A Little Bit of BurdaStyle


I LOVE BurdaStyle Magazines. I have been buying them ever since High School.That said I only buy them when the patterns in the issue really appeal.

This issue 2/2016 has some great patterns. I particularly like The Sheath Dress with notches pattern 129. I have made two versions of this pattern .

These are the fabrics I used;

A beautiful blue and white Jacquard, and a distressed looking pvc backed with black jersey.

The Jacquard is really fresh and light very transeasonal. I had to add cotton tape to the shoulders to ensure it didn’t stretch out of shape .jacquardinside

This pattern made up quite quickly it is not difficult ,but there are a lot of pieces, so pay attention to the instructions.Enjoy!

I love this version of this dress not only does it have pockets MY FAVOURITE addition but it is easy wearing doesn’t crush and just a bit of fun.


The other fabric I had thought would be more winter and it is but the style is so roomy that you need layers to make it warm though it does block the wind.


The sun was shining when I took these photos. Today is winter, grey cold and wet.

I hope you are doing lots of inspiring creating, it really does feed the soul.

Happy Sewing,

Sue 🙂

    I like the dress pattern a lot and love the red coat pictured with it. What coat pattern did you use?

    Hi there Sue. I found you via Rhonda Buss’s blog, and am so glad that I have! I’ve sewn that Burda dress before, and adore it, but I especially like your version in the PVC (I think I recognise the fabric from Darn Cheap Fabrics? I made a bag from it a few years ago). I’ll be reading your blog with great interest.
    Regards, Lara (thornberry)

    Hi Sue, I was introduced to your blog through Rhonda Buss. Great to find another Aussie sewer with great design flair. Are you Sydney based?
