    Hi does anyone know where to find a tutorial for adding piping to a notched collar? The link in here is not allowing me to purchase this one.

    To be honest, I don’t think that this kit is worth $30. Especially if you already had the pattern before the kit came out and/or you can’t take advantage of the Mood Fabric’s discount.

    The tutorial seems to have been put together too quickly. It doesn’t even show a fully finished garment.

    I think that Burdastyle should take a page from the sew alongs on the Colette Pattern’s blog. These are very detailed and take you through every step, from choosing fabric to fitting to personalization.

    I really don’t like to complain, but I hope that this criticism can contribute the the improvement of future kits.

      It seems that the tutorial “Sewing the Peplum Jacket Tutorial” shows all the steps to finish the jacket, isn’t it?. Did you buy the kit?
      Anyway, I also have the pattern and I would buy only the 3 tutorials if I could, but not the whole lot, and It’s to expensive for me 30$, even with the 60% off.
      I hope that for the September Kit, Burda allows us to purchase only the tutorials and with a lower cost

    I wish the site that you go to to buy this kit had said something about the expiration date for Mood. I won’t have a US shipping address available until the end of September, and if I had known I would have just bought the pattern without the kit later. Might be worth adding next time you have one of these!

    Is there an expiry date to the Mood Fabrics discount code? I’m not sure if I’m willing to wait for shipping to start this project!

    What if we already purchased the pattern [i.e. last month]? How do we purchase/access the tutorial material?
