Meg's Magazine Mash Up: Drafting My Dress & Filming Trip!


I know it has been a while, but I have been a busy sewing girl these past couple of weeks! But now I am back in the groove of things and home from my fun (and exhausting) film trip to capture videos for a brand new course on BurdaStyle Academy where I demonstrate how to sew your own pair of jeans. I also purchased fabric for my High Collar Dress Mash Up, and I redid the sketch for it. Read on to learn more about my trip and how I alter the dress sewing pattern…
