Sweet Shard’s Sharadha had her highs and lows sewing this Tied Shirt Dress but in the end she made this fabulously chic version! She used a beautiful pinstriped fabric that resulted in a dress that she kick back and wear with sneakers or dress up with heel. Read more about her sewing process here.

This is Sharon’s muslin fit of her Drawstring Romper – she added a dart and lengthen the bodice piece, so now it’s time to cut in her pink silk! Check back on her blog and instagram page to see the finished result.

Mary from Idle Fancy just got finished with some adorable kitchen updates that you can see on her instagram and now debuts her finished version of our Plus Size Wrap Blouse! She sewed it up in this beautiful rose printed woven that Gertie did for JoAnn Fabrics. Read more about Mary’s blouse here!

“My party goblin ain’t dead yet … and it needs party clothes” – Sasha from Second Piano. Love this quote, and love her version of our Side Zipper Skirt even more! Everything from the sparkling fabric to the contrasting zipper – this skirt sure will be the life of the party.

Heidi over at Elegance and Elephants made our Girl’s Strap Dress in this gorgeous embroidered cotton that she picked up from her local fabric shop, and the end result is adorable and summery! Read more about this girl’s dress project here on her blog.

Dream.Cut.Sew’s Diane tackles this Trench Coat pattern for her July project, and my oh my isn’t is wonderful! The drapey blush fabric was the perfect selection and it looks stunning on Diane. Read more about her trench coat here!

After a month of no sewing, Julie from Sewing Julie whipped up this summery striped Dress pattern. This pattern is her most repeated dress pattern, and I can see why! Read her pattern review here to learn more.

Victoria Ann Meyers took on the adventure that is our Bodice Top sewing pattern. She may have second guessed her canvas striped fabric, but in the end it turned out awesome. Read more about her bodice journey in this highly informative and equally entertaining post.

Bravo Burda Influencers! I can’t even put into words how much I love seeing and reading about each of your individual projects and how you divide and conquer – can’t wait to see all your August Burda pattern creations.

Happy Sewing!
