#burdachallenge2018 January Round up

Welcome to the first of many #burdachallenge2018 round up posts! Each month I will be posting a digest where hopefully you can get amazing sewing inspiration and ideas. Allons-y!
Chris reposted a very useful post about tracing BurdaStyle patterns here: #Burdachallenge 2018: Tracing patterns – a piece of cake!

It is quite interesting to see how she does it as it is different to how I trace. Given that she is a pro at using BurdaStyle I am going to be trying out her method and will let you know how I get on. How do you trace your BurdaStyle patterns? Let me know in the comments down below.

This is how I have been tracing in this video I made last year: Beginners Guide to Using BurdaStyle Patterns.

Anne who blogs at The Compulsive Seamstress sewed up lovely tops: Red Monday & When a Door Closes, Open a Window! & The Burda Challenge 2018

Diane  (Dream.Cut.Sew) has made some beautiful garments – a skirt and a top: Modified Burda Style Cosy Winter Skirt

Eleanor (NelNanandNora.wordpress.com) sewed up a yoga top from the January 2018 issue here Sewing Hope: My Story

Sew Artisan made a stunning pussybow dress with tutorial post too!: Burda Style Pussybow Dress Project 

Meg at BurdaStyle.com has made the leggings from the Jan 2018 issue: Meg’s Magazine Mash Up 01/2018: Part 3

Chris aka SaidDoneChris is an amazing Burda pro: Tops, tops and more tops! A mixed entry for #burdachallenge2018  & Burdastyle 1/2018 #116: Dramatic Sleeve Blouse

Ooboop has made a Red glitter dress with bell sleeves

@ingrid.artur shared how she uses Trello to organise her BurdaStyle sewing list. Great idea!

Meg wrote a Burda Challenge Feature: Melissa Fehr. A great read.

On IG I shared my collection of Burdas and invited others to post their collections too and it was amazing – here is a selection of some of them. The stories that the collectors shared were the best part. Reading about the connections people have with their magazines was awe inspiring. One collector has a collection from May 1968 inherited from her grandmother.

Do you want to see my collection 😶? It's hidden behind a curtain in what used to be my mom's room. They belonged to my grandma. The oldest one is from 1968 and there's a good pile of #80s crazyness as well but the drafting details are always awesome.The new ones, my addition to The Collection, are all over the place🐒. The chunk missing is on my bed. I like to "read them" before I go to sleep. Old or new, there are always at least 2-3 things I want to sew from each of them! I have started posting the contents in my Isntragram Stories. The old ones are too good to be enjoyed just by myself and I need to sell/donate/find a good home for the plus size magazines because sadly I don't have any plus size ladies to sew for anymore 🙁 . #patternaddict #patterncollection #Burdafangirl #Burdacollection #burdachallenge2018

#burdachallenge2018 isn’t just about the magazine patterns! @Olypateli reminds us that paper patterns count too 🙂 (I know I have loads of those too!)

Don’t just take my word for it, check out the #burdachallenge2018. Trust me, scrolling through the #burdachallenge2018 feed is the perfect cure to a dragging afternoon :-).

Looking forward Chris shared a BurdaStyle Feb 2018 preview post here: #burdachallenge2018: A quick review of Burdastyle 2/2018

And finally, I loved what Eleanor had to say about sewing with BurdaStyle

I’d love to hear from you too. If you have a post you’d like me to add in the next roundup please drop me an email through the Contact Me page.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Until next time, Happy Sewing!

Peace and love,

Hila

PS. Goes without saying that this is not a sponsored post. I just really love BurdaStyle patterns and the sewcial conviviality that comes with engaging in creative pursuits as a group.

  1. Such a variety of posts and reasons for taking part in the challenge. I must confess that I haven’t bought a Burda magazine in twenty-odd years, but the tracing never put me off back then…..I might have less patience nowadays, though:)
