    dborecky commented on the article Member Model Challenge: Pleated Designer Dress

    I agree that it seems unfair that Burda is getting a free model photo without having to pay for a model or photographer or location while making money selling the pattern. I think that in addition…

    dborecky commented on the article Project Sew-Alongs: The Romantic Maxi Dress

    Why can’t the sew-alongs be free? What percentage of website members are also subscribers? Subscribers already have the pattern from the magazine. If you don’t already have the pattern, seeing t…

    dborecky commented on the pattern Short Sleeve Tunic Top 03/2010

    Since there is no closure at the neck, how does it stay flat? Wouldn’t the weight of the silver squares cause it to flop open?

    dborecky added the project Hawthorn Dress
    Hawthorndress071713_listing

    Here is my Hawthorn Dress by Colette Patterns. I will definitely make it again because I want to perfect the armholes to accommodate my armpit bulges and to fit the waist darts better for my small…

    dborecky added the project Rooster Pincushion
    Rooster_001_listing

    I saw little rooster pincushions for sale at a quilt show recently and I thought they were so cute, but I didn’t want to pay $5 for a tiny one. So I decided I would love it even more if I made my …

    dborecky commented on the article In The Navy: 10 New Sewing Patterns

    Do you have a picture of the wrap style dress you made? ‘20s style dresses are supposedly going to be in because of the Great Gatsby film coming out later this year, and I’m debating if I should m…

    dborecky commented on the article Enter the "BurdaStyle Vintage Modern Sewing Contest"

    I hit the “publish” button to upload my entry, but it’s not going through. Is that because you don’t want people to see the entries until the unveiling date? If so, how do I know if my entry has …

    dborecky commented on the article Interview with Co-Author Jamie Lau

    I really liked your article and instructions on how to draft a skirt, and I wish Burdastyle (or just you) would make a book on drafting basic pieces. Is there one already out there that you would …

    dborecky commented on the article November in Review

    I asked the same thing maybe a year ago! I think since we’ve already paid for the patterns through the magazine subscription, we should have the option via password or something to download the pa…

    dborecky commented on the project colour blocking nightmare

    I had a really hard time trying to get the points near the bust to lay properly without any weird puckering, so I gave up and scrapped it. Does anyone have any tips on that?

    So simple, why didn’t I think of doing that! Thanks! Now I just HAVE to make this dress!

    dborecky commented on the project Mauve Taupe Polka Dot Halter Dress

    How did you vary the straps? Did you just move them to the sides more? I stay away from halters because I have an armpit bulge from when I got infected milk ducts, but I like how your straps cove…

    dborecky commented on the project One Pattern Two Dresses

    I’m making this dress now too, but I am having trouble with the folds on the front. I don’t know how much to fold on each line and I can’t find it in the instructions nor on the pattern sheet. Pl…

    dborecky commented on the project The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook - Our Blouse

    I like this blouse, and I want to make it, but a few things annoy me. 1. I thought those lines were pleats, but it’s just ribbon sewed on the front. 2. The example is in black material, and it’s ha…
