The Burda Girl's Maroon Fall Garments


A couple times a year I fly out to F+W studios to film a new course for BurdaStyle Academy. This past August I wrapped up filming From Sketch to Pattern: Design Your Own Skirts and Tops and also brought my favorite Burda girl’s a newly made garment for fall! Before I left I asked them each what they wanted me to make for them, Ty chose a bomber jacket and Ali wanted a dress. The best part? They both wanted maroon fabrics!

DIY Maternity Style


In just a few months I’ll be turning the big 3-0 and while I’m still busy planning my upcoming wedding, many of my friends are planning their baby nurseries. The phrase “maternity style” may make most fashionistas shudder but in recent years I think with the help of celebrities, we’ve seen that not all style has to be thrown out the window while expecting. I think it’s important to look your best and of course yourself, even while you’re carrying a little one. Here are some of our favorite sewing, fashion and DIY bloggers showing just how stylish one can be during those challenging yet rewarding nine months.

Swimwear Sew Alongs!


I know summer has ended, but that doesn’t mean that making swimsuits has to! I always still wear my swimsuits through the fall and winter (I love lounging in a hot tub on a cold winter night). So of course I still make my own swimsuits through all the different seasons. Read on to check out my one-piece Alison suit sew along, as well as a video on putting together bikini bottoms!
