    Why did my pattern pieces print in a language I can not read. I only read English. This was my first pattern download. If I want to order another pattern I need to know how to get the pattern pieces in English. Thank you Mary McConnell gg92350

    I uploaded my first project today. My picture shows up very wide and I don’t know how to fix it. Any tips? Also it isn’t showing up in member projects. Anything I need to do? It’s a turtleneck top 9/2010 121. Thanks!

    I bought a Burda pattern for the piped trench coat and am trying to find a print shop to have it printed out. You say to use 36" wide paper but the print shop has asked me for the depth needed. Can you help?

    I downloaded the modell 103 burda style and the directions are for Burda 101. The patter pieces in the instructions do not match…or I am not seeing it clearly. I would like some assistance.

      Nevermind. I’m very silly. Apparently you should print the correct pattern that goes with the correct instruction! That’s what happens when your library continues to grow. Thank you!

      Some of our patterns will share a PDF with another pattern. If there are pieces on the PDF that are not mentioned in the Instructions, you can just ignore the pieces.

      Here is a link to our FAQ about downloading, printing and assembling our patterns:

      The pattern and the instructions will be two separate downloads in your LIBRARY. From your LIBRARY, you may wish to try to RIGHT CLICK (on a PC) or CTRL CLICK (on a MAC) the download links and then SAVE the files to your computer before viewing.
      We recommend updating to the latest version of ADOBE READER to view and print our patterns.

      All registrants (regardless if they attend the webinar live) will receive a “Thank You” email the following Monday (if the live webinar was on Thursday) or Thursday (if the live webinar was on Monday) with a recording of the event, the Q&A transcript, and any additional downloads/resources referenced during the event. You will also have the opportunity to email the presenter any follow-up questions you might have after watching the recording.
      Please note that our webinar emails include live links and sometimes will end up in a JUNK or SPAM folder. If you don’t receive the email, be sure to check those folders.
      A recording will also be available in your Library.
      Additionally, you can purchase recordings of our live webinars in the On Demand section of our main web site. Webinars are typically posted 1-2 weeks after the original airdate. Here is the direct link:
      Thank you for your interest in our webinars!

      There are a few different reasons this could be happening. First, if you are an international customer, it could be that your bank does not allow international charges. If this is the case, you can talk to your bank and they can usually assist you in placing the order. The second is that your bank may not recognize Burda as a legitimate site, and so it denies the transaction. Usually the financial institution will check it out and you will be cleared to use it in 24-48 hours, so you can just try again. Or third, our system does not recognize your banking institution. Typically this happens when you are using a temporary credit card (such as a gift card). If this is the case, you will need to try to place your order using another card.
      You could also try using a different Internet browser for the purchase (i.e. Chrome, FireFox, Internet Explorer, etc.) to see if that clears up the issue.
      We accept American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa credit/debit/gift cards.

    Hello! I just bought a mens pants pattern and I was really disappointed to see that there is no greek instructions… As long as you sell patterns to Greece, I think that you should translate instructions in greek!

    I purchased a Burda Style downloadable pattern yesterday Style 07/2013 which is a cowl necked tank, but it does not have any instructions included. Whilst I am a experienced sewer and can figure out what to do, I want instructions to make the style changes easier rather than having to ‘re-invent the wheel’. The notations on the pattern pieces are minimal and I presume I have to cut my own bias binding to finish the back armholes and neck. I want to put it on the bias and make it in silk satin but think it might take too much fabric.

    Hi-I signed up and paid for the fitting webinar that started last Monday and never received access to the class. I’ve tried multiple ways of getting in touch with burda to solve this issue but no one will get back with me. I’m now almost a week behind in the course. What can I do to get someone to get back to me? It was an expensive course and I was excited to take it. Thanks- Carrie (username CarrieChuck)
