A Year of Meg's Mash Ups in Review, and Bundled Together for you!

Pattern_image_medium

It has been a long year, and I have completed 10 mash ups… well almost 10. I am working on my wrap dress with sash as we speak! My goal was 12 (in 2015 I won’t stop until I do 12) but I still think 10 is great, and I wanted to compile the BurdaStyle sewing patterns I used for my 2014 mash ups for you so you can go back and look at my sewing tutorials posts and sew along. For a limited time you can purchase all 10 sewing patterns here in a bundle! Read more to see my favorite mash ups from the year and also some awesome member variations.

Meg's Magazine Mash Up 2014: Cape Pattern Reveal

What inspired me to pick our Cape with Hood pattern for my next mash up for you to sew along with, was our Bundle Up Sale (and the fact that I have no cool jackets to wear this season)! We have marked down 30 jacket and coat patterns until Oct 31st including the Cape with Hood which I will be documenting my progress on each week as part of my latest Mash Up.

Hi BurdaStylers! Another month another mash up, but this time around I am doing things a little different so you guys can follow along and sew with me. Each week I am going to be posting my progress of each step so you’ll have time to do the same if you want or just observe. This month I decided to start making our Split Neck Peplum Top from our College Prep pattern collection.

Meg's Magazine Mash Up 2014: Zipper Neck Dress

Main_medium

Hi BurdaStylers, this mash up is one I have been wanting to do for a while and the end result is a dress totally my style (green and spandex!) and suitable for a night out on the town. I am proud of myself I must say, because this dress is all made up from scrap fabric even though I am still a bit sad that I used up the last of my fish scale spandex. Check out how I altered the paper pattern to have no waist seam and longer seams, and see how other BurdaStyle.com members made this Zipper Neck Dress their own.

Pattern Reveal: July Issue

Concept_board_medium

Concept boards are a great place to explore design and fabric ideas for your garment, so you can narrow done construction details, design ideas, and styling. I like to do a concept board after my moodboard to give me a better direction of what I want my final design to look like. The moodboard is more about inspiration and the concept board is about getting down to those design ideas getting you closer to the finished garment.

Finally made these shorts! I could have not asked for a better result, and the fit is perfectly loose. A while back I revealed which pattern I was making so you guys could follow along and make your own mash up. Check out how I made my shorts as well as see some other member variations of the shorts pattern.

Athletic Inspired Fashion: Moodboard

Untitled-1_medium

A couple weeks ago I published which pattern I was going to sew for my next Meg’s Magazine Mash Up. For each Mash Up I usually prepare an inspiration board otherwise known as a moodbard. It helps me brainstorm and gain insight into the style of my garment I am preparing on making. Moodboards really help me focus in and compile inspirational images together that aid my new garment design. Check out our new Moodboard course so you can create your own!
