Inspiration Station

This beautiful book has just been released and I spent a little time at Barnes and Noble drooling over it while Adelle played with their train set, Am I the only one who bribes her daughter with a train set to go to a book store so I can drink coffee and enjoy flipping through a book for free?
This book features 5 patterns and then 70 different versions of what members of Burdastyle made. If that isn't inspiring I don't know what is. I've had a little bit of a fear of changing a pattern but it opens up so many doors if you tweak just a little. Adelle's princess dress was the first one I really changed and I was pretty proud of how it turned out.
I'm working on Adelle's Birthday/Christmas dress this week, it's a vintage pattern as you may remember I used it to make a dress that got shredded in my washer. It's okay, I've gotten past it (repressing feelings). I'm using a technique that makes sewing a bodice a MILLION times easier! I'll be sharing it with you soon!
I've asked for this Book for Christmas, Anyone else jumping on the fast moving train towards Christmas?

  1. Absolutely we are thinking about Christmas. One thing I would really like is a Hoopnotica travel hoop and dvd. You are so inspiring with your many sewing projects! Someday I will learn to use my sewing machine like a pro.
