Runway to Reality with Brother: Ali's Look


Hi BurdaStylers, I’m so excited to share with you the look I made for Burda’s own Ali! This outfit is very much her style, and she was inspired by a look down the runway from designer Lela Rose at New York Fashion Week. For this look I made both the top and skirt from BurdaStyle patterns and using Brother sewing machines. I can’t believe this is already our fourth look debut for our Runway to Reality look book with Brother, and only 1 more to go before the look book reveal! Read on to see how I prepped and started to make Ali’s look.

St. Patrick's Day Style All Year Round!


Hi BurdaStylers, and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I do love this day because 1. I’m from Irish heritage, and 2. Green is my favorite color (and I look great wearing it with my red hair). I once had a motto “Dress up like every day is St. Patrick’s Day”, since I love to wear green. Although I don’t wear it as much as I used to, I still love the color and every shade of it whether it be kelly, emerald, or limegreen. I have pulled some of my favorite sewn in green patterns and styled them in outfits that I would totally wear!
