If you have followed this blog for a while or watched my YouTube-channel, you know I’m a total Burdastyle fangirl. I hope I don’t come off as super boring in my pattern choices as I don’t venture out to a lot of indie designers (love them, but when it comes to the actual patterns, they are usually not my cup of tea) or try whatever current, buzzed about, pattern.
With Burdastyle I know what I get; great fit (for me), high-level designs (very important for me, the basics I can draft myself), fantastic value (so many patterns in one magazine) and not to forget – very sparse instructions (but we get what we pay for)!
So let’s take a look at some of the Burdastyle faves I’ve made in the last few years:
This dress is pure magic. It is so beautiful and drapes wonderfully on the body. I saved this fabric for years until I found this perfect pattern.
For me, this is the perfect slim fit trouser pattern. Fitted, but not super tight. Compared to Closet Case Files’ new cigarette pant, the Burdastyle version has more ease, which I prefer. Plus this pattern has some nice design features, such flap front pockets and separate cuff pieces.
I think I have found the perfect blouse pattern! Front and back darts give this blouse a beautiful shape and it has the perfect amount of ease.
This pattern is a great example of how Burdatyle manages to add fun details to their knit top patterns. I need to make another one soon, mine is showing some wear on the fabric and looks a little lacklustre, unfortunately. But a great pattern!
This is the best skirt pattern ever! Just look the pockets – brilliant! Plus it is very flattering and elongates my short lower body. I love this skirt so much.
