    Because most people’s printers are unable to print to the edge of the paper – having a pattern which goes all the way to the edge means that important info could go missing in the unprinted border of your page (and most pages only need to be trimmed on two sides anyway – then you can overlap them). A paper guillotine is incredibly useful…. (and apologies Trudy – I accidently hit the ‘inappropriate ’ button on your comment – can’t see an option to ‘take it back’)

    You know what I like best when I’m putting together a complicated pattern piece with lots and lots of little pieces? Having to go back in and figure out seam allowance! Why BurdaStyle? Why do you do this? This is a beautiful jacket but why?

      It’s much easier to adjust patterns that have no included seam allowance. I can understand people that are used to have seam allowance included in the patterns may forget this when cutting. But when used to it it is so much better if you’re a person who makes adjustments on the garments regulary when sewing.

      So I do instead prefer Burda among many other pattern-brands just because they do not add this (very often unneccesary wide as well) seam allowance.

      Wide (5/8") SA is supposed to make alterations easier, so you can go back and let out a seam instead of re-cutting an entire piece. Or do something fancy to finish the seams. If you use the recommended fabric type on the pattern, you don’t need to guess the SA needed to keep the seam intact/give strength to the seam and stop raveling. I just overcast all my raw edges (I’m lazy) but it makes overcasting easier on my machine because the throat hole is wide enough that lightweight fabric falls into it if it doesn’t span the entire width. It’s also faster for me to sew following the SA guide marked on my machine than to stitch on a line that is harder to see, obscured partially by needles and feet.

      Not all Burda patterns exclude SA, some have it, and I don’t know why they aren’t consistent. If all patterns are drafted by computer nowadays, which I suspect they are, it’d be simple to offer a choice.

      I agree, and i also find it frustrating having to cut around the edges of printable patterns? I mean they are drafted by computers, can’t see why it is necessary to leave the boarders around the A4 sheet to be trimmed individually. what;s the point?
