But just want to buy a paper Burda pattern?

With the main Burda website redirecting here, I cannot do that, and not all the patterns are available here. There are also times when I don’t want to download a pattern, print it off, tile it up and THEN cut and alter it. I just want to buy and go.

And there are a LOT of sewists out there who use the Burda printed patterns and who have no interest in using anything other than a complete pattern. What are they to do? Many of them are going to look elsewhere.

There are a few places that stock the paper patterns, and I CAN order from them, but with the main site redirecting to here, there seems to be no way to access the pattern envelope information, sizing details, or line drawings of the style details, and these are important factors when choosing a pattern. And in addition, many UK retailers do not carry the full range, especially not the costume patterns.

Advise, please. This seems to be a retrograde step, and a very serious one. Even if it is temporary, lack of access to the full range of Burda patterns is going to lose you a LOT of good will and a lot of sales… People won’t think of Burda first in the future when looking for patterns.

    I buy my patterns from sewingpatterns.com. They send to Australia relatively quickly & cheaply so they may be able to help you with a particular pattern if you are having trouble. I think I read on Pattern Review that the German shop doesn’t send to the UK.

      I’ve bought from Burda in Euros and has patterns sent from Germany before now, no problem. But it will be if I can’t order them!

      I use Jaycotts quite a bit for all sorts of things. They are OK for all the ‘normal’ pattern stuff, but don’t always have the costume things.

    BurdaFashion is still available at http://www.burdamode.com:8080/en/index.html

    I don’t know if you can still purchase patterns there, but you can navigate around the site, post on the forum, and download the free patterns.

      That had fallen over somehow last time I looked (I got a 404 page). Possibly just because it was too busy to cope! I’ll give it a go. Thanks.

    In my country you can buy patterns in fabric-stores and the Burda Magazine has great patterns but I don’t know if you can get it in your country and if you’re looking for something like that. I hope this help you. Floooo
