    I would love to see a post on how to tailor pants especially with a top band around them. I’m attempting to salvage some nice dress pants which have gotten too big.

    In general I like Burda very much. It would be useful for me to find easy patterns and I expect to see more knitted sweaters and patching change dresses / clothes.

    I’d like to see more creative finishing techniques. It would be nice to get more in depth in the details of finishing garments because in my opinion, no matter what you’re making, if it’s not finished nicely and neatly, it ruins the whole garment!! I’m also a BIG fan of ZIPPERS! I’d like to learn (and I’m sure a lot of us would too) how to install zippers in the middle of a pattern piece (ie: Motorcycle Jackets). LOVE LOVE LOVE BROTHER!!!!! I’D RECOMMEND BROTHER TO EVERYONE I MEET!!!

    Tutorials are the BEST…especially for novices like me! So bring it on! I would really love the time to learn how to sew well, clearly dont have all the resources to be able to do so, but love to read and be inspired by everyones work and ideas. How to’s: Refashioning old clothing, sewing maternity wear, childrens and baby clothing, hand sewing techniques, free patterns and more on pattern making, fabric combinations/compliments. I could keep going on….
