My First Burda Make

Added Jun 9, 2008

by koozithing

Sheffield, Unite...






This is the first pattern I’ve used on this website and I found it very clear and easy to make. I made it just in time for my hols and the good old British weather held enough for me to enjoy wearing it :)

Material Notes

Good quality John Caldor cotton bought at a great price from a sewing exhibition (£5 per metre). Orange and lilac fabric I had in my scrap box.





Thanx to hubby for photographing me (under protest)

    Gorgeous! You did a great job – the fit is perfect and very flattering. I love this pattern but was also concerned about it looking bulky, but you proved it could look very sleek. You have inspired me…

    Ohhh, I love your skirt and the black and white fabric is gorgeous. A lot of other creations I’ve seen from this pattern look really bulky in the front, but yours doesn’t look that way at all. Now, I’m wanted to give this pattern a try.
