Truly annoyed that I missed the Limi Feu show in Paris last season. The collection was beautiful, playing around with heavy fabrics and even heavier silhouettes. The flat shoes were an elegant touch whilst the pink hair showed a more playful side to the collection. I'm already looking forward...

This dress looks equally stunning in a classic solid or modern print. You could even go with a 70s print for a different look! Your imagination and aesthetic preferences should lead the way on picking color or pattern–have fun! I do want to mention that because of the pattern pieces in the...

The daughter of Yohji Yamamoto, Limi feu—the designer's assumed name. Asymmetry is in her blood, dark colours, and layering just seem to be what is expected. Yet, you had to notice that she uses her own inspiration and the runway show was her take on a modern rebel with rock-a-billie...

Remember I said to take note of your desired skirt length measurement? Generally most 40s dresses end just below the knee, although I tend to make it slightly above because that's a more flattering length on me. Take the front skirt piece and measure it from the top to the hem, subtracting 1...

Posted by Sophie on Thursday, August 30th, 2012 I've been on a swing dress kick for a while... remember? Ever since I laid my eyes on swinging frocks on runway shows from Dolce & Gabbana to Ted Baker (left), I was determined to get in one. LOL! Well, my Calvin Klein Sleeveless Woven Dress...

Until then, here's the list of supplies to start gathering: Swing Dress Pattern: There are two forms you can purchase the Sense and Sensibility Swing dress pattern in, printed or as a download. If you're familiar with the way BurdaStyle formats their print-at-home patterns, you should have...

After going over the final poll results for the sew-along, we have a clear winner: the swing dress ! (A big thank you to everyone who took a moment to cast their vote!) I have to admit, I'm more than a bit nervous about leading a sew-along, having never done anything like this before. So I do...
