I cannot get over how fast time is flying by! We about to enter June marking the halfway point of this challenge and wow I am so inspired by all the lovely and beautiful creations I am seeing around me!
So first of all, my apologies for missing out last months round up – between my triathlon training and allotment season – time hasn’t been my best friend. Still, better late than never eh? Ok. Let’s do this!
Maggie’s beautiful chic shirtdress from April 2018 issue is just divine. You can read the blog post here magscreativemeanderings.blogspot.co.uk.
This jumpsuit from the May 2018!
The simplicity of this top paired with the eyelets and rope makes it stunning.

Here's my #burdachallenge2018 May. I must admit I'm falling a little behind with making a Burda item of clothing recently as I've been quite uninspired by the last 2 issues so I've been exploring other patterns. But this was a quick and cute make in the spirit of continuing the challenge #madebyme #sewing #create#handmadewithlove #handmadewardrobe #instasewing #instasewers #barcelonafashion
Anne (TheCompulsiveSeamstress.com) has been sewing up some lovely cool chic linen trousers here Its The Real Thing. She also made the cutest mini James Dean denim jacket for a 5 year old – read all about it here Mini James Dean. And a pair of trousers for her daughter here – A Long Time Coming. (The mini denim jacket has been added to my kids sew list :-).
Meg has been making some fabulous mash-ups of the jumpsuit from the May 2018 issue here – Megs Magazine Mash Up. The dress she made for her April mash up is lovely with the contrast flounce. Read about it here – Meg’s Magazine Mash Up Reveal 04/2018
Also, did you know that Meg’s mashups are also sewalongs for the patterns she is making? I find this a very helpful thing.
Chris has been supplying constant inspiration and motivation by sewing up a flounce top from the April 2018 issue. I love her take on it here Desperate Measures Burdachallenge 2018. Chris also made a twofer autumn to spring outfit here – Burdastyle 11/17 and 2/18 #108: From Autumn to Spring (#burdachallenge2018).
Kamila (swarmofchickadees.wordpress.com) has made 2 fabulous tops which you can read about here – must.sew.shirts., or, how the #burdachallenge continues.
I am smitten with these crisp summer perfect shorts sewn up by Diane for her May #burdachallenge2018 make. Read about them here BurdaStyle Shorts with tie waist detail.
Ellen (EllensSewing.com) sewed up a sheath dress with contrast sleeves. I cant tell you how much I love and admire Ellen’s style and prolific sewing. Check out her post here: Tie Front Sheath Dress. Her version of the wrap blouse from the February 2018 issue is a lovely creation: Tie Wrap Blouse.
Looking forward here is what I am planning on sewing for the coming month (time allowing :-).
Remember to check out #burdachallenge2018 on Instagram for loads of inspiration, motivation and good old fun!
As we are entering the sixth month, I will be doing a check in with my goals. I find reflecting, and reworking goals to be an important aspect of planning. AI will be sharing my thoughts on that at the end of June.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Peace and love,
