    Dear BurdaStyle

    It has been over a year now and still nothing seems to be fixed. Yes we can buy&download patterns from the magazine, which are actually the same price as for the whole magazine, but that’s about it. No looking through the current issue of the magazine, no home decoration ideas, Burda Easy free patterns disappeared as well. I know you might write back, that you’re sorting out the license problems, but isn’t this something you should have done before the merging? I was registered at both sites and to be fair I don’t see much of a difference between BurdaStyle before and BurdaStyle after the big redirecting. This page doesn’t teach me much and I’m not that interested in seeing what people sew from different brands, when I want to see how the actual pattern from Burda magazine, Burda fashion or this website looks like. Other readers might threw rocks at me for this comment, so I want to say it’s my personal opinion a I wanted to express my disappointment. Of course I’m glad there’s a high quality webpage related to sewing, at least we have that. But please don’t let us to stop reading you, because it’s getting kind of boring and your promises seams to vanish.

    And spam protection would be great too. All the best Tereza

    Please delete these spam messages! And thanks for keeping us informed — this seems to me like a huge corporate blunder. Hope you can resolve it. I mean, it’s been a year already.

    And here’s another voice echoing the GREAT dissappointment in BurdaStyle. I’m astonished at how nothing new has been communicated to the readers, it’s been 6 months already. I’m sure everyone else is wondering “what the heck happened????”

    How could you just remove the magazine content from the web? Why?

    I also feel that this new site is a very POOR substitute for the old one. I’ve tried to like this, but it’s not giving me the kind of info I want.

    Please, come on, tell us SOMETHING!!!

      Hi Steph,

      burda style magazine and our parent company, Verlag Aenne Burda, are currently sorting out licensing issues that will enable them to restore print pattern-related content back online.

      It was never our intention to be the substitute for Burda Fashion. We realize we are different from them, and do not have the content you enjoyed. BurdaStyle is a site that focuses on community and their content.

      As soon as we have any more information, we will certainly let everyone know. Again, we apologize for this inconvenience.

    Dear BurdaStyle, is there any update on when the missing content will be available? It’s been over 6 months now and since I always do my research online and only go to the shop to buy patterns when I already know what I want, this has meant that I’ve stopped buying Burda patterns and the magazine altogether.

    I understand that it might take a bit long to make the changes needed, but couldn’t you at least let us know roughly how long it will take – 1 month, 6 months, 1 year?! I’m very disappointed as Burda was my favourite pattern brand and now I have to rely on Simplicity & co.

    Agree with everyone else, I used the burdafashion site to look at the magazines specifically to see which patterns are in which mag.

    I’m currently looking at the German (burdastyle.de) and French (burdafashion.com/fr/) sites, and using Google toolbar to translate the pages – not ideal but better than nothing.

    When are we getting the magazine link on this site?

    p.s. I prefer the french site, burdafashion of course!

    Sick of BurdaStyle. Burda Plus special is 3/5 duplicated patterns. What a joke. I’ve not renewed my subscription to BS and will be re-evaluating my BS+ subs when they are due. I’ll continue to look at the issue previews on www.patternreview.com and the Russian or French sites and, maybe, buy individual issues.
