BurdaStyle's Handpicked 2011
Sure, the old year is gone...but should it be forgotten?
If you're looking for sewing inspiration for the New Year, I can't think of anywhere better to turn. From couture-quality wedding dresses to casual clothes to wear on holiday, to adorably nutty student projects, some enterprising crafter has done it - and done it very well. Even better, they're willing to share their secrets.
Many of the patterns used are available for free or for a minimal cost on BurdaStyle, so there's very little disincentive to giving fashion sewing a try in the New Year.
Two years ago I made a resolution that I'd make my first ever dress. Sure, it took me eleven months to work up the courage- but I did it, and you can too.
