    I like that there are so many helpful articles and departments, and I especially like thatyou are helping to keep the fun and skill of sewing alive for the next generations. I’d love to win the sewing machine and dress form! My granddaughters are interested in learning how to sew and design their own clothes.

    My favorite aspect of Burdastyle… that’s a hard one. I picked this sewing blog out of about five other ones that I was interested. in, the biggest thing that I like about Burdastyle is the patterns, and the people. I love all of the feed-back from just random sewers who actually know what your talking about! I try to talk to my freinds about sewing and they don’t even have a clue!!! But most of all I love all of the constantly updated patterns and all of the available resources and tips.

    The pattern booklet is very explanatory. The sizes are perfect. All the patterns can be seen at the beginning of the magazine. And the designs are very trendy, following the European style. Love it!

    My favorite aspect of Burda Style is the Project link. I am so mesmerized by the many creative people that post their designs which gives others the opportunity to expand their talents. Creating handmade items for external embellishments will always enhance a look and personal esteem. For example, a simple dress, hat, etc., is personalized when someone add trimmings, decorative stitches, and other embellishings. As a seamstress, my creativity is sometimes blocked and Burda Style projects assist me in applying details to a piece that enhances the quality of the look. I appreciate this website mainly for the reason of helping me and others maintain our desires to create with our hands.

    I go almost every day, if work will let me! I love the patterns I can find, but I really enjoy seeing the creations of others, that gives me ideas to me! I think “Burda Style on line” is a very good idea in the face of the people we love sewing. What brings me back are the new models that I can go find

    I come here for inspiration :) we’ve finally managed to move into our little 3 bedroom house instead of all 4 of us being cramped in a one bedroom apartment and I am slowly decorating the house and making as many bits for it as I can, and I come to this site for inspiration and ideas of things to make to make my house homely and warm :)

    My favourite part is the community spirit, helping each other to continue to improve the designs. I like that I can put my own ideas in about certain methods and not worry about people wondering what I’m going on about, it’s such a friendly community spirit that you always feel like your comments are being taken on board.
