Pick your favorite pattern for the upcoming interactive sew along. We have a winner! The first sew along will tackle the Silk Motorcycle Jacket.

We’re introducing a new kind of sew along. Not only will you get to sew a new project along with other BurdaStylers from around the world, you’ll get an interactive forum where you can watch how-to videos, chat with each other, and post your progress! These new sew alongs will be more interactive, featuring lots of hands on help from the BurdaStyle team and your fellow members.

Each new sew along will be full of in depth instruction, so we want your help to pick a fun, challenging project! Vote for your favorite below.

105A 305 117 305

Should we start off with a breezy Cropped Chambray Blouse for spring? This is a perfect intermediate project that you can wear with all those high waisted bottoms. The Front Pleat Skirt is a new classic in soft floral batiste.

121 305 115 305

The Island Placket Dress has plenty of detail for a sew along, like the front and back pintucks, buttoned placket, and piping. The Silk Motorcycle Jacket is equally fun to sew with the asymmetrical zips and luxe fabric.

106 305

The X Wrap Dress has a striking, contemporary look. It’s like an optical illusion you can wear! Vote for this piece if you want to see the construction broken down.

This vote is now closed. The winner is the Silk Motorcycle Jacket.

    What size does the moto jacket pattern come in? I don’t see that mentioned anywhere.

    When does this sew along start? What materials do we need? Is it a kit purchase? Or do we buy our own supplies. Please post details. Cheers!

    Motorcycle jackets in silk-sounds like summer wear! Looking forward to the sew-along. Actually have seen motorcycle jackets in several clothing lines for spring/summer. As sewists, we will make our jackets fit and can get creative with details.

    I’m pretty sure that the X wrap dress is almost straight out of an old issue. It immediately rang a bell when I saw it in the April 2014 issue.

    I hope there won’t be a cost to participate (other than pattern and supplies). I love learning from sew alongs. My vote is for the silk motorcycle jacket.
