waist Dress


If you follow BurdaStyle on Facebook, you may have seen my review of their new book BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern already. Jamie Lau, one of the book’s authors, actually wrote to ask me if I’d make a dress from her book before asking if I’d review the book itself.

Our new book, BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern hits bookstores next week. Five adaptable master patterns for tops, dresses, and pants are transformed into 19 different projects for women and men that draw inspiration from key fashion moments.
