Sew like the Irish: My St. Patrick's Day Style!


Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone! It is one of my favorite holidays because 1. Green is my favorite color, and 2. I’m Irish! Leggings are the best thing to quickly sew up for any special occasion/themed holiday. I made a pair of green and white leggings using our Leggings Sloper and paneled some different fabrics together. I’ll even wear these after St. Patrick’s Day!

Wear This Dress All Spring


We’re suckers for a timeless dress and it doesn’t get much better than a classic shirt dress. It’s a closet staple that is seeing a huge resurgence this season. Perfect for this transitional time of year when dressing in layers and wearing versatile pieces are a must. It suits every body type and there are a number of ways you can modify this flattering silhouette to suit you and your style. Try an assymetric hemline for an edgy look, stay classic with a button down or go bold with a fun floral printed fabric.

See below just a few of our favorite BurdaStyle shirt dress patterns along with fabric picks from Mood Fabrics. To view the full range of shirt dress patterns, take a look at our specially curated shirt dress category here where you will find plenty of options to choose from!
