    Johanna Lu commented on the project Workout top by Papercut Patterns

    I highly recommend it, plus it’s easy to customize to add your own flair, which is the best thing about sewing :-)

    Johanna Lu commented on the project Anita skinny jeans in dark denim

    Yes definitely hard work, but I actually find jeans to be easier to make than some other more ambitious sewing projects. The fabric is easy to work with and lots of straight lines :-)

    Johanna Lu commented on the project Merino Strathcona Henley

    Looks fab! I’m very impressed that you managed to make that button band in a merino knit fabric. I’ve tried making those several times in various supple knits and they were always a struggle

    This is the second time I make these and I strongly recommend this pattern if skinny jeans are what you want. Skinny as in tight and tapered, not straight or boot-cut. The legs are super long thoug…

    Really strong collection. Love the all the tie details, will definitely sew the skirt and the tie waist dress is very tempting too.

    Hi djoule!
    Sorry to hear that. No I didn’t have any issues, but I downloaded it in March of this year I think. So it was quite a while back. Have you contacted the Burdastyle staff?
