The team here at BurdaStyle would like to keep you in the know about all site updates and changes. Since you (all our lovely members) are the ones engaging and using our site, we want to fill you in on all our recent improvements! We are constantly researching and finding new ways to improve your experience on, and we hope these changes will continue to grow and inspire our creative community.

Each week our Pattern Store becomes more and more up-to-date! Because our older patterns have incomplete and or vague cutting and sewing instructions we are going back and updating them. Here are our most recent updates:

It is important to us that your sewing experience isn’t muddied by poor instructions. If you have purchased a pattern and feel that the instructions are not sufficient please contact us. We are happy to help!

Below are a few changes made to the site last month. Check them out and let us know what you think.

    It is music to my ears to read that Burda take the quality of their instructions very seriously and really do monitor them and act on their findings.

    Only yesterday I was complaining to a friend about the quality of the manual of a very top brand of digital radio. Amazingly she had also had the same problem with the same instructions! Let me tell you we are both extremely annoyed.

    So please keep up the quality of those instructions. We expect clear instructions. We don’t like wasting fabric, money or time that bad instructions bring. They make sewing stressful. Congratulations on you perseverance and standards.
