Fabric Scrap ReStyle

New York, New Yo...






Given the success of our previous restyles, we thought we would bring back our most commented on patterns and show you just how versatile it can be. This quilt was the brain child of hours of work and we thought, “why let it languish in the depths of the BurdaStyle archives?” We have styled it subtly and put it in what we feel is its natural environment. The beauty of this pattern is that is it both “normal”, plus size, and unisex. Enjoy!!!!!

    For an April’s Fool, it’s a bit weak. There are people out there who try to sell you stuff like that, all the year around, for serious. And for money.

    I find it amusing that Alden has to have a drink (possibly wine) to wear the thing! Good look’n! & ha haa!

    YES! fashionista, work those pumps! this would totally be in urban outfitters priced out of it’s mind for all the hipsters. alden & remake are both fabulous. and you could so rock this over jeans.

    i can’t wait to hear the opinions….

    Love such ideas, and somehow the mess too :-)

    I was just thinking of making something like this…. I love spanish Desigual clothes but they are very expensive for my pocket and I also have a huge pile of scraps.
