    Hi

    Thanks for your nice comments on my Kasia. I used black satin for the lining – I had some left over from another project. I can’t remember what interfacing I used but I do know it wasn’t st…

    86da46d26b8d104d3140257829c0d563cae79cca_listing

    A version for work. I had to bodge it a bit at the waist as the ‘finished garment size’ which I went on turned to be considerably bigger than I needed. But it is the most complicated thing I’ve mad…

    valmcf commented on the project Like Laura Ingalls

    I made this pattern (it’s on here somewhere) but yours looks SO much better! I should have gone for a darker fabric. I also changed the neckline as I couldn’t understand the instructions! Great pic…

    Thanks for your nice comments on my swirly skirt. I love it – it’s just a shame the weather here in England has been terrible all summer so I’ve hardly had a chance to wear it!

    Thanks for your nice comments on my puffy dress. With all the support from Burdastyle members I might just find the nerve to wear it!

    Thanks for the positive feedback on my puffy dress. I love the fabrics you use, incidentally. One of these days I’ll be brave enough to not use plain colours!

    Thanks for the feedback on my puffy dress…everyone seems to like it apart from my husband so I might just wear it! Your green dress is beautiful, by the way.

    Thanks for your comment on my puffy dress. My husband generally has good taste but he knows what he likes…and it’s not this! He’s not keen on anything too different. But all the positive comments…

    Thank you! I’ve only been sewing a few months so it’s really nice to get some encouraging comments. I hope I have the nerve to wear my puffy dress sometime as so much effort went into it!

    Thanks for your words of encouragement about my puffy dress! It is very comfy and I think I will come round to loving it eventually. I just need to convince my husband that it’s great!

    Ff7904f7974354e9743d71dd786942152385a827_listing

    This took me ages to make but I’m not sure I like it now! Comments welcomed. On the upside it taught me how to do an invisible zip and I made my own bias tape for the neckline instead of following …

    Thank you ! I feel much better about it now! Maybe it’s because my husband laughed when I put it on for the first time! I thought it was quite quirky…and you are right about it being a learning p…

    A simple little skirt which I wear to work. I’d had it on all day when these pictures were taken so it’s a bit crushed.

    A29959352c109ff1e4191648e6cf4cd03c7d7c20_listing

    I made this in a light fabric with a lurex stripe (it’s posted on the site) but I think these look better. Great job.
