After watching The Great British Sewing Bee on Tuesday, I have been feeling inspired to attempt some dressmaking. Recently, Burda Style have been sending me emails featuring their latest pattern collections and I haven’t been able to resist them! Their latest collections were the Yacht Style Collection and the Retro Queen Collection, both of which had some stunning pieces. I particularly liked the Yacht Style Collection, and these were some of my favourite pieces, click the image for the link:
This top is simple but looks really affective and, even better, pretty straight forward for beginners! I think I have found my starting point!
These shorts are adorable! I would love to make these, so I’ll have to start building up my skills!
This dress is stunning but definitely way beyond my ability…maybe in a few years time I will be able to revisit this one with a bit more confidence!
I fell in love with the collection so much I went out to buy the magazine that features both the Yacht Style Collection and the Retro Queen Collection, as well as a collection of business wear, a plus size collection and a collection for men. All this for less than £5!
The magazine has a pull out section featuring the instructions and patterns for the 53 projects that are featured. It was amazing value for money and, even though the projects are pretty advanced for me now, I am looking forward to trying them after a bit of practice!
