    karey added the project Colour blocked cargo shorts
    20190114_081534-1_listing

    I used Burda 06/2014 #118 to refashion shorts I cut in the 1990s for DH when I was making board shorts for all the family out of funky fabrics. I had barely enough fabric to cut these out.
    The mod…

    Nice trousers but they look like you could have moved to a smaller size for the hips. They also look too long over your torso as if they need to be shortened at the hip line. You can see on the mod…

    This is an inspired hack of this pattern. I’d been wondering if it would work without the drape down the centre, you show how good it looks. I like the skirt you’ve added too.

    I love this pattern hack. Your version of top is much better than original. I had wondered if it was redeemable by gettibg rid of fabric in centre. You show it is worth the effort. Combining it wi…

    Your dress looks good. Tip: solve neckline gaping by folding out pinch of fabric from bust point to nearest point on neckline. Slash dart to bust point & open up dart until pattern lies flat.

    I’m with you. Gathered skirts don’t suit me either. This dress is on my to-do list, but subbing a straight skirt. Your version looks great.
    I started knitting a long coat while I was pregnant wit…

    Thanks Mary. I’ll definitely be making another. I’ve got enough of an embossed velvet stretch suiting left from my shift dress for front and upper arms. Will use plain stretch suiting for rest (fou…

    Karey-jacket-closed_listing

    Based on Burda jacket 2/2011 #108
    I made a couple of changes to the pattern. I added slant pockets in side front panels. I also ran the stretch across the width of the pattern instead of the lengt…

    Thanks for sharing this. I’ve tended to avoid Chanel styles because they seem designed to suit women with small busts. My shape is more like yours – busty & short, as compared to the tall, skinny &…
