    For my first Etsy project I wanted to create a basic shift dress with the added styling of an exposed zipper. The Fatina pattern seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. I also decided to try…

    Absolutely stunning work! Are you sure it’s only an “Intermediate” level? I’d have no idea where to begin. The photographs are beautiful as well. What a picturesque location.

    This dress is adorable and looks like it could be easily transformed into maternity wear (of which I’m currently in need, yay!). Does anyone have any recommendations on what alterations would be r…

    I bought 3 yds for size 38 and found that I also only used about 2 yds. Plenty of leftovers for practicing those challenging welt pockets.

    Instructions are visible on this page in the tab above the model’s picture (the letters are grey, but it’s not a dead link, you can still click on them). They are a series of slides that you click…

    I have the same question as Bola. How do you know when you’re creations are “good enough” to sell. Also, from an income-standpoint, when you make money off your Etsy shop, how do you claim it for…

    holidaypepper commented on the project Pretty Woman by Plain Jane

    I love it! It really does look like “Vivian’s” dress. The only thing missing is the fabulous hat…and Richard Gere ; ) Did you use a pattern for this? (I also totally love the shoes!)

    This is so beautiful! It didn’t even hit me until I read “swimming suit” in your description that this was from the Burda Style swimsuit pattern. I just thought it was a gorgeous top! Excellent …

    This dress is one of my first projects from Burda magazine. The August 2009 issue included a Parisian Fashion section, which is what this pattern is from. The dress took me two and a half days to…

    This is really stunning! What excellent work. I have no experience with this sort of item so you’ll have to educate me, how does it attach to the bride’s hair?

    I made this dress for my summer vacation to the ocean. Photos taken before the sunburn :)

    I’m having trouble linking the dress to the Burdastyle pattern in this new format. Any recommendations?

    Alden I am SO with you on this. At 6’1" it’s impossible to find stylish clothes that fit well. Or rather…was impossible. That was before Burda Style and my adventures in sewing. Now when I ma…

    AnaJan, in looking through magazines lately I’ve noticed that the pleated bib style blouses are really popular for this summer and fall. Thanks for posting the pattern!
