BurdaStyle Top Picks :: Week of 3/8-3/14

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend.  Mine was fairly productive.  I sewed up a new pillowcase for my body pillow.  The previous one I’d had for several years and was looking pretty sad, so I took one of my thrift store sheets and sewed one up.  Pretty simple, so I won’t be sharing it here, but I do have a post prepared about making a new lampshade for one of our living room lights!  I used linen… of course!

BurdaStyle top picks are numerous today!  Lots of goodies last week :)


These are garments that I particularly like and would love to wear myself. I usually just “favorite” them on BurdaStyle, but I’ve decided to make it a regular thing to feature them on my blog so I could share the inspiration and applaud the talent of the people who made them!

Swallowed By The Sea

Beautiful color!


Moss shirt
by imvisible

I really like how this top fits with the cowl neckline and the tight band around the hips.  Great drape!


Do the Yellow Petal Shuffe!!!
by littlewren

This is actually a dress, but I wanted to use the picture that had a detail shot of that fantastic bodice.  She copied a dress she liked but was too expensive and drafted her own version. (Btw, that beautiful flower field she’s standing in is in China!)


Heidi in Roses

Great print on that fabric!  Great fit. Plus–pockets!!


First drafted Power Skirt!

Love those pockets!!


Satin dress with a lace collar
by AsiaMc

So pretty.  Be sure to click this link and see the close-up photos of the lace collar beautifully hand-made by her mother.


Refashioned shorts
by Lily_Bart

So cute!  Made from a pair of men’s dress pants. 


Poplin Dress
by SewBissy

Drafted the pattern herself.  Love the gathers at the top and bottom of the bodice!


Cascades McPlaiderson

A sophisticated ruffle!


Clear as Mud-Cloth Dress
by BeNew

Beautiful blue and I love the tribal print on the skirt of the dress.  Is it just me or was there a blue theme going on with these picks today? :)
