book, whoopeee! It's quite exciting, and I'm quite nervous about pulling it all off (I will, but I want it to be perfect)
I will be making a version of a coat designed by Burdastyle, but it will be hard to tell it's based on the same coat pattern as the original, I'm changing it quite a lot. I also have to make instructions on how to make the changes. I'm possibly the most nervous about that, it's SO important that I make them easy enough to understand... but I think I'm mainly nervous as a way of building up energy to make it all fast enough (it must be done in three weeks, from recieveing the original pattern to shipping the finished piece off, and I will spend half of that time in France).
Anyway, it's very exciting, and it's also very excting to finally find out who some of the other participants are and what they are making. And apparently Burdastyle want more members to be a part of it so if you're not in it yet but would like to be, keep an eye on their blog.
this, very nice version of my Cowl-dress that I uploaded the pattern for at Burdastyle.
I'm glad to see many members making it, and I'm usually very pleased with their versions. I actually often find them better than my own.
I'm also very glad to see the comments about the pattern, that they find it easy to make and figure flattering. Any pattern-makers wish come true!
Shiawase (happy heart)!
Sometimes I feel like I live a life of stepping on bananapeels that make me slip here and there, to good places. Such as joining a sewing-site and ending up as a part of their book! Then I remember that I do quite a load of hard work here and there. But still, I feel lucky!
