    • DVF style wrap dress

      Added May 28, 2016

      I had a cute black/ivory jersey that needed to be made into a DVF style wrap dress. I had an inspiration piece and used Burdastyle 06/2011 #139 as the starting point. It is a Blumarine designer pattern and I made a few changes like changing the sleeves to a 3/4 sle…

    • .: Pastel Pants :.

      Added Jun 7, 2013

      This is the same pattern I used for my Blumarine-Leo-Pants.
      I truly love this pattern and made just one alteration: I lenghened the pattern around 11cm.
      This pattern is an alrounder, it’s so simple that you can choose a lot of fabrics: with wild leo-print or just …

    • .: Blumarine inspired pants :.

      Added May 22, 2013

      I just love this pattern! I was looking for a perfekt fitting pants-pattern for years and now I’m happy that I found this.
      I made just one alteration: I made the pants 11cm longer (because I’m 1,80m tall).
      The fabric was marked as a Blumarine fabric of the spring/…

    • PARTY ANIMAL - Blumarine wrap dress

      Added Apr 8, 2012

      I have finished this dress already last year but fogot to post it. It’s my second take on the Burda BLUMARINE pattern 139 (6/2011). Compared to the first one, this animal print version is in my opinion more a party dress. Up to now, I have only worn it once.


    • Blumarine designer dress - jersey made glamorous (my take)

      Added Mar 8, 2012

      I finished this dress about a week ago, and no opportunity to photograph it. The weather has changed again and it is raining continuously.

      But there we go, I have given my dress form a chance and I think it did a good job :-)

      This dress follows the pattern pu…

    • Glamourous warmth - fake fur gilet vest Burda 09/2011

      Added Mar 8, 2012

      The project is very similar to the fake fur waistcoats/vest in petite sizes as featured in Burda Magazine, 09/2011.

      I have used my pattern instead, and cut it slightly longer. I have added buttons, hand made buttonholes and the lining has been attached by hand.

    • Blumarine Dress

      I’ve already sewn a copy of this dress but haven’t worn it yet.
      When my girlfriend saw it she said that the dress is very sexy and that she wanted to have it as well.
      So I sewed her one fast. She has worn it for company party yesterday.
      The dress is very simple to…

    • LI LA LAUNE DRESS - based on Blumarine pattern

      Added Oct 23, 2011

      This polka dotted wrap dress is based on the Burda BLUMARINE pattern 139 (6/2011). I was wondering if I can sew this with my very basic skills and decided to use a very cheap 3,50 € fabric from the rummage table for the trial. It is my first self sewn wrap dress at a…
