    Hey Burdastyle Team, I have tried to join that Sewing Club thing in many ways, but i never seem to get any response from you guys. first I contacted the German lady, whose contact was shared on the German Burda website, which also introduced the sewing clubs. I would really LOVE to become a memeber, since i am already offering sewing classes in Heidelberg, Germany and will start a new and bigger and weekly sewing programme here, I think it would be cool to be part of the Burdastyle clubs. Can anyone help me??

    Thank you so much! Julia

    I really love all your patterns! Do you think that you could do a simple strapless summer dress?

    FAO ALISON. Next instalment!

    Whilst uploading ’Clare’s Kasia’ I managed to delete ‘Pink jacket’, so on my profile page I now have two comments about the jacket attached to the skirt! I then re-uploaded the jacket, and they both came up in ‘Just uploaded’ on the home page. They then moved down the list until they disappeared. Neither of them have shown up on the creations page, but the items that came after them have. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Alison, thanks for trying to solve my creations page problem. I have tried uploading using both methods, to no avail. The only thing I don’t understand is that when I press ‘save’ I get a message in red telling me there is a problem, and that the name already exists. It’s true that there are various ‘pink jacket’ creations, but does this mean I have to call it something else, or just ignore the message? I have only uploaded one other creation, and had no problem at all. I’m now going to try with a different creation, and see what happens. Hope you can sort this out. Thanks, Margaret.

    Hello Gang,

    I left a follow up message for Benedikta regarding obtaining some sliders for the American Cancer Society Bow Tie fund raiser. But I think she might be in Europe having a wonderful time???

    So, if any of you talk with her, could you ask her the status of my sliders???

    And yes, I’ve already ordered sliders using the link given in Nikkishell’s sewalong, but that didn’t give me what I needed.

    Thank you!

    I would like to make the Francesca 6024 dress in a Burda size 60 (woman’s plus size). How much yardage would I need for that size? I need to know if I have enough fabric.

    Thank you!

    I see you guys are now charging for a lot of you patterns. I think that in doing so you pretty much ruined the idea behind “open source” sewing. it’s not really open source anymore.

    sorry but it’s kinda true.

    I love this site, the patterns are great and the idea behind it is wonderful, but what I say is still true.

    thank you so very much for taking the time to view my profile and your love for Leon(the professional) as well. It is I who love YOUR creations- photos are brilliant! This site is truly an inspiring forum and a breath of fresh air (which is hard to come by in Brooklyn…fresh air, that is) for people like me who are always looking to improve in every way I possibly can. Thanks BurdaStyle! D.

    Burdastyle, The new ‘photos’ part of the site is awesome! I’ve already spent my whole morning flipping through the featured members and their sewing environments. I love seeing how other people have set up their stashes and such! Luckily this new addition to the site came after my finals at school, otherwise I don’t know how much studying would have been done. :) Keep up the great work, ReneeBeth

    Thanks for sharing great designs with us, I am very grateful, however are you aware that clothes which i have made from your patterns always turn out too large and sometimes ill fitting. It seems some of your other members are having this trouble. Please could you take this into account for future projects. Your patterns have cost me at lot of lost £’s in material.

    Dear Burdastyle, Finding your website a year ago is a BLESSING! THANK YOU so so so much for making a great awesomelishous splendiferous website! The things I learned from your tutorials, tips, blogs and the patterns y’all make are so great! I can make clothes for any kind of person, especially for my Mom who is a plus size. She doesn’t like to shop because of her size but she felt happy because I made her pants and a top for her from your patterns! I never thought I can find flattering patterns until I found your site. THANK YOU so much again!!! XOXO, Lindsay =)!

    I am impressed -the personal measurement cards arrived Monday and a big thank you for the kind pressie to my school kids – however – I must say your site needs a health warning attached!!! I’m getting a little addicted to finding out what everyone is doing and I am in serious danger of “finding my mojo” again regarding Burda patterns! Mind you I haven’t found too many pics of bodies of my age and type!!so it might be a while before I post myself wearing anything. Ooops – just realised how naive I am being….a body double is what I want for that! Cheers!

    What happened to the homepage? There is no pattern tab, the other tabs don’t respond, and I can only find this way to ask. I will keep trying to see if the error is at my end. Nehmah
