I’m sure I’m not alone here – as a former subscriber to the Burda WOF mags, I am very accustomed to tracing my patterns out. I also will gladly spend the $5 to have my pattern printed at the local copy shop on the plotter. I will not, however, spend 3 hours with a scissors and tape making a pattern out of paper. Many of us sew, a lot, and do not have time (or patience) for that. For $5.40 I’m better off going to Joann Fabrics and buying a pattern that I don’t have make myself out of copy paper.
Please. I cannot be the only person who hates this (and won’t use it). This site has changed a lot, good and bad, but this is a very, very alienating change. I have downloaded the files before (Melissa dress, motorcycle jacket, a few others) and wish I did more when I had the chance.
Am I just not seeing this feature? Have I just gotten too much fabric dust in my eyes? Please help!
