Sewing for Summer

Burdastyle is a new site for me - I have downloaded my first free pattern (see photo). The designer was new to it too so her pattern needed a little help (but fab for first try). It is a sleeveless top with gathering and yoke neckline - neat at the waist then flairs out - I am quite excited about trying out this pattern with some of my vintage fabric - I will keep you updated. Remember to always check sizing - I will be adding 1.5 cms for this pattern - although it says seam allowance included - I will post a picture of the finished top


  1. If you find another Burdastyle pattern you like but don't want to print out the 15 or so A4 pages you can take the pdf of the large one sheet pattern to Officeworks to print out. They can print up to A0 (well the one near me could) so if you are prepared to spend money in order to save hassle then it is worth looking into.

  2. melissa, that is some excellent news to my ears. i had no idea.. this could be dangerous. I don't enjoy the crazy 3 hour sticky tape fiasco Burda requires at all. *yay* for free patterns
