    Plus size or 14 avg would be a wonderful size for free patterns, full skirts, nothing real tight. I have worked so many projects this fall I would love to win the thread prize. My thread holder is sparse now. Is there any basic instruction for left handed crocheters? I need to hold needle in left hand, thread in right, I’ve tried and seems the instructions are all backwards. Any suggestions…

    I would like to see information on how to alter ready make clothing. For Example: how to shorten sleeves on a tailored jacket or how to narrow the shoulder width on a jacket or top

    Plus size clothing, but not dowdy sack type stuff. Us twenty-somethings want to look cool and young as well. And before people out there start shouting saying that people who are plus size should go on a diet/ exercise more or just go away, there are medical conditions out there that mean that people are forced to be a plus size through no fault of their own.

    Some people can be very cruel. A reason I took up making my own cloths was because I walked in the door of a well known clothing store and the assistant was straight at me telling me that they didn’t sell my size!!!!! I wrote letters to the company and never got a reply. So much to say that I or any of my friends have never shopped there since.

    Sorry for the rant

    I am always looking for simple jackets that have less than full length sleeves. Thanks to never-ending hot flashes, I just can’t handle most suit jackets. But I like to look professional. Not many to purchase, so I like to make them.

    I’d like to have a BASIC pattern (skirt / dress, blouse / t-shirt, pants, etc.) that would make it easy to change to the proper figure and that would give variations in the output. If the explanations would come with those basic patterns and maybe a few examples (small woman with hips / woman with a round or flat behind (fanny?) / etc.) how to adapt that would be great! I always love the old patterns (50th / 60th) and I mostly miss mens fashion in big(ger) sizes – the german magazine only shows men-sizes up to 54 if at all, which is a “L”. And that’s not sufficient. What would also be great to have the patterns in all sizes not only for “normal” figures and the other patterns for “plus”. (I often like the plus-sizes pieces better than the normal ones.)

    Can you please include some patterns for children’s soft toys? The cute, japanese type ones! I want to sew a dinosaur for my baby boy and a cupcake for my girl to decorate their beds.

    If at all possible, it would be fantastic if Burdastyle could have collaborations with designers who are up and coming, and having them design patterns available for purchase from Burdastyle.com. As in “this month’s designer”. Great publicity for them, and a nice treat for us:) Great giveaway, by the way! Merry Christmas from Norway!
