    I love Burdastyle and I would spend even more countless hours on here if there were videos! How-to videos or quick new pattern update videos or even new trends that are on patterns. Its a great way to attract more people through youtube!

    Ooh, there’s lots I love about this site. What would I change or add?

    I often really enjoy some of the ‘re-fashions’ of existing patterns of the site, and the modified ‘how-to’ alter them into often quite different looks. I’d really like some sense of the principles of modification – how and why particular features of patterns can be modified.

    Extending from that request – some insight into how to modify typical fit issues would be really useful. I can quite often see something isn’t quite right when I’ve made it – I don’t always know what to do about it!

    Oh -and since we’re on the topic, and it’s winter (certainly in the UK anyway!) – a how-to on lining a garment would be fab!

    I have my eyes on the Pendleton wool for a simple coat or jacket I think…something from Burda 11/2010 methinks…

    I love Pendleton wool. I always grab up any skirts I find at thrift shops that have their label. In fact the project I’m working on right now is a Pendleton re-trend! It may be my first project post when I’m done. I would like to see more video tutorials and patterns inspired by unique designers.

    I would like users to be able to sell their patterns on the site, not only Burda. I think it would contribute to a free market of pattern designers, and an ability for them to start their own ventures.
