Well this is a pretty exciting collaboration. I’ve been sewing for decades, so I don’t need this, but I want to encourage anyone to take the leap. If for no other reason than the recycling/upcycling/money saving possibilities of knowing how to sew.
That’s awesome! We’d love to see some of your work
My most recent projects were a pair of pants, a sports bra, and this little beauty (unfinished in photo)
I grew up sewing on my mama’s old Singer. Her family was filled with quilters. I made clothes for my barbie dolls. 13 years ago a daughter talked me into making a quilt for her son. Aww, so cute. I can do one, right? But … now she is on her 7th child and I am behind one quilt already. Ha. Gotta get back to it.
I also need to shorten a really cool dress and don’t want to lose the fabric at the bottom … But that’s another story / project.
I recently aquired a machine from the 1940s that I’m nearly finished restoring. Itll be my first foray into sewing but im super excited to try it out!
I haven’t sewn many large projects before but I think it’s always exciting to learn more skills in life!
The news of this collaboration is wonderful.I have some basic sewing knowledge. I’ve known Burda’s magazines since I was little, my aunt often used it to make many dresses. I have also bought Burda Style magazines many times and I’ve tried to sew the simplest clothes, but since I haven’t attended a sewing course, I still have several doubts and a lot to learn.
Wow this is a cool deal. I started to sew in 4-h. When i was 15 yrs old on my moms old machine. I currently have two machines one was my aunts its a old hard cover machine which i need to get it serviced and a brother digital machine I need to get back into sewing… i honestly haven’t sewn since making my boys their rag quilts 5 yrs ago so this would be exciting and fun! Id love to make my own clothes again.
I’ve never tried making my own clothes before, this would be such an exciting thing to win.
I would love to try learning to see my own clothes! I love the idea as well if upcycling some of my outfits I no longer wear
Yes I’ve tired but never got the hang of it! I would love to try again
I’ve sewn a quilt but have never tried a piece of clothing because it seems intimidating!
What an amazing collaboration! I sew now and then and would love to become as confident in sewing as I am with crochet
Congrats to @Ribblr on the partnership!!
I hand sew plushies, I started a bit over 10yrs ago, but I havent done much in a while.
Ever since I was little I had wanted to sew clothes (for my dolls) but I have never done a garment (even though I have a sewing machine!!!)
I’ve been sewing for a while and am excited to get into doing more professional looking clothes
I had sewn when i was younger, but always had help on those. I ended up sewing a gown for a ball i had attended, with my grandmother! I however am usually lost when sewing on my own and would love to learn more! I believe it is becoming a lost skill, and something that needs to be taught once again.
I remember using patterns from burda, to create my own clothes, when I was younger. I haven’t done it in a while, but I would like to start sewing again.
I’ve sewn before, but mostly cosplays! I would like to start making my own street clothes
