As soon as I finished up sewing and wearing my August issue Mash Up – my first fall pattern – there is a heat wave throughout the city! I really do love how this garment turned out, and here I paired it over a simple black T-shirt and nude booties for the canvas jumper’s summer look! I can’t wait until the leaves turn and fall so I can wear it over all my turtlenecks for sweater weather. Read on to see more pics, and links to my tutorial posts…


Again, I sewed up this pattern in a printed canvas fabric using BurdaStyle size 38. If fit really nicely in the waist area with just enough room to layer underneath, and I also love the silhouette shape of the A-line skirt. Best of all too – no darts!

My favorite part of this jumper are the little gold buttons with the overlap effect at center front, and I didn’t even have to sew buttonholes! I also may replace the back zipper, it’s fine and what was meant to be sewn in the pattern – but the original pattern called for lightweight fabric and since I used canvas the zipper is a little tricky to pull through all the waistband seams (since there are two layers – one being interfaced). I should have known from the start and while I was installing – but hey, the invisible zipper was just there and they are so easy to install! A gold metal zipper although could looks nice at the back and compliment the front bit of gold.

For my September issue projects, we’re going to be “Mashing it Up” a little bit, haha. I’m going to have a couple of our BurdaStyle Influencers sub in for me while I’m traveling on our Burda Italy Tour! I’m so excited to see what they’ll create.

Happy Sewing!

    Looks great! I sewed this one too, but in a pinstripe dark denim. Such a versatile piece.
