I have just downloaded my first Burdastyle pattern. and not sure what is the best way to get it printed. I could print at home on bond paper but am worried it would blunt my lovely Japanese fabric scissors. So is there a print shop in Sydney that will print Burda patterns onto tissue paper? What do other people do? Help, please!

    You cut out the pattern with regular paper sissors and then pin it to your fabric and cut the fabric with your good fabric sissors.

      Hm, I suppose I forgot that Burda patterns have no seam allowances, so you’re not cutting through both paper and fabric together. But still, isn’t the bond paper a bit stiff to pin onto fabric easily? Is that what you use?

    I use rotary cutter and don;t use pin. I use fabric weights to weigh down the paper on the fabric. When I need to modify the pattern, I retrace the pattern pieces on tissue paper so I end up with tissue paper pattern pieces that I then use to cut the fabric.

    I was unsure at first, being familiar with tissue paper patterns, but have come to love Burda patterns printed on bond paper, placed on fabric with weights as mbuchanan1 has described. I add the seam allowances to the paper pattern, cut paper out with regular office scissors , then lay it on the fabric and trace around with chalk. Then I remove paper and cut out fabric on chalk lines. I go back piece by piece and mark darts etc.

      It should be under your “Pattern Library” tab.

      Hi Elcarov. The premier issue did include free download codes for all patterns, but the Spring and Summer issues do not. To further clarify, we will continue to include 20 patterns as full-size inserts. The remaining patterns are available as paid digital downloads.
      We include fleshed-out instructions to every single pattern that is featured in the magazine, but only ones indicated as a “pattern insert” are available on the pattern insert pages. For any more questions, please email answers@burdastyle.com.

    I print mine up at a local print (and ship) store. The print shop uses ink that is water proof. My home printer ink will stain because it’s water soluble. I tape the whole thing together, after cutting of the top and right sides to the line. Then when whole pattern is together I measure all key points to make sure I’m getting a good fit. If I need to make changes to get a good fit I pencil that in right on printed pattern. Some times I cut out the pattern and sometimes I trace the pattern onto pattern tissue paper (after adding seam allowance). The more alterations I make to fit the more likely I am to trace onto tissue and just use the printed pattern as a master pattern. Tracing is more of a pain to do, but in the long run, if I need a close fit I can re-draw any changes back on printed pattern. That way I can re-trace a new tissue pattern. I have had to do this with Burda patterns because the arms and shoulders tend to be too tight on me (usual with RTW as well). If I cut the printed pattern I do like others do and trace around the pattern onto the fabric. But I like to add seam allowance before I cut pattern otherwise I might forget to add (and forget I have).
