June 30

All my favorite bloggers have made their announcements, so I think it's about time that I speak up as well... I'm going to be a contributor for the BurdaStyle Book!

In May I was asked to submit a few sketches, including swatches, of possible pattern variations. It was a challenge since I haven't done any formal sketching before, but I printed out a croquis and got to work on many ideas that I later narrowed down to four submissions. Out of the four, one of my dress variations was chosen.
Now I am patiently awaiting the arrival of my fabric in the mail. I can't wait to see what they chose for me based off my swatch and description.
I am extremely excited about this project! Stay tuned...


  1. what are you going to be making?? looks like a dress or a blouse?
    it's exciting to know who is in it and can't wait to see what everyone does with the patterns!!

  2. Whoohey, congratulations! I wonder if we can publish our rejected skteches? Maybe not. Or maybe just the ones that bear no similarity to the original pattern and/or the chosen variation... (I'm VERY curious about the sketch in your picture...). Hm..
    (I do think your photo is ok though, I must add).

  3. that is ridiculously exciting!! :) congratulations!

  4. congratulations! how exciting! you so deserve to be in there :)

  5. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    You absolutely deserve this recognition!!

  6. i found you through a google search for the burdastyle book, i'm doing a blouse variation and i'm soooo curious about who else is playing!

    i wanted to play with a dress so badly, i've turned the blouse into a dress :)
