    jenss-1 commented on the article A New Giveaway for Vintage Fashion Lovers

    Slowly, I’ve been adding my paper patterns to a database I created on my laptop. Each database record contains the pattern brand/number, type of garment, season, style, knit or woven, certain othe…

    jenss-1 commented on the article City Noir: 10 Urban Staples

    The jacket would be okay, of course. However, some office rules frown on sleeveless garments, so those would not be formal enough for some professions. I’m just surprised that no one apparently …

    jenss-1 commented on the article City Noir: 10 Urban Staples

    I agree. The horrible image of the black dahlia murder was the first thing that I thought of too. It was also yet another what-was-Burda-thinking kind of moment. Ignorance perhaps, but I don’t t…

    jenss-1 commented on the article The Tourist: 13 Comfy-Cute Designs

    I was bitten by one of those baby alligators when I was a kid. Believe me, it hurt like hell. I don’t understand why the animal is in the photo, and the model must have been worried about those i…

    jenss-1 commented on the article Prairie Darling: 13 Down Home Patterns

    Cute for summer. Except the bootcut overalls, which are a crime.

    I’m happy to see the shorts and basic tank patterns. I won’t be doing them in sequins, but I hope that Burda offers more casual p…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Bad Pattern Instructions

    I’ve had a BSM subscription now for some time, and so I am quite used to the patterns. Mostly I don’t even bother following the instructions. Now, for the first time in a long time, I’m working o…

    Very cute! I’ve been thinking about making espadrilles too – thanks for sharing!

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic rotary cutter or not?

    There always instances when scissors will be needed, but a rotary cutter can be useful. I mainly only use mine for cutting things like bias strips, for which it is quite useful. I think that the …

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic DRAPE FABRIC

    It’s hard to say – it depends upon the weave and finish. What type of fabric is it?

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Feedback for the Burdastyle Team

    I think that MrsCharisma is referring to the pdf instructions that used to be publicly available for each pattern. I noticed that they seemed to have disappeared recently too, which is unfortunate…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Trouser/pant material

    The directions say “lightweight trouser fabrics with some body.” That’s not very precise! Too lightweight would be a problem, but I think the key is to avoid heavy or bulky fabrics, like melton, …

    Also, if you are having problems with the fabric sliding around…you can put a piece of tear-away/wash-away stabilizer underneath. Always do a test or two.

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic What to do about offensive ads?

    Frankly, I find the anime porn-ish ads kind of funny, but I’m sure there are plenty of people who don’t. I just wonder, why are they on Burdastyle? I don’t see them anywhere else.

    Make a habit of doing a quick brush-out of the bobbin compartment before starting a new project.

    I tend to forget to clean out the bobbin compartment when finishing a project, but I make a point…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Bernina question, old vs. new presser feet

    That’s interesting – I hadn’t thought about the feed dogs. I have a number of feet, but I was particularly interested in lap seam/flat felling feet recently. Not critical, but maybe nice to have….
