Can you sell an article of clothing you made based on someone else’s pattern? I thought you couldn’t but I wanted to make sure. I recently made a pair of pajamas based on a free pattern created by a blogger and they’re really well-made just too small for me.

    No problem if the pattern is copyright free or open source. If not, then ask the blogger. Or make them a Christmas prezzy for a smaller friend! :)

    I was trying to find this information – when I first logged on – I thought I saw a note saying the burda patterns were copyright free – but now I can’t find that info – are some of the patterns copyright free and not others? where is this info? Colleen

    All BurdaStyle-created patterns are considered “Open Source.” An Open Source pattern means that it is copyright-free, which means that you can create garments based on the pattern for commercial use. We do, however, appreciate crediting BurdaStyle or linking back to the base pattern. You are not able to re-sell the original pattern.

    Please note that only BurdaStyle-created patterns are copyright-free. burda style Magazine and member-created patterns still maintain copyright restrictions. You are not allowed to created garments for commercial use directly from these patterns.
