Giveaway Winners Times Two

I have been a very blessed girl very blessed. The sweet Philippa over at Gloria & Me was so generous to send me this Burda Style Magazine. Thank you Philippa! I have never laid eyes on these magazines and I am enamored with it's stylish offerings. I also like the fabric choices they make for the sample garments...sometimes the sample garments shown in magazines are not all that know. 
I am a little bit intimidated by the pattern sheet and I have great respect for anyone who uses these frequently! I welcome any and all advice that would help me through the process!

  1. Congrats on the Burda mag! I usually find that once you start tracing a piece it's not to bad keeping track of it. Finding all the pieces in the mess of lines can be annoying. I usually keep the magazine open to the instruction page for the pattern I'm tracing. Then I can refer to it for how many pieces I've got done. And of course remember to add seam allowance. :)

    1. Oh right...the seam allowance!! Thanks for the reminder..and the tips!

  2. I usually outline my size in a thicker pen before I trace it. It helps a lot. Also, use a double tracing wheel to mark seam allowances directly on to fabric - it saves a lot of time, but you have to remember to write NSA (no seams allowed) on all the pieces you trace, as if you make the garment again it's guaranteed you will forget about them!

    1. Thanks again Philippa! For the Burda magazine and now the tips!
