Our BurdaStyle Influencers were busy sewing their June projects, and they all turned out so great! From summer dresses, skirts, and blouses to edgy top and little girl’s dresses – our influencers created some amazing summery pieces. Read on to see them all and get the patterns they used.

Laura over at Trash to Couture put an edgy twist on our Laced T-Shirt pattern by adding a diagonal mesh yoke and contrasting band hems.

Sewing Julie sewed up our Sleeveless Peplum Blouse, and we how elegant and summer-ready this blouse is especially with the belt! Julie opted for a gingham fabric and cut the hem band on a different grainline for a contrasting effect. Read more here!

Heidi from Elegance & Elephants made this sweet version of our Girl’s Bib Dress. The pink fabric paired over the printed leggings is the perfect in-between weather look – I think Anja will be getting a lot of wear out of this jumper!

Victoria Ann Meyers made a couple versions of this Short Sleeve Blouse including an awesome skull version sewn in chiffon with vintage buttons. Read more here.

Sharadha over at Sweet Shard is giving us major 90s vibes in her version of our V-Neck Button Up. She used burnt orange crepe from the bottom of her mom’s fabric stash, and it worked so well to give this pattern’s silhouette an airy feel. Read more about it here!

Kari from Sew-On-Trend chose to make this Flared Godet Skirt from the 05/2012 issue – and we love the bright color of her version! She also played around with the pattern and made a couple of versions that you can check out here.

Second Piano’s Sasha made a beautiful stretch twill dress using our V-Neck Tank Dress pattern. She choose this pattern for its column-silhouette and it fits her like a glove! Read more about her dress alterations here.

    These look great. However, I can’t help but wonder: did you not choose any plus-sized influencers?
