Mermaid Dress by AnaJan

Added Nov 28, 2011

New York, New Yo...






For the month of November we had a prolific BurdaStyle member, Anajan, interning with us. Ana got a special glimpse into BurdaStyle last month seeing that we celebrated our book launch party, and in turn, we had the opportunity to see Ana at work! Case in point: Ana took our basic Peter Pan collar dress and turned it into a dress suit for a siren from the sea—or a cool lady who deserves a great dress which has enough integrity and complexity to wow a mathematician.

Ana has 135 projects and has shared 8 patterns (who can say that?) with us. Go Ana!

Material Notes

    Oh Ana, now I see the beautiful results of your paper sample you showed to me in November at the office.It looks as if you just stepped off the runway with all the technical detail. Perfect!

      Oh, I still remember that moment in the office, when we met. I was so so confused (or, to say – too concentrated on what I was doing? I’m such a nerd! ;).
      Thanks for the nice words, I really enjoyed making this dress.

      Oh, do try it, it’s so easy but so effective! And when you do, send me a note to tell me how it went.
