#burdachallenge2018 March Round up

Can you believe we are already into the fourth month of the year! Its April 1st and I LOVE April! Because April is my birthday month :-). Its also the first proper spring month too. I digress.

There are so many patterns added to my sewing list from all the fantastic makes I am seeing on the #burdachallenge2018 feed on IG as well as the accompanying blog posts.

Wis (whatisew.be) made one of my favourite roll neck patterns from 09/2010 issue: Burda Turtle Neck Top Thanks for sharing a tip on how to avoid tucks on the sleeve seam.

Simona (sewingadventuresintheattick.wordpress.com) braved the tracing to make a gorgeous top with colour blocking: Liberty BurdaStyle Frankenpattern 

Steely Seamstress is planning a  fantastic seventies vintage dress here – Sewing the Seventies .

Diane @DreamCutSew has killed two birds with one stone when she made this lovely belted  – Burda Waist Detail Top . The top was from Burdastyle ticking off her #burdachallenge2018 and also #makeyourstash which is a great challenge by TimetoSew.co.uk and PilarBear.com.

Maggie (magscreativemeanderings.blogspot.co.uk) made a peplum blouse that has me thinking of cheery cherry trees – March BurdaStyle Challenge.

I love Anne’s (compulsiveseamstress.com) impeccably made trousers: Short Trousers means cold ankles and Professor Plum.

Chris is just as fed up of winter as I am and is making a stand with this beautiful floral top : BurdaStyle 2/2018 114 Desperate Measures . Read about her Autumn to Spring Outfit.  

Maria (mhayek.blogspot.co.uk) sewed up a shirt dress with the most amazing fabric! Crazy Fabric Shirt Dress

Allison @allisoncsewing has one of the most inspiring feeds on IG and I love her faux wrap front dress. BurdaStyle 01/2018 118 Dress .

I went and traced out the knotted midi dress after seeing Allison’s version on IG – Knotted Midi Dress . She also has a picture tutorial for sewing the twisted front band which I found so helpful.

Fellow Minerva Maker @Topstitchrollhem ticked off her #burdachallenge2018 with this luscious tropical dress

I've made another tiny dress, but this one is for baby Olga 😊 Without any clear idea about sewing for babies I turned to #burdastyle patterns and found this super cute dress with many details that I love making.. Button down dress with collar, cap sleeves and combination of plated and gathered skirt 😍 Would love to make this one in grown up size 😊 I needed 0.5m of fabric for this little dress, so I took this cute stripes and herons cotton fabric I have in my stash from last season.. Sewing all these small parts was slightly nerve wracking for me, but in the end I'm satisfied with how it turned out 😍 . The pattern is no 145 from #burdastyle 07/2012.. . #burdastylegermany #burda #burdachallenge2018 #sewingaddict #fabriclove #sewingforbaby #sewingforgirls #handmadebabyclothes

If you have ever thought about  how to organise magazine patterns then check out this little clip that @lumisumu shared on IG. This is exactly what I need to do with my growing collection of magazines.

Remember to check out the #burdachallenge2018 for inspiration. Though IG has its limitations and annoyances – I appreciate the “translate text” options which means that language is not a barrier. There are many non-english speaking sewcialists also participating in this challenge and we are able to read about each other’s journeys, thoughts, joys and frustrations.

If you are also sewing with Burda to tick off your own personal goals then please share your journey & connect with others around the globe via #burdachallenge2018.

Looking forward – I love the April issue (which is a relief since it’s my birthday month :-).

However, between the holidays, my annual spring clean and Minerva Blogger Network makes, I cannot reasonably expect to sew more than a couple of items so my plans are reflective of this. So here are my plans….plus I need to catch up with unblogged makes 🙂

 

If you’d like to hear my thoughts on the latest April issue

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Peace and love,

Hila

  1. I love seeing all of these so much!! Thanks for organizing 🙂 I’m so behind, but hopefully will finish my February Burda this weekend… I think I’m skipping March and going straight April. It’s a good issue!

  2. Thank you for the kind words about my instagram – I’m a bit of a newbie to it and still finding my way. I do love the ability to follow hashtags now, great for finding fellow Burda fans, but there are a few more here too which is brilliant!
