Window Shopping Patterns

Have you ever stopped by BurdaStyle.com?  Or purchased?  I confess I've never attempted a downloadable/printable pattern, but I will be doing a bit a bit more sewing this summer and I might just be tempted!

Would you like to see a few fun printable pattern finds?

I love this dress!  Something about the pockets and the color and the retro goodness...


There appear to be some fit problems with the top -- it looks too loose, does it not?  Perhaps the model is the wrong size?  Find the pattern here.

And then!  How sweet is this little girl pattern?  Totally love this photo with the black socks and shoes...


Find the pattern here.

And gosh!  So cute!  Is there anything better than a sailor babe?


Find the pattern here.

I might not be sewing lately, but I'm dreaming about sewing.  How about you?

  1. I never thought about an article of clothing not being the right size for the model. Usually I think to myself, "If it looks that bad on a model, I don't want to know how I'd look in it!" All three outfits are super cute though, I don't think I could pick a favorite!

    1. I think the only reason I thought the model might be the wrong size is because it seems so big on her -- but I always make a mock-up of a dress before cutting out the real deal :o). I need a dress for my SILS's wedding and I thought it might work, but now I'm leaning towards a variation of this oh-so-lovely-and-expensive dress: http://us.anthropologie.com/anthro/product/shopdress-occassion/26508226.jsp

  2. That Anthropologie dress is super cute! We just got a call from Jason yesterday asking Matt to be in the Sept wedding. I guess I'll be needing a dress too...but mine will need to accomodate a rather big belly...

    Anyway, I'm excited to see your creation : )

    1. Oh cool! Knowing my in-laws, this is going to be quite the wedding experience...and entertaining for those of us who get to stand on the sidelines :o). Have fun finding a dress! There are some cute maternity ones out there.
