BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern Book Review

I am very excited to share with all of you about this amazing book. If you are a member of BurdaStyle or follow them on Facebook, you must have heard about this book. I received it more or less two weeks ago. I bought it on amazon, here is the link.
This book has five base patterns plus fourteen step-by-step project variations - all of which include in depth patternmaking and sewing instructions.

Here are the five base patterns:

1. Louisa Drop-Waist Dress (1920's style)

2. Frank Button -Down Shirt (1940's style)

3. Elizabeth Gathered-Waist Dress (1950's style)

4. Jamie Shift Dress (1960's style)

5. Jeans Stirrup Pants (1960's style)

The book is really beautiful, each chapter begins with sketches of the garment and must-have accessories of the decade, descriptions of signature silhouettes, designers you should know and style icons.

And here are the dress and top variations that I am going to work on my next sewing project,
Jacky Dress (1960's)

Margaux Evening Dress

Heather Bustier Dress (1980's) and Veronica Geometric Top (1980's)

Lilian Blouse (1950's)
Beside all the dresses and tops, I also want to make a shirt for my husband. And before I say goodbye for today post, I just want to let you know that I am working on my first dress from this book. My first choice is Jacky Dress, I had 2 yards of lace fabric and 2 yards of silk crepe-de-chine in my stash.


~Happy Sewing~
