Sew Style, Fashion and Home

Im not really sure how to start this post? So I'll just come out with it...... I'M IN A MAGAZINE!

Basically they got in touch and asked if I'd like to do a bit of pattern hacking for them!

And well we all know how much I love a good pattern hack!

Anyway the magazine is called sew style , fashion and home and the piece features me and meg from pigeon wishes . We both used different Burda patterns that come free with the magazine. My pattern was 6773 which was a basic shift dress. This was quite a challenge for me because I'm not a huge fan of a dress in that style! 

Anyway I just thought I'd share this with you because it feels like such a huge achievement for me. And its pretty nice to see my name in print with my picture next to it! FYI my little niece cannot get over the fact that aunty frank is in a real magazine that you can buy from the shop!!!   

Anyway I'm feeling pretty proud of myself! And I'm feeling extra proud because I've also been put on the Feedspot list of top 100 sewing bloggers and because I've got over 100 subscribers on my youtube channel! So not get to soppy or anything but thank you to all you guys who have been reading, watching and following me, I love interacting with you all and you guys make this blogging thing pretty awesome.

Anyway thats enough before I start crying and stuff, but here's where you can get your hands on a copy of the magazine :

Or from WHSmiths 

Its £9.99 which is pretty pricey but it comes with three burda patterns, a pattern for a liberty print blouse and loads of other projects like a Missoni style top, a Boatneck top [making this] Capes, Bags, Home accessories and loads more!

Plus if you buy it you can steal my pattern hack and then we can be twins

Much Love




  1. Well done Frankie. Bit pricey for me but well done you. Get it framed!

  2. Ah well done Frankie, it is a nice feeling isn't it? You should wear a shift dress more BTW. Jo x

  3. Ah well done, I got my magazine the other day and recognised your name! Great make too. xx

    1. Aww it makes me very pleased to hear that there's a least one copy in the world that isn't in possession of a member of my family!

  4. Congrats, it looks awesome, you are one clever bunny!! Will look out for it when I go into town next x
