      Will the digital version be available to other countries? Australia, for example. The paper magazines tend to be quite expensive by the time they make it down here. I do prefer to buy my magazines as digital versions, and have no issues with printing out the patterns – it would undoubtedly be easier than tracing them off the master sheet.

      I read through the issue in store… it appeared to mostly re-hash old patterns and photo shoots from previous issues. I hope future issues will have new and original content inside and won’t just borrow from past ones/European version . Also, I wasn’t able to locate in the issue any info about the patterns you can download if you own the magazine (it was advertised on front and talked about some in the editor letter in front of the magazine)— this could have been my error— I see someone else has found the link in a previous comment http://www.burdastyle.com/PatternDownloads/Winter2014

      This version of Burda would be a nice magazine for those brand new to Burda, beginner seamstresses and totally unfamiliar to anything you’ve printed or designed before. The new American directions seem to be on an interesting and good path.

      Overall it feels like a strange idea to re-package what is already available via the more interesting and useful mail order magazine… and the patterns are already available online already, too. I would love to have seen the regular Burda magazine readily available on newsstands in the U.S. as opposed to this version, but with the nice changes for the North American audience.

      So I love this new magazine BUT there is a problem with the patterns!

      I was going through tracing I realized that you are missing a pattern in the print out sheets!

      For both “Swing Dress 08/2012 #133” and “Pencil Skirt (Plus Size) 03/2013 #145” you indicate “Black Pattern Line, Sheets D-1 and D-2, pieces 21-26”.

      I’ve tried searching every sheet in every colour and every number but I cannot find the pieces for the skirt. The only correct skirt piece you provide is #26 Facing.

      Can we please have this pattern provided as a downloadable option like the others since it is not included in the pattern inserts? Funny enough, both of these patterns are the reason I bought the first issue cause I LOVED these two. So I would like access to both of them please.


      That is the link to skirt #145 that you have said were in the pattern inserts but are not. The dress is there.

      Thank you Kindly. Chrystal McKay

        Hi Chrystal, Oh dear, thank you for bringing this to our attention. I’ll have a look through with our team and we’ll absolutely get you (and everyone) anything that’s missing.

        Hi Chrystal,

        Thank you catching that. We’ve figured out what the problem is:

        There is an error on page 111. The pieces for skirt 145-102013-US should have been numbered as pieces 26-31 (instead of 21-26).

        The other error (also relating to this skirt) is that pattern piece #29 isn’t marked on the D-2 insert sheet. It’s there, but isn’t marked.

        We will email you an update of page 111 and a fixed D-2 black pattern line only that you’ll be able to easily print from home.

        Happy Sewing!

        I ‘m also having a problem finding a pattern. I’m looking for the pattern for 103-102013-US Coat. The magazine indicates that it should be in black line on sheets A1-A2, but I just can’t find it. Could anyone help me with this? I’ve already purchased 4 yards of fleece for this project!

      I want to support you guys for doing this and I would love to subscribe even though I have had and plan to keep the translated version subscription. That love goes back to my childhood years and I am looking forward to the magazine every month. I would gladly sign up, but … I haven’t used a check in a million years, nor do I have any (trying to save a tree every now and then). Will there be another way to pay for subscription? Online payment, Paypal perhaps? Any other form of payment, please?

      I went to pick up a copy at my local JoAnns. I didn’t purchase because there was no page that shows all the patterns included together. When I’m making decisions about what to sew I value being able to see all the pattern drawings on one page with their difficulty level and size option. I also think it would be helpful to see at a glance which patterns were included and which were downloadable. It’s also a time saver when I’m going through old issues looking for a pattern.

      I am a plus sized woman and I just got my copy of the inaugural issue from Barnes and Noble. Wow! Am I pleased! The magazine had at least 4 PHYSICAL patterns for plus sized ladies in the magazine. About 5 more patterns for plus sized women were also included online for FREE via download. The fashion was fresh, modern and stylish! Even more stylish and contemporary than Lane Bryant! The patterns for these clothes are actually something I WANT TO WEAR!! I am looking forward to sewing this weekend! I am so excited to try one of these out! Keep up the good work Burda Style USA. I will have my eyes on the newstand for your new issues in January!!!

      agreed about the line drawing page, looking forward to getting answers on some of these questions – I flipped through a copy, thought it looked good, but I’ve come to appreciate the format and feel of the translated version too…and the fact that I get to pick up a copy every month, I always look forward to it!

        Thanks so much! I’ve answered the questions in Jill’s message below. When you say “line drawing page”, do you mean the pattern preview/summary page before the instructions? Right now, all of the pages in the magazine are accounted for, but we always want to hear what you want so that we can do whatever we can wherever we can!

      Hi Denise! I found the inaugural edition at Joann’s last night — books a million didn’t have it. IDK if they just haven’t received it yet or they won’t be carrying it at all the stores? I haven’t checked other outlets yet.

