    piackdy added the project called 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 called 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 called 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 called 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 called 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 called 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…

    piackdy added the project called Heavenly T
    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-…

    piackdy added the project called Psychedelic Leopard Skirt
    Bs201205113-style2_4_listing

    I love how the Burda skirt looked, especially the view C. When I decided to use up this old jersey I had for years, this was the only skirt of interest that would fit into my meager 2 yards that wo…
