    I want to buy the Shift dress with slits #129, However the sizing says 17 18 19 20 21. I have checked the sizing charts several times, and nothing corresponds. Am I missing something? I have been buying Burda for many years, and have never seen these numbers on the sizing side.

    Hi I’m trying to buy a pattern of your today’s 50% sale, but I have already tried with 3 different cards and the purchase can not be completed. Do you have another option of payment? I think the site is the problem because I checked my cards and there isn’t any problem with them.

    Thanks

    I purchased the pattern 101 hoodie top. I am making version C that has banded sleeves and bottom. The pattern does not have the bands. I have printed it off and taped it all together…no bands and no bands shown on the pattern piece diagram. I don’t know what size to make the bands! I read through all instructions in case a dimension was mentioned but nothing. Now what!

    I purchased the “wardrobe essentials” sewing book and have found an error. I am in the process of making the cowl top from 12-2012,, #118. I was having difficulty joining the shoulder seams, searched all the blogs and couldn’t figure it out. When I compared the magazine pattern to the pattern in the book, I found an entirely different back. I can remedy this but am very concerned about the rest of the patterns. What can I expect to find?

    I’m using Burda Pattern 6947. The bolero jacket requires a “twin needle” stitching. My machine does not have this capability. The material is a stretchy mesh. The rest of the seams I used a zig-zag stitch. Any suggestions?

      I just checked that pattern and both downloads are there. The pattern and the instructions will be two separate downloads found in your LIBRARY.

      All of our available patterns come in downloadable .pdf files. Once you click “Get It” on the pattern page, the pattern is automatically sent to your Purchase History page within your profile. Go to your profile by clicking on your username, and click on Library. You can also access your Library in the right-hand side of the homepage.

    I have purchased print at home patterns. I see that all your patterns are to be printed on Letter format paper 8″×11″. Because I’m based in South Africa and we use the British paper size of A4. How may I print the patterns without messing up the sizing?

    I bought the boxy jacket pattern(Boxy Jacket 11/2015 #115A) but is it me or are the measurements for the front and back hem band not included? (specified as a and b in the ‘cutting out’ part) It does say right above in the ‘seam and hem allowance to be added’ part that the measurements for part a to d include allowances but i can’t find these measurements anywhere!

    These are absolutely by far the worst patterns I’ve ever used! what a mess! You have to try to tape them yourself, get them to fit, cut them only to find out after sewing they are too small! What kind of company leaves off seam allowances on some patterns? I would have NEVER bought these if I knew I had to print them myself and try to piece them together. They also do NOT fit on the fabric size as shown. These are Impossible to use! I want a refund TODAY. Thank you.

      Here is a link to our complete FAQ about downloading printing and assembling our patterns:
      http://www.burdastyle.com/faq/patterns#faq_13http://www.burdastyle.com/faq/patterns#faq_13

      We don’t include seam allowance on our patterns to make it easier to make fit and style alterations to the pattern, as well as giving the sewer the ability to add the seam allowance that they like to sew with. Some fabrics and certain seam/hem finished require different seam allowance widths so we give the sewer the opportunity to add their own seam allowance. Beginner sewers should add wider allowances, and more advanced usually like to sew with thinner allowance. Each pattern indicates the recommended allowance to add to the pattern.

      If you have an specific questions about a particular pattern, you can email those to answers@burdastyle.com and I can forward them along to our pattern department.

      These patterns are Draft It Yourself. Most of our .99 patterns only provide instructions. You will need to thoroughly read the instructions to determine if they direct you to draft your own pattern pieces.
