The BurdaStyle 1st Design and Pattern Competition
Dearest BurdaStyle members,
We are thrilled to announce our first BurdaStyle Design Competition. As an open source website, we are hoping to facilitate more creative opportunities for the sewing community all over the world. Now we’ve come up with the perfect way for you to contribute to the site as well as to your own trophy case, or in this case, pattern library. Send us your designs and we will choose two winners to have their patterns professionally created, shot in a photo shoot, featured on BurdaStyle.com, and downloaded by other BurdaStyle users! Also, did we mention that this competition can make a contribution to your wallet!?!
There are two categories to which you can submit. If you are great at designing, but not patternmaking, submit an illustration and tech drawing along with specifications, and we’ll do all of the pattern work. If you feel confident in your patternmaking skills, show them off! Send us a pattern you made along with a muslin of the design and technical drawing.
Design-based competition PRIZE $300 Design a garment or outfit (if you choose to illustrate an outfit, make clear which piece you are submitting as we will only choose 1 garment to produce) Submit an illustration of your design (front and back), a technical drawing (front and back) and specifications. Also send a document telling a little bit about yourself, the inspiration for your design, and a description of the fabrics you envision your design in. Send everything as low-res jpeg [indicate size] and contact information including a picture of yourself in an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. All contestants must have a filled-out user profile on BurdaStyle.com, which will be used to introduce you as a participant.
Pattern-based competition PRIZE $500 Design a garment. Submit a self-made paper pattern, muslin, and technical drawing. Also send a document telling a little bit about yourself, the inspiration for your design, and a description of the fabrics you envision your design in. All contestants must have a filled-out user profile on BurdaStyle.com, which will be used to introduce you as a participant.
This is a big week for us. So many big decisions leave us ready for the weekend, which will be just as eventful, considering that we are almost ready to launch the new web design.
Again, we have to express our big amazement with your work. We received lots of very creative submissions with very well constructed patterns. It makes us realize how much potential is out there and hope that we find more and more ways to bring that to our site.
Enough of the waiting, here is our winner for the design/pattern contest:
Somwan Molzer also known as JJ.
She is the winner of $500 and her pattern will be produced as free download for all BurdaStyle members.
Her Retro inspired blouse is convincing in all criterias. The design, even though very developed leaves room for pattern changes and adaptation. It would work as a simpler version, without the ruffles just as well as replacing them with piping.
Her pattern is technically sound and was presented in a very clean and understandable way. All left to do is create the PDF out of it…
We feel that her pattern is a great addition to our ever growing collection and we hope to see many variations…
