BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern: Mastering Iconic Looks from the 1920s to 1980s
Vintage Looks Meet Modern Fashion
Dior's New Look silhouette. Jackie Kennedy's sheath dress. Madonna's bustier. Fashion trends come and go, but certain iconic styles never fade. Make them for yourself with BurdaStyle's new guide to sewing fashion through the decades. Five adaptable master patterns for tops, dresses, and pants are transformed into nineteen unique projects for both women and men that draw inspiration from key fashion moments. These influential looks—from the Roaring Twenties to the Awesome Eighties—are all modernized and reinterpreted for today's sewing enthusiasts.
BurdaStyle, the world's largest online community of people who sew, is synonymous with stylish sewing and high-quality patterns. In this follow-up to The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook, they provide step-by-step instructions and techniques for customizing the enclosed master patterns into new design variations, all perfectly fitted for you. You'll also get a taste of fashion history—the essential designers, signature trends, and style icons from each era—to help you channel your inner Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, or Yves Saint Laurent.
BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern combines the best of fashion from the past with an updated approach to sewing. Whether you prefer a slim-fit pant, the perfect men's button-down, or a versatile shift dress, this book offers a classic collection that will last you a lifetime.
