    Ohhh, now I understand why exposed zippers and jeggings haven’t really been on the site before now (Thanks, elishafaerie! :-) ). In Denmark, we’ve been wearing jeggings since spring/summer 2009 and the exposed zippers isn’t super-trendy anymore.

    Don’t really understand the problem. If you think a single pattern from Burda Magazine is too expensive compared to the whole magazine, why not buy the whole magazine? It’s about 4-9EU a month/per issue. Not a fortune.

      That’s what I was thinking, too! Just go on amazon.com and get the subscription, people! And Vogue has a sale about once a month where you can get their patterns for $3.99 each instead of $18-$20. Maybe if Burda has sales every now and then, people would calm down. Although, if you take into account the fact that most patterns are free, paying $5.40 every now and then still means you aren’t paying that much on average for your patterns.

    the magazine will all the proyects costs EUR3.95, so I do think that they have gone a bot over the top with the prices on the web…

    I haven’t bought a burdastyle pattern yet, but I don’t think $5.40 is too much to ask. However if you want to buy $10 dresses from the high street as discussed in these comments then consider the real cost of these clothes. The real cost being that children in countries such as India and China are getting paid 20c to make up your $10 dress; if you can live with that sort of exploitation then by all means buy from the high street.

    I don’t mind paying for patterns, but $5.40 is quite expensive, and if you add the cost of the materials, with all the time put into it as well it does cost as much as dress from a high street shop. I think it’s quite reasonable for the designers to charge, but if it costs so much to produce a pattern why did it used to be so much cheaper or even free?

    I wish I understood the ATTITUDE of some of the people on this site. This site gave people something for free for awhile, and are they grateful for that? No. When a small fee is started being charged, they feel they actually have a right to complain that you’re not giving them MORE and MORE and MORE for free. It reminds me of spoiled children who think they are owed the world. A lot of work goes into developing patterns. I was just looking at some new Vogue patterns and they cost over $20 each [which yes, I do think is too expensive, but I don’t HAVE to buy them]. p.s. I’d love to know where TanyaDenning gets RTW dresses for $10 each…perhaps the Salvation Army?

      Opinions are fine but don’t attack people’s characters “spoiled children”.. That’s rude, people disagree with you doesn’t mean they’re bad people. IMO $5.20 is expensive especially because the magazines themselves aren’t that much more. This is ideal for people who can’t get the magazines but perhaps $3-4 would be better

    I agree with Bynn. For a site to advertise free patterns I would’ve thought you would’ve highlighted the free patterns on the e-newsletter. Seems like you entice us with great clothes and we think it’s a free pattern, then we get disappointed when it shows up as a $5.40 cost. Granted it’s not much, but it adds up after just a few. For $20 I can buy a couple of dresses and save myself the trouble of making them.

    I find it very upsetting that a site I joined for the free patterns and member ideas and variations has gone so money-hungry. While this is a charming piece, I have noticed nothing but an upswing in pattern pricing from this company, who originally started as a free-source site.

    Then they started charging for patterns – but only $1 or $2 a piece, which made a liar out of whoever said that Burda style was free-source, but was not unreasonable. Now we’re up to $5.40 on a site that started it’s life as one of free-sharing of beautiful clothes and ideas. This jump has taken less than 18 months.

    I seriously suggest starting to offer sales if you’re going to up your rates this consistently, or start offering buy 1-get 1 or 2 at half price deals or something. It’s time to get back some of Burda’s original dignity and customer orientation. At least that’s my opinion, and I’m sure others see it differently.

    I can´t see the point why you sell the same patterns now as available long ago on www.burdastyle.de but more expensive!!!???http://www.burdastyle.de/schnittmuster/schnitte-aus-dem-heft/burda-style-01-2010/kleid_pid_90_3864.html

      Maybe if my German was better . . ! Sigh. The best I could do is go “da drüben” to the German site! (I am sure my grammar is appalling)

      I am just annoyed that my Australian $ is buying a lot more € now that it did when I was in Germany . . am sure you are not so glad . . Damn that GFC).

      I agree that it shouldn’t be more expensive, which it is by nearly US$1 than it would be by conversion from the Euro, but as to why it appears on here later than the burdastyle.de site is because western nations like the US and Australia often get fashion trends about a year or so after they’ve appeared in Europe.
