I’m super excited to announce that I’m the latest contributor for Sew New Magazine’s “Pattern Play” column! In each upcoming issue I’ll be altering, sewing and putting my own spin on a BurdaStyle pattern, read on to see the latest transformation from the Feb/Mar 2017 issue of Sew News.

For this issue I wanted to create a denim dress and also play with print mixing. I found a bunch of these denim fabrics and used classic denim topstitching thread to finish the dress. I used our Shift Dress #115 04/2012 pattern and added sleeve bands, a flounce, and an extra top panel for maximum fabric panel ability. Check inside the issue for a special coupon code to download the pattern!
