Spring is an incredibly beautiful and inspiring time here in New York city and what makes it even better? A new wardrobe!
This week I’ve taken some of my favorite current trends and poured through the Burdastyle archives to find patterns which can easily be utilized to recreate these looks. To make these silhouettes modern and fresh, wouldn’t it be great to use bright prints or bold graphics, perhaps add droopy pockets to the mushroom dress or make the Charlie bag in an ethnic upholstery print?
Here are the links to the patterns pictured above:
The Anda Dress is a quick and easy project, and is great for beginners.
Andrea is a simple blouse with lovely seam lines that can easily be altered and adjusted.
