Congratulations JJ! Everyday we are impressed by the work of our members and this day is no different. Her incredible “Blue plaid with Microsuede Yoke Skirt” variation of the Sidonie has won her two books: Couture Sewing Techniques by Claire B. Shaeffer and The Practical Guide to Patternmaking For Fashion Designers; Juniors,Misses and Women by Lori A. Knowles. We hope that these will inspire her to come up with more amazing creations! We had so many incredible entries into the Sew-Along Mini-Challenge, but her variation on the Sidonie skirt blew us, along with the voters, away! Though everyone’s creations were amazing, we would like to give an honorable mention to Kasia26’s “Rosy Sidonie” for coming in a close second, congrats Kasia26! We were so impressed with the imaginative ways all the members took the original pattern and changed it into something of their own. We are so proud of the BurdaStyle community and all their hard work with this! We are excited to see what creations you will all come up with next! Congratulations again JJ, it truly is an amazing skirt!

    It was truly an honor to receive votes from you guys. I’m sure that I will get more inspiration from these two books especially the pattern making one. I only own one pattern book in my little sewing library. I’m super excited. Thank you so much, everyone.
