    piackdy commented on the article Popular Marking Tools In Sewing

    My current favorites are Clover Chaco Pens (chalk powder dispenser, not really “pen”) where I need the mark to disappear eventually, and the waxy type of tracing paper (+ tracing wheel) where the m…

    piackdy added the project Lace Applique Drawstring Top
    Dscf4933_listing

    I liked the Burda original, but thought a drapier fabric might work better for us non-models. So I chose georgette for the main fabric. The lace is leftover from the self-drafted ‘straight’ skirt s…

    piackdy added the project Sew & Knit Shrug
    4_style2-3_listing

    Fed up with not finding the perfect sweater knit & matching cuff ribbing – and not having the patience to knit a whole sweater from scratch, I experimented with sew & knit. I found this lovely swea…

    piackdy added the project Mutton-As-Lamb Tiered Skirt Yeehaw!
    4-style7-5_listing

    Adult version of the tiered skirt I made for my niece. This time with fitted tier 1 & A-line underlayer & lining. And 400+ manually zig-zagged scallops!

    But the result is well worth it. The ski…

    piackdy commented on the project Commitment-Phobe-Lover's Moto Jacket

    Thank you all for your lovely comments! It was a bit of an experiment and I’m so glad it turned out well. Hopefully it’ll inspire you to try flatlock seams, wrap edge finishing, and make your own r…

    J_4-style3-1_listing

    Based on the bad-ass Burda Asymmetrical Moto Jacket of 2013/11, my version is a bit of everything. And to me the perfect balance of edgy & femininity, ready to play any style I fancy for the day! …

    piackdy added the project Jungle Jan 2014 Ferdinand the Snake Dress
    3-style1-9_listing

    I’m shocked no one else has made and review this dress here. (Burda Russia is a different story.) It’s a pretty dress, even if the front neckline drape isn’t as deep as promised by the pattern phot…

    piackdy added the project Kiddy Tiered Skirt Yeehaw!
    Tiered-skirt_2-finished_listing

    Another one for my 11-year-old niece which I wouldn’t mind stealing myself if I had made it my size! I was going to use Burda Kids 9547 E, but decided I’d prefer the tiers to be free-floating like …

    piackdy added the project Sparkly Kiddy Balero Jacket
    B9547_2-finished_listing

    My first attempt to sew for my 11-year-old niece in America (I’m in the UK). The pattern is Burda Kids 9547 B. It’s a shame most of the Burdastyle kids patterns are for younger kids. I couldn’t bel…

    piackdy added the project Ever the Wearable Muslin T
    5-style-3_listing

    This started out life as a second muslin for my T-Shirt Block based on Burda 2012-09-123. It was wearable, but not flattering as the fabric was too thin so I looked like an overstuffed sausage. Not…

    piackdy added the project Breakfast at Tiffany sweater top
    4-style1-2_listing

    This is my attempt to recreate a beloved sweater I accidentally shrunken. It’s based on a flared tunic Burda pattern, which was the closest I can find in silhouette to what I wanted. It’s surprisin…

    4-bs201209123-style1-6_listing

    This started out as a wearable muslin for a T-Shirt Block. But I got inspired by Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall / Winter 2013 Byzantine Princess collection and decided to make this into a proper tribute T-…

    Thank you! This was an one-off mega-effort styling. Gave me such appreciation for the fabulous photos one sees in the magazines!

    Thank you! Yes, the 2nd picture shows one of the two top I did manage to squeeze out of the same fabric. It’s Vogue 1282 Donna Karan cowl neck top.

    Actually Merche showed off the same top and sk…
