I have been trying to upload a picture of the dress I made based on the Burda Pattern A-line Dress 09/2012 #151
which I had purchased. When I try to enter the name of the pattern on which my dress is based, the site does not recognize it and keeps asking to enter it, and does not allow to continue and publish the photo.
This is not my creation, is just a picture of a dress made by following Burda’s pattern. What should I do to have the site recognize the name of the pattern?

    Hi Manu1717,

    I apologize for this frustrating experience. This can be quite picky.

    Try leaving off the variation number (#151). I also find that typing slow helps.

    Example: A-line Dress 09/2012

    If you continue to have difficulties go ahead and publish your project without linking to the pattern. Once your project is posted let me know and I will go in and try to link the pattern from my end.

    I apologize for this inconvenience.

      OK, I tried many times but no luck. I was able to save it as a draft only by marking it as my own creation, which is not.
      If you could see my saved draft and edit it, so that it shows that it is based on Burda’s A-line Dress 09/2012 #151, I would really appreciate it. Then it could be published—-it is a great pattern and I really wanted to share the result I had sewing it.
      Thanks for your help.

    Hi Manu1717,

    I have published your project.

    You must check the box that reads: “(!) I certify that I am the creator of this project and this project abides by the BurdaStyle member project definition.” This means that you are the creator of the garment, that you sewed/made the project.

    In order to post a project on the website a user must confirm that he/she created the project themselves, even if he/she did not personally design the style and/or pattern.

    I hope this helps.

    Beautiful dress!

      Thank you so much!!! I did actually think it meant I had to confirm I had created the pattern, not the garment… Thank you again, I am so happy it could be published!
