We want YOU to get more involved, so we are inviting you to step up to a new challenge.



We are in the midst of designing a new variation, a cocktail dress version, of the Malissa dress, which will post on November 17th and will include the original pattern plus instructions on how to modify it.



Next to that variation we would love to see your idea of what the Malissa dress could look like as a cocktail dress.



Design and sew a variation of the Malissa dress and send a photo to team@burdastyle.com . The dress with the most votes will be part of our professional photo shoot along with the BurdaStyle creation.



Additionally, the winner of the contest will receive a CD of high resolution photographs from the photo shoot, a look book with prints and cards with the image on it for you to hand out to friends.



Send in your photo of your variation to team@BurdaStyle.com by the 23rd of September, along with a brief description on the pattern changes you have done.
TIP: Keep it simple. If you are the winner, we will ask you to create the how to explaining the pattern changes as well!!

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!

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:

BurdaStyle Easter Egg Hunt

Hippity hop, hippity hop!! Eggs and baskets and pretty dresses and lace gloves and ham and cookies! All of these can only mean one thing, the Easter Bunny and all his fun is here again! We love Easter: decorating eggs, grass and budding trees, warmer weather and longer days… Super yay!

The Easter Bunny and the BurdaStyle team have joined forces to bring you a good old-fashioned Easter egg hunt. We’ve hidden 10 eggs around the website, and will be giving clues through the week. Eggs will be in picture files within content created by BurdaStyle. Three lucky winners will receive a $100, $50, or $25 fabric voucher.

Before midnight Saturday March 22, send us ONE email only to answers@burdastyle.com, listing where you found all of your eggs (ie: Osman Tie, Picture 3 or “Octoberfest!” Blogpost). Do not send an email as you find each egg, but rather gather all eggs into your basket, and then send us an email telling us everything you found.

Remember to include your name, user name, email address, telephone number and postal address.

Winners will be picked from the pool of people who find the most eggs.

You can view the official rules and regulations here.

Happy hunting!!!

Here’s your first hint:

Easter showers bring May flowers! You can stop singing “Rain, Rain go away! Come again some other day…” because you just made what?

We Proudly Present....

This is a big week for us. So many big decisions leave us ready for the weekend, which will be just as eventful, considering that we are almost ready to launch the new web design.

Again, we have to express our big amazement with your work. We received lots of very creative submissions with very well constructed patterns.
It makes us realize how much potential is out there and hope that we find more and more ways to bring that to our site.

Enough of the waiting, here is our winner for the design/pattern contest:

Somwan Molzer also known as JJ.

She is the winner of $500 and her pattern will be produced as free download for all BurdaStyle members.

Her Retro inspired blouse is convincing in all criterias. The design, even though very developed leaves room for pattern changes and adaptation. It would work as a simpler version, without the ruffles just as well as replacing them with piping.

Her pattern is technically sound and was presented in a very clean and understandable way. All left to do is create the PDF out of it…

We feel that her pattern is a great addition to our ever growing collection and we hope to see many variations…
