Hi BurdaStylers! Thank you ALL again for voting on my next mash up pattern, it was very helpful and I love your input. The poll came to such a close tie (by 1%) between the Long Sleeve Blouse and the Peasant Blouse… so I decided to make BOTH! You can never have to many summer blouses right? I’m going to start with the long sleeve blouse pattern. Read on to see how I modified the pattern and cut it out of lovely printed silk linen.

Hi BurdaStylers! I took the dive into starting to sew my gold godet skirt mash up this week. Let’s just say, once I started sewing I couldn’t stop! I finished sewing the skirt in 1 1/2 hours, excluding the embroidery though (super excited to start on that though). In this post I focus on the first half of sewing this skirt… mainly inserting those panels!
