Sew ‘Burda’ Stylish

For those of you craving an online DIY forum, Burda Style may be just the site to stir your creativity! The online sewing community is a hub for sewing enthusiasts to chat on message boards, read sewing tips, post sewing patterns, and get free or low priced patterns in both regular and plus sizes.

There’s a ton of fantastic patterns and projects to seek inspiration from, including these amazing tights and this cute organizer. Users of Burda Style can also post photos of themselves modeling their finished projects, many of which are variations on the basic pattern. Check out my final project on Burda Style!

    I just spent an hour at work browsing through threadbanger and burdastyle! Good for my well-being, bad for my productivity.

    I love BurdaStyle– I’ve been sewing my own clothes since I was a kid, and have been a member on there since way before I knew about ModCloth! And I absolutely love that, as a clothing store, you’re endorsing the DIY side of it!
