    Hi there, I bought “Ruby” pattern a few days ago and notice that a part of the instruction is missing; it is step 9, where you can see the illustrations of underlaps but the instruction is talking about " front waistband" which is exactly the same as the step 11, or is it only mine……..?

    I am working on the test at the moment and I thought I could figure it out without it but not quite……… It would be great if you could upload the instruction for it.

    Hi there. I just added some pics of the Alexander Blouse I made, but for some reason i couldnt link it to the pattern. Even when I ticked the box and wrote alexander blouise in the box, a pop up kept asking me for at least one project name.. hmm. What am i doing wrong??

    Hi Burda – what is going on with the posted projects? There are so many spams being uploaded, it needs monitoring in some way. I have noticed people posting pictures of piles of fabric and some spam uploads of things that have been mass manufactured. Is their a way we can report these to you for your attention?? I have been using Burda for over a year and this seams to be a growing problem. Thanks in advance for your time. Happy Sewing B0)

    Hi! I have a problem. I can’t upload any of my projects. Always get an error 500-message :( and I can’t use your contact form either. then I get this message:

    The change you wanted was rejected.

    Maybe you tried to change something you didn’t have access to.

    Whats this about?

    Could you please revise the “Line the Charlie Bag” How-to. Steps 5 to 9 are really hard to understand.

    Maybe I am making things waaaaay to difficult, or perhaps being pent up with my sewing machine for several hours straight has lowered my instruction following I.Q. to an all time low BUT….

    I am trying to sew the waistband on the Marie Skirt (pattern # 9177) and I am lost! I am onto step 6 and when the instructions say “pin the reinforced waistbands right sides facing onto the upper skirt edge” – Reinforced? what am i doing wrong? how do i reinforce the waistbands? Thanks so very much in advance for any help you can offer.

    Scatterbrained, ForMathilda

    Hi there! One member helped me to translate my question so you can understand me better. I am using Pattern Maker to create patterns, but I don´t know how to make a technical drawing of the pattern. Does anyone know how to do this in Pattern Maker? I would like to upload some patterns, and I would like to have computer drawn technical drawings of the patterns. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hey guys: I love the new look; well done and thank you for all the hard work you guys do. My life is enriched by this site.

    One thing I miss about the old format: “view all” I miss being able to click “view all” and having all the photos uploaded for a project load and appear on one page. Any chance we could get a “view all” button in this format? It would be nice not to have to click back and load each photo individually. Thanks, love love love.

    hey guys, while i love the new site, i’m sorry to say that some of my how-tos didn’t quite make the cross-over. i think i had aboout for, and only one has joined me on this side; how to plait/braid while how to make a no-sew headband, how to make an easy laptop sleeve and how to make a glamourous personalised scrapbook have all run away and hidden from me… so i was just wondering if you knew where they were? thank you keep up the good work :)
