    Tutorials, more and more tutorials. Someone is always coming up with new, better, or quicker ways to do everything. And we are never too old to learn. Love that fabric. gerrietutty@yahoo.com

    I enjoy everything on BurdaStyle, but it would be nice to have a resource guide as to where one can purchase “quality” fabric. And, a place where one can discuss different fabrics, their purpose, experiences using them, etc.

    Here are some good ideas:

    1. Tips for making your clothes look finely made rather than home-made.

    2. How about sections of the site for children, preteens, and teenagers, but not cheap-looking as some teen things are. Patterns for clothes and not just accessories and things made from jeans.

    3. Instructions for re-designing your sewing patterns.

    4. A way to upload patterns with free or pre-installed software.

    Additionally, I would like to see more step-by-step explanations of how to sew, step-by-step, for those of use who are truly novices and don’t know the sewing lingo. Also if a pattern is presented in a regular size, please also be sure to make the same pattern (if possible) for those with plus-sizes. Also more mens patterns, please!

    Love this website for inspiring creativity and a love of sewing! Encourages me to keep on trying to figure out how to decipher patterns and how to finally learn to use my sewing machines(s) and their wonderful attachments. Thanks for all you do!!! Happy Holidays to the entire staff!!!

    I’d like to see more pictures in the posts for the patterns. I understand the point of using photos in magazine shoot style, but for some of the items it’s hard to get an impression of the actual shape of the garment from most angles.

    some way of bookmarkin/favourite patterns (all patterns not only free ones) so its easyer to find and remember patterns one has seen and liked. And also more free patterns, mens patterns and more categories.Better and easier searching.

    I would like to see ideas on how to use your old clothes and make them into some new and exciting. There is so many people who throw old clothes away and there is much you can do to make them fresh again. Also maybe more accessory patterns.

    I’d like to see a pattern for the 1940’s Pendleton wool women’s jackets that were usually in plaid, with two pockets in front and big buttons in sizes up to 3×.
