A little recap of my Burda Challenge pieces, shall we?
January 01/2012 #110 – I wore this dress a few times on our Caribbean cruise. It’s comfortable and sexy.
February 02/2013 #109 – I like this top but I never wear it. It’s too tight to wear alone and I don’t wear many jackets.
March 03/2012 #126 – I wore these a lot in the spring. I wore them a bit in the fall too when school started back up. I get compliments every time I wear them. People like the coloring and the seam details.
April 04/2011 #122 – I like this top and have worn it several times. The color is a little scary. You really have to be ready for it.
May 05/2013 #107 – I love this top and I wore it all the time this summer.
June 06/2013 #110 - I plan to wear this dress to a holiday party we have coming up. Fun times with sparkle!!
July 07/2011 #110 – This particular dress was a dud in this fabric. But, and this is a big butt (har har), this pattern turned into my favorite dress of all time. It’s amazing what happens when you pair the perfect fabric with a pattern.
Same pattern, different dress! This is my most favorite thing I’ve ever made!
August 08-2012 #113 – I love this peplum top. I know that trend is probably here and gone, but I live in Alaska and we live in the past, ya’ll.
September 09/2008 #104 – I love this jacket and wear it all the time!
October 10/2013 #111 – The weird hip poochies still bother me. I get compliments when I wear it so other people must not be bothered by them!
December 12/2013 #119 – I love this top. I plan to wear it to a few holiday parties this season. Again, fun with sparkle!!!
Some interesting observations:
7/12 are knit,
4/12 are dresses
only 2/12 are bottoms
4/12 are prints (I always think I use prints, so this surprises me)
6/12 are fabrics from the National City Swap Meet
6/12 are patterns from 2013 Burda magazines
I’m definitely doing it again this year. I think I will use patterns from 2014 only though. It was fun looking through my back issues of Burda though. I’m thinking of this for January . .