      I do have several comments/questions about the US Edition now that I’ve had my hands on it:

      First – the layout is great: more fashion-magazine, less austere “patterns and photos” content. I found the beauty tips were a nice touch, too.

      2. I was extremely disappointed to find that I already owned every pattern and had read every article and DIY through my about-to-expire Burda subscription. Being that this was the first issue I am hoping this is an anomaly and only happened in order to get the first issue out on schedule. Will future issues of Burda US contain at least most of the patterns in the current (same month) German edition subscribers currently receive, and perhaps even include a few US-only patterns for the market that we’ve not seen before as subscribers and website users?

      Can you comment on this at all? My subscription is up for renewal now and I need to make a decision on whether to renew the current subscription or switch.

      3. While I was disappointed that all of the patterns in the inaugural issue were ones I’ve seen and in many cases, made already, it did allow me the opportunity to re-read the new “North American English” sewing instructions. Congratulations!! Some of the pattern instructions had been translated so ridiculously a novice pattern would escalate to “master seamstress” if you tried to follow them. The newly re-written instructions are far more clear and written for the way we in the North American sewing market are used to reading and working – you even removed the references to Vilene products from materials lists and replaced them with items available in the US market!! Fantastic!!! Now i won’t feel compelled to keep having Vilene Bias Tape imported from the UK (although i really do love that bias tape!)

      3. The cover said “Winter 2014”. I notice that you’ve referenced a 4-issue subscription for $24.99. Will Burda US be issued on a quarterly basis in the first year? Or will the 4 issues cover [Dec], Jan, Feb, Mar, [April]? If the first year is to be quarterly I can see myself renewing my current subscription and supplementing it with Burda US assuming the content will be different enough to warrant a subscription to both?

      Anyway, you and the entire team have really brought some great changes to Burda both in the US and the worldwide community of burdastyle.com in the short time you’ve been working together. I applaud all of your efforts. The new video site, webinars, new magazine, Meg’s editorials and mash-ups – previously unavailable patterns on the website re-categorized into collections and with new instructions. None of your hard work has gone unnoticed! When do you all sleep???

      Keep up the great work!

      One thing that’s high on my wish list: an e-magazine, like threads and sew stylish etc are doing. Patterns would be downloadable and printable at home or to copy shop. I’d love to be able to print my patterns from a digital subscription vs. tracing them; a digital edition would also make storing my beloved magazines so much easier and neater! We need never be without them. Just a thought. I admit – tracing is the one thing that keeps me and probably a lot of us from getting more projects completed. I’d rather pay to print at copy shop if I could as long I own the issue already. There are even times I will buy patterns from the site that i own in an issue just to be able to scale them up in illustrator and send them to print. $5.40 for each pattern + printing costs for a pattern Ii already own is a bit much based on the subscription prices. Time is an important factor for us all, though.

      TYIA for anything you are able to respond to in this long and rambling question. Thanks again for all your hard work. You are all taking things to the 21st century and doing it well.

      Best! Jill

        Hi Jill!

        Lots of questions, let me go through them one by one… :)

        I unfortunately don’t know what each store’s inventory is like. Perhaps Books A Million doesn’t send copies to every single location. I’m sorry I don’t know more. I would suggest calling the Books A Million location you went to to find out if it’s expected there.

        Because of all the time required for the production of the US version in all aspects of the magazine, our schedule at this point doesn’t allow for us to use Germany’s current nor future months’ content. Also, there won’t be any US-only patterns in the near future. Each of the BurdaStyle patterns created by Burda’s Fashion Factory in Germany are shared with all of the 90 countries the magazine is available in.

        I’m thrilled you noticed the changes in the instructions. What you’ve outlined were exactly our goals from the start, and we spent a lot of time going through each pattern word by word, line by line. So glad you like!

        Yes, BurdaStyle US will be issued on a quarterly basis in 2014. Following this Winter 2014 issue, you’ll next see Spring 2014, Summer 2014, Fall 2014, and Winter 2015, all released in 2014.

        I’m so glad you’re seeing and enjoying all of the changes we’ve been doing! Our goal is to give everyone more of what you want and to support your sewing growth and success! (And quite often we don’t sleep. But that keeps it interesting! lol)

        And I’m happy to let you know that we DO have a digital edition of BurdaStyle US! And will continue to have a digital edition with each issue. We’re working right now (…literally right now… lol) to get it posted online for sale. Just a note, this digital edition will have the patterns in the insert in the same way the magazine has them in the insert. It’s a direct digital version of the magazine, so you will still need to assemble and trace.

        Don’t even worry about all the questions! This is brand new, so it makes sense to clarify everything!!! :)

        I just looked up one of the trouser pattens and this is the web address I entered.


        From there all I did was click on the “Get it now” button and it asked for the code, after that enter it took me to my pattern library like it does for other downloadable patterns.

        Hope it works for you!
