It was really hard to decide on a pattern to Mash Up from the 04/2018 issue since there were so many great patterns – and we also just launched our April 2018 Lookbook so you can shop ALL the patterns from the latest issue. After flipping through the magazine going back and fourth between possible Mash Up patterns, I went with our Ruffled Collared Dress since I already had the perfect fabric, and it is petite sized! Read on to see my first steps in sewing this dress…

This month’s Mash Up I decided to sew up two garments instead of one – a “cardigan” and a pencil skirt to make a chic faux suede & fur outfit. I love the end result and how the fabrics look together, just need a swanky occasion to wear this to. Read on to see more images and a member variation!

Last week I so busy travelling and filming a new sew-along that I didn’t have time to post my Mash Up update! But today i’m back with how I sewed the skirt portion of my March Mash Up look together including altering the length and adding in an exposed zipper. I also do a last neckline alteration to the cape cardigan before I photograph the entire look.

My February Mash Up was such a success, and I’m so excited to jump into my March Mash Up! It took me a while to flip through the 03/2018 issue and determine what I wanted to make, and I narrowed down three patterns from this issue that I wanted to sew in our Burda Challenge February Round Up post here, but last minute I had a change of heart on which pattern I planned for my Mash Up.

Since February is the shortest month of the year, I get to debut my finished Mash Up project even sooner! Now that I look at my finished dress, it almost doubles as a light coat – and I love it. The contrast between the off white twill to the faux leather is perfection and I wish I had more places to go to wear this outfit. Read on to see how I finished up sewing this dress and more project images…

My faux leather trimmed wrap dress is coming along so great, and I can’t wait to debut it for you all soon! Also the digital pattern is now live and up here on BurdaStyle.com, so if you don’t subscribe to the magazine you can download the pattern here to sew along. This week I attach the wrap skirt to the bodice (in a different way than the instructions) and also assemble the sleeve.

This week I focused on sewing together the skirt section of my dress and attached one of the faux leather panels with lots of topstitching! I love how this dress pattern is coming together and I can’t wait to wear it.

I’m so happy with how these leggings turned out, they are super comfy and I love the high waist! I even made a second pair and matching yoga top pattern from the same collection using a thicker supplex for the bottoms and a double faced jersey for the top which worked perfectly for the back drape.

This week I finished sewing my January Mash Up, and I’m so excited next week to debut it! I love these leggings so much I even whipped up another pair and a matching yoga top.
