    Congratulations on winning the Summer Sloper. I am so glad yours won, I don’t think it was too difficult, it was the only one that seemed to have used that sloper! (Apart from your other top). The neon colour and that zip detail really gave the pattern a new life and interesting turn. Well done!

      Thank you very much for your lovely and cheering words Irina! I was really sad since they didn’t chose your dress for the finale…! Your dress is awesome and you are such a great seamstress, – and I love your work!

      Hi Irina,

      To give you a better understanding of a sloper. It’s pattern block that can be adjusted into multiple styles. The sloper is a basic block for measurement on the body and fashion sketch. A sloper is not suppose to look exactly like the basic sloper pattern block. It’s there to help make adjustments and alterations to your specific design. That is what this contest is all about. The people who have submitted their designs, did just that. As well as myself. On multiple posts you have said that no one used the sloper, but they did. They altered and adjusted if to their specific design. It’s very unprofessional to continue to put the other designers down as well as myself. I am just speaking for the rest of the people who feel the same way as I do. If you have a negative comment keep it to yourself. There is also a sloper kit that Burdastyle has made to purchase for a better understanding of a sloper. I myself have purchased the sloper kit and I understand why Burda chose the contestants that they did. This is a contest not everyone can win. With that said I would suggest purchasing the sloper kit, that way you may understand the contest a little better

    I purchased the Pleated Blouse 06/2014 and the test square doesn’t match. I have set the printer to A4 and I have printed out several PDF patterns with no problem. Can you tell me if there is a mistake in the 4" test sq? According to my measurement is is 4 5/8" square not 4". Thank you!! Susan

      Hi Susan,
      I’m not sure if I can help, but the only thing I can think about is that it’s very important to print actual size, and not “fit to page”. You can check this out under printer properties. Wishing you good luck!

    Hi Ellen. Did you have anything in particular in mind for the Cowboy Costumes? For females and males? Adults? I remember seeing some in one of the old Burda’s, but before I look again, it would be great to have an idea what you may need. Rita.

    Hello Ellen It is so great to hear from you. True, I haven’t spent much time sewing and looking into projects of others lately. You know, I just moved from Hungary to the States… and therefore have many things to do to get organised. However, after so many weeks without sewing, I have to admit, I start to miss it. The only problem still is, that now that I DO have a sewing room in our new house… there is still the table missing! What a huge problem. So therefore, I’m desperately trying to find a table that fits the room and my needs ;O> ! I have to spend more time here again…. Have a great week! Brigitte

I’m glad to hear that you soon will be able to enjoy your hobby again :-) I couldn’t live without my sewing machine…! Have a fabulous week and looking forward to see one of your new project made in US ;-))

    Hi Ellen I was wondering if you can help me.I would like to make this dress…http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/jersey-dress-022013 I know you have made it. Does it pull down at the neckline?

      Hi Sarahsdaughter, I remember this was a little tricky, but I think I hand-stitches the the knot over the neckline. You can try with needles first and then you will see if it feels right. I hope this will be a little helpful for you. I have just finished another dress with a similar knot – and for this dress I have done like I explain.. Wish you good luck! :)

      Oh nice! I hope to travel to Spain one day. For now, we are going to try me on a short flight, and if I am feeling okay, we will fly to Vegas in March! :-) Now to loose those Christmas pounds so my clothes fit!!!

      I have to share, I was so excited today, I found heel bar buckles at a great price that I’ve been trying to find at a reasonable price. Someone told me to try a western place, and there is an Equine Emporium 30 minutes away!! So happy!!!

      Spain is nice, but it’s too cold there now so the Canary Island like Tenerife is wonderful in wintertime.
      I hope you will feel okay flying to Vegas – what a dream!! Cheers my friend – you will manage!! ♥

    Hi Ellen, I have been really busy with visitors lately and haven’t had time to comment on all of your lovely projects. I love the pale blue cardigan in particular and the colour of the knit really does look great on you. That is such a nice cardigan pattern. I see that you are sewing for a sunny holiday. Have fun and I look forward to seeing what you have made. I am about to start sewing for a cold holiday which is fun too. I am going to be going on a cruise around Great Britain and Northern France in May and then I am going to Stockholm for 5 days. I know the weather will be warm for everyone over there but for me, it will be cold.

I think you will have a wonderful journey – just enjoy! Sewing is nice no matter if it’s winter or summer and I enjoy every moment I have for sewing :-) I like Stockholm very much and we have friends living there. By the way – did your son enjoy his trip to Bergen at Christmas?

      My son Matt didn’t end up going to Bergen because his friend and his family decided to go to Reykjavik for a week over the New Year holiday season and they asked him to join them. Matt absolutely loved Reykjavik and had an amazing time there. He bought me back a lovely scarf that can become a hat. He said the art and craft industry in Iceland was so innovative. I have bought up my 2 children to appreciate art and craft and they really love it as adults too. The reason I want to go to Stockholm is to find some information about my Grandmothers family who immigrated to New Zealand in the late 1880’s. My great grandmother came from a lace making family, so the fine arts are in our blood and I want to see where they lived as I have an address in the old town. It will be lovely to see where all this happened. My daughter is very artistic as is my son but they both have jobs which mean that art and craft is purely a hobby and pleasure. Do your children like art too??

    • Image7_large

      Feb 8, 2014, 07.50 AMby Ellen Hatteland

      What an interesting choice! Reykjavik is fantastic – and for sure a lot of the modern art and fashion are invented there. The scarf you got seems very modern :)
      That’s wonderful schnui – to have genes from Stockholm! I hope you will be lucky and find more interesting history from you grandmothers family.
      I haven’t spend that much time studying art and craft, so my sons are not that interested, but for sure they like history and like visiting new places and historical places when travelling :)
