    More free patterns! If not, maybe some kind of a purchasing deal? Like a “buy ‘insert number here’ get one free” kind of deal.

    I would like to see more corsets and lingerie related sewing tutorials and projects. I think they’re such important garments! Burda pays so much attention to clothing—and dont get me wrong, I LOVE that! However, I would love a little something about undergarments!

    I agree with the comments on book reviews. In general, more content that connected Burdastyle with the rest of the sewing world would be awesome.

    i see a lot of craft project creations, even though this site is all about creating wonderful clothing i think it might be neat to have a craft-type section..why not…burdastyle and the sewing community seems to be growing constantly and the members of this site are so talented! who knows what could come of it! haha this site is amazing already though..only reason to turn on the computer sometimes!! thank you very much!

    I would like to see more free patterns on BurdaStyle.com.Our Dollar Exchange Rate is so high that we, the people of Burma/Myanmar, cannot afford to buy everything with dollars.A dollar is about 1000 kyats,Burmese money. And I am not rich.

    I agree with others that I’d like to see more Menswear patterns and more about styling and creating patterns for men. Also I’d love to learn more about choosing fabrics, understanding their pros and cons when matching a garment type with fabric.

    More free patterns, categories broken down a bit more, with the addition of a vintage style section. Many of us love vintage fashion and there are plenty of us who improvise with contemporary patterns to “create” a vintage look. So perhaps also providing a place withing the “new” vintage style section for these pattern modifications to be shared.

    I’m very interested in making art to wear. I would love to see patterns which offer different options for constructions techniques—for example, jackets where the front closures can be changed for a different look. Also patterns that have options for adding quilted parts, beading, couching and other embellishment techniques.
