BCEU Official contests

Are you coming to BCEU?

Then you can’t miss our official contests!

“Folklore A-line dress” contest

Europe is the cradle of fashion and we want you to prove it!
Choose your favorite European country and represent it in the shape of an A-line dress.
Spain is famous for sevillana and paella, but also for a mixture of cultures and modern art.
Germany is famous for Beethoven and bratwurst, but also for being the land of poets and thinkers.

You can use every fabric (or any other material) you want to. Embellish the dress with laces, pockets or any other details, all we ask for is that you use the A-line pattern as a base for your dress.
You can download the A-line dress pattern from here:
