    I’d love to see more advice on fitting, especially tips for fitting yourself, by yourself. I’m finding I don’t even know how to recognize when things fit properly, or what to look for.

    I would like to see more patterns for men. There are only a handful available and they are similar and casual.

    More alteration tutorials. Alterations are my weakest point and it would really help if you posted more tutorials. Who better to learn how to alter patterns from than Burdastyle?

    I would enjoy more free or nearly free patterns. Perhaps patterns that are free for a month, and rotate, somehow so there are new free patterns regularly.

    I’d love to see more pictures of all sides of a garment for each pattern posted by burdastyle or burdastyle magazine – sometimes only the back or front is shown, making pattern selection more chancy. I do love the variety, though, of all the patterns available!

    OMG! Pendleton fabric!!?! JUST WHAT I NEED!!

    I am going to be specific, INTERLINING!!! I would LOVE to see a step-by-step tutorial on interlining and how to go about it!! I am trying to figure out a way to make an interlining for this cape I am dreaming up bc I am lacking warm fabric and it would be expensive to buy some very nice looking and warm fabric.

    I am starting on my cape soon and will attempt to interline the cape nicely sooo we will see where this goes!

    NOW, of course a second cape made with Pendleton fabric would make me feel like the coolest kid in town!! [just saying]
