    Inkstain1 commented on the article Sew the Trends of Paris Fashion Week

    Much more useful to me than ‘mashups,’ these posts give us the chance to achieve some really classy runway looks when matched to Burda patterns. Keep up the great work, TyMarie, and thanks to your …

    Inkstain1 added the project Faux Fur Coat Burda 12/2011/model 116
    Dscn0620_listing

    I used a faux fur with a very ‘soft hand,’ but wanted a coat that would stand up to Swiss winters, so I completely underlined it with inexpensive IKEA ‘Ditta’ cotton, then used a quality lining, gi…

    Inkstain1 commented on the article New BurdaEasy Pattern: Seamed Skirts!

    I had a lot of fun making a zebra-striped fur mini, but watch out for piecing challenges and definitely check the length before cutting!
    Here’s my post and pics of the result. I’ve worn it a lot o…

    Agree with Graziella. I’m flipping all the time through the Burda manual, only available here in my third language, to try to understand the magazine’s instructions. Burda’s methods are often diffe…

    Wny do you list this as from the February 2010 collection and then relabel it above as from the October 2015 issue? I’ve checked my latest issue and it certainly isn’t there.

    They look fun, but is there perhaps a design flaw in not making a dart on each outside seam of the bra cups? I noticed this excess fabric on the original model photo and now that Meg had to make ’b…

    Classic, beautiful design, but not at all a trench.
    This is a coachman’s coat, given the high, wide collar, but no gunflaps or epaulets, or sleeve flaps and the trim fitted waist silhouette.

    Very hip and cool. I don’t suppose we’ll ever see ‘Handwork" on our stands in Switzerland, but now I’ll keep a lookout.

    Thanks so much. I’m trying to connect better with other sewists to raise my mojo out of a general empty-nest depression. A little summer sewing has helped and so do all kind comments.

    At the end of the day, (actually at the beginning of the day, but let’s not get technical) I spend a lot of my working time alone at my desk writing novels. There is no wardrobe regime for this but…

    Dscn1747-1_listing

    I have stitched up three fresh summer shirts so far this year. One of them was the Kenzo wiggly peplum number and another was a ‘Margaret Howell’ camp or ‘boyfriend’ shirt, already reviewed here.

    The designer Margaret Howell offered a ‘boyfriend’ shirt look for this summer.

    Goodness knows why I tackled such a look when it doesn’t even flatter a young woman walking the runway. It feature…

    My experience with a loose top the is deep-V-necked at both front and back is that it falls off. That jade tank top paired with the floral skirt is very insecure looking. Would be interested to see…

    On the subject of the pattern, not the pop-ups, I fear these are a little too trendy a trend for someone my age. I always feel a little sorry for fashionistia dragging around their droopy-crotched …
