Congratulation to Marina_Glory! Her awesome Recycled Flannel Shirt-Dress/Skirt has won the Recycle Mini Challenge. He ingenuity set her ahead, but there were two who were very close behind. Erdroren’s “All I Need Is Uggs… Liz’s Recycled Fleece Liz” came in a close second and Prudencerabbit’s “From Coverlet to Esther—RECYCLED” was right behind Erdroren. Marina_glory will receive a copy shop printout of a pattern of her choice, a $25 fabric voucher and of course, lots of goodies from BurdaStyle. So congratulations to all, this was such a great challenge with absolutely incredible entries! These entries have certainly inspired me (as I’m sure it has others) to think outside of the box. Congratulations once again!

The Winner of the Technical Design Contest is...

720fa332bc37faf6954146213a70f03a085bec66_medium

So, it was really hard for us to pick the winning design, so hard in fact that we had to send our choices to the team in Germany to help us make the final call. We have come to an international conclusion. We would like to announce the winner, congratulations to Spiderlily! Though the others were great, she got everything correct, especially the tricky leg holes. What set her design apart from the rest is that the leg holes in her design were not cut too high. Ceregana came in second and inge came in third. Ziancabug earned our honorable mention. Thank you for all of the submissions. We were so glad to have to work so hard to pick the winner, it truly is a testament to your skills.

Technical Drawing Contest- Win $50!

Fc000db44590ecd21aab60db024ad8ce4882d91a_medium

That’s right, we felt it was time for another contest. Get your pen and pencil out, warm up your hand, pull out the paper. We are going to be looking for your best technical drawings. As some of you may have noticed, there is no technical drawing associated with the Alison swimsuit. We thought it would be a great opportunity for all of you out there who are not only a whiz at the sewing machine, but also have the sketching skills of DaVinci, to showcase your talents. We are excited to see all you multitalented members out there. You have until the 18th of July to send us your best technical drawing of the Alison swimsuit. The winner will receive $50! So send’em in to us at team@burdastyle.com and good luck!

We hope you all had a lovely Easter: that the Bunny brought you some chocolate, you got to wear a pretty dress, kiss some loved ones, and enjoy a little sunshine. Judging from our Inbox, many of you got into the Easter spirit by partaking in our very own BurdaStyle Egg Hunt! Many of you found all 10 eggs—Congratulations! Instead of a hat, we drew our three winners from an Easter basket, and they are: First place, kallers; Second Place, ziancabug; Third Place, charlotte287. The Easter Bunny and BurdaStyle are putting $100, $50, and $25 fabric vouchers in our winners’ baskets. Congrats to the big winners, and thanks so much to the rest of you for participating in our Egg Hunt. It would be no fun with out you!

Even though the Hunt is over, we know some of you still want to know where those last pesky eggs were hiding. Here they are:
