SewNews kolumna / The SewNews column

Dragi čitaoci, htela bih da se pohvalim da je moja dugo očekivana kolumna, Pattern Play, osvanula u američkom časopisu SewNews. Ovaj časopis nije dostupan na prostorima bivše Jugoslavije, tako da nisam ni znala za isti, dok me nije kontaktirala urednica, Ellen
Naime, Ellen je videla na BurdaStyle sajtu haljinu (khm, trebalo bi da promenim slike!) koju sam sama dizajnirala, i ponudlia mi da napišem članak o tome kako sam napravila kroj sa specifičnim faltama. Pre toga, nije mi ni palo na pamet da drugi zapravo uče, ili žele da nauče, od mene! Predložila sam dugoročniju saradnju sa časopisom, i tako je oformljena kolumna za 2011. godinu. Časopis izlazi na svaka dva meseca, tako da će kolumna sadržati ukupno 6 članaka. 
Prvi članak opisuje već pomenutu hajlinu sa faltama u obliku lista. Kroj za istu haljinu možete download-ovati sa Dowlnoad taba na blogu. Ceo članak možete pročitati i u web izdanju, ovde, a u prilogu vam ostavljam par slika iz časopisa.

Dear readers, I'm excited to announce that my long waited column, Pattern Play, has been published in the SewNews magazine. The magazine isn't available on the territory of the ex-YU countries, so I wasn't aware of its existence before Ellen, the editor, contacted me.
Ellen saw a dress (ahem, I should change the photos!) that I designed by myself on the BurdaStyle web site and proposed to me to write an article on altering a pattern the get the leaf shaped pleats. Before this, I wasn't aware that there were people who learned, or wanted to learn from me! I suggested few more articles on similar subject (pattern alterations), and I got the column in the magazine for the year 2011. The magazine has 6 issues per year, hence the column will be consisted of 6 articles.
The first article describes the pattern alterations for the above mentioned Leaf pleated dress. You can download the pattern for this dress from the Download tab of the blog. You can read the whole article here, and I'm sharing with you a few photos scanned from the magazine itself.
