Book Giveaway: BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern


On December 13th, I was lucky enough to attend the Brooklyn book launch party for BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern. It was a lovely evening filled with fashion, fun, and opportunities to sew, and I was really excited to get the chance to check out the latest BurdaStyle book. As I flipped through the pages, I found item after item just begging to be added to my wardrobe: from 1920s drop-waist dresses to chic 1960s shifts, this book is definitely going to keep me sewing — and stylish — for a long time to come!

Vintage Looks Meet Modern Fashion

Dior’s New Look silhouette. Jackie Kennedy’s sheath dress. Madonna’s bustier. Fashion trends come and go, but certain iconic styles never fade. Make them for yourself with BurdaStyle’s new guide to sewing fashion through the decades. Five adaptable master patterns for tops, dresses, and pants are transformed into nineteen unique projects for both women and men that draw inspiration from key fashion moments. These influential looks — from the Roaring Twenties to the Awesome Eighties — are all modernized and reinterpreted for today’s sewing enthusiasts.
