My latest Minerva Crafts Blogger Network make – a cosy Burda 7148 sweatshirt dress.

Hi everyone and Happy New Year to you all!

I just wanted to let you know that my latest post as part of the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network is now up on their  website.   It’s the Burda 7148 sweatshirt dress and is perfect for this cold start to 2018. I used a gorgeous loop-back sweatshirt fabric for this one and it was perfect for this pattern.


I needed to make several adjustments to make this dress work for me, but it all turned out great in the end. I will leave a link here to the full review over on the Minerva Blogger Network page, where I talk  through all the alterations that I made and there are lots more photos too.


Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you over at Minerva!

Take care, and I’l be back soon,
