Meg's Favorite Pattern Collections from 2015... On Sale!


Hi BurdaStylers, it’s Meg here and I wanted to share with you my top 5 most favorite pattern collections that we published in 2015. Last year I did something similar, and I wanted to do it again and this time put them on sale for you! At the start of a new year I like to think ahead of what this year has got planned, and I also like to reflect back on the past year at both the good and the bad. So I took some time and went through all the pattern collections we posted (there was a lot!) and compiled my favorite 5 in terms of the pattern designs, styling, and what I would most likely make. Check to see the 5 I have chosen and get them on sale in a pattern bundle at only $1 a pattern. Happy New Year (when can you not say that anymore? Like mid-January I think).

New Vintage Pattern: The Retro Wool Dress!


We were excited when we found that the 01/2016 issue featured a vintage pattern! The Retro Wool Dress was originally published in the Burda Fashion Special Issue Autumn / Winter 1957/58! We love the clean silhouette, sewn down pleats in the waistseam, and pockets! This pattern is stylish and to the point, it even looks like a two piece suit instead of a dress.
