Burda 6570 with Minerva.com

Hey friends,

I’ve finished what I would classify as the hardest project I’ve ever completed.  My main write up on it will be featured on the Minerva.com website early next year.  It’s the last project I’ll do for them for a couple of months.  I have my own fabric piling up with projects I’m dying to do.  I’m excited to get started on those and share them with you.

But first . . . this.

This was the hardest project ever.  I hated the pattern and would not recommend it.  It says it’s for intermediate sewists but I call B.S,  I think you need to have made a lined jacket before attempting this one and/or an expert.  Brocades are always tricky fabric and I’ve never attempted a lined jacket before.  It caused so many moments of struggle, but it’s finished.

I love the result and can’t wait to hear what you think!

I'm a mom to five, a wife to one and love sewing. I learned when I was a little girl but returned to it in full force in the last couple of years. The process of creating things keeps me sane. I set a lofty goal for myself, one project a week for a year. I'm four months in and it's awesome. I'm amazed at how much I've learned and improved. Set a goal to learn something new and devote weekly time to it. You will be amazed at the results.
