    I would like more work/ office wear clothes patterns such as stylish trousers and dresses, as well as simple accesories as I’m new to all of this and its great to have simple things to cut you teeth on.

    A future project about embroidery on a regular sewing machine with step by step instructions on how to update your garments or accessoiries would be very nice

    There arent many mens projects, and it would be nice to have some more. Also I’d love a good free trouser pattern.

    Most of it has been said – definitely some menswear, and also some draping, and maybe some ideas how to model the basic shirt and dress blocks..

    I agree with peach – I really like the projects from around the world, very creatively thought-provoking. Personally not so much in the home decor field.

    def. more accessories like hats and purses, and a better size range/more plus-size (a rather large portion of the world is overweight now guys, and just because someone is big doesn’t mean they want to dress in a muumuu or sweats all the time)

    I’d like to see more accessories and home projects, because I think I would try it more than the clothes projects, since I’m quite the begginner.

    Projects for teenage boys, Japanese, military style etc., like those army sweaters with patches on the shoulders. You know, something cool they will wear. — Especially sweaters that can be knitted because nearly all the RTW ones are made of cotton and that takes ages to dry. Nothing remotely feminine or Daddish.

    And some cool and comfortable jeans with hems that can be turned up or something. If you have a teenage brother or son, you know how hard it can be to get things to fit and last!

    Ooh! And some Japanese, retro and vintage clothes for girls and women. Plus ways to add such style to our projects.

    I think that Burda Style should offer all features of Burda Fashion they promised and nothing happened. That would be perfect Burda Style project!
