BurdaStyle Top Picks :: January

BurdaStyle Top Picks are garments that I particularly like and would love to wear myself. I usually just “favorite” them on BurdaStyle, but now I 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!

Be A Gift Dress
by Ophelia K

Definitely digging the shawl and bow collar on this dress.  Chic and feminine.

A very British Trench Coat…
by handmadebyfreya

I favorited this one because I actually own this pattern!  It’s helpful to see someone who’s already made it and can provide good feedback.

Just lovely.  The polka dots are the perfect and sweet detail.

BurdaStyle Top Picks :: November Week 3

It’s snowing in Seattle and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet!  I feel like I woke up in a strange, parallel universe where winter exists in Seattle.

This weekend was the Quilt, Craft, Sew Festival and while it was smaller than I expected, I did come home with some great fabric for really cheap!  And, inspired by purchases, I sewed up a new top that actually came out really well.  I’ll share more once I get some good pictures of it.

Sidenote:  I always feel weird posting Top Picks back to back because it means I haven’t updated my blog for an entire week.  But then I think, hey, at least I’m posting something!  So there you go :)
