My Other News
The project that I couldn’t discuss before has been announced (finally!). So, here it is: I’m going to be part of the first BurdaStyle Book!
The idea, as they explain, is that they introduce 5 new patterns, and show how to make a couple variations of each pattern. Then they show some other people’s variations of each pattern for inspiration. I think it’s absolutely brilliant, and of course true to the BS mission. I get to be one of the “inspiration” contributors!
So, what does this entail exactly? Well, they sent each of us (the contributors) a line drawing of two different patterns. For me, they sent me the dress and the skirt from the book. We were supposed to sketch 2 different ideas for each pattern, and take a picture of a fabric we would like to make it in. They took all of our design ideas and decided on one per contributor. I get to do a dress variation (my favorite of course)! Those lucky people at BS got to do all the fabric shopping for every design (how jealous am I?). I just now received the actual pattern, and the fabric they’ve chosen is on its way. I still don’t know what fabric they picked for me, and I think that’s the part I’ve been anticipating the most! At the end of July I’ll be sending the finished product in for professional pictures that I absolutely can not wait to see!
If I could, I would share with you all of my ideas, but I don’t believe I’m allowed to do that :( I of course can’t share the original designs or my final design, since those will be in the book (and what’s exciting news without some anticipation? Am I right? I’m hoping I’ll be able to take a picture of the fabric when it arrives at least!
The book comes out in Fall 2011. Maybe I’ll make up one of my other design ideas in the meantime… if that’s not against the rules🙂
Can you tell how excited I am?
