This Burdastyle fashion magazine was renewed as a gift to an avid sewer and she requests it each year because the patterns are very stylish, clearly written, and even when the article is complicated, she learns a lot about sewing from it. I love the up to date patterns that are for all types child, adult, plus size and more.


A really beautifully laid out English language version fashion magazine that includes all the patterns. That can let you make everything shown in it yourself. That is the Burda patterns English language version fashion magazine.

I am a regular fan of Burdastyle fashion magazine. I got this subscription and although it is a bit pricey for a magazine. It is really worth it for the amount of patterns you get every month. I think the fashion magazine does a pretty good job of presenting wardrobe basics as well as giving patterns for more trendy items. I always find several things that I want to make in each issue. The patterns I have tried have always turned out great and although the instructions are not as good as you get with individual patterns like Vogue or Simplicity. With that in mind I think Burdastyle is probably more for an intermediate to advanced level sewer who has the experience to overcome sometimes poor and vague instructions. Especially you are serious about apparel sewing. Burdastyle is an absolute treasure.

I have been using Burda sewing magazine patterns for several years. The plus sizes are actually made for plus sizes and not just graded up. The patterns fit real women and not just models. The instructions assume you know sewing basics since they teach sewing in Germany in their school. That is the only drawback. They do have one pattern per issue where they walk you through. If you are a beginner or need a refresher course, Fashion Magazine – An English language version fashion magazine Articles you can start with that pattern. You do have to trace out the pattern from the center sheets before cutting. You have to do with all sewing magazines. The photos give you several looks on real models and not just sketches. You have an idea how the item will look when you are done.

Try to get the fashion magazine in your native language because there are sewing hints even next to the photos to help you achieve the look including the fabric and trim they used. Sometimes they have crafty items. It is not my cup of tea. January 2011 had small children costumes. Each Burdastyle magazine had lots of women some plus sizes and some children sizes. There was no preteen or teen sizes. Once in a while there will be a men section. There was some knitting in December 2010. I think they were way off base throwing that in.

Now each Burdastyle issue has at least 40 regular size clothing patterns for women. The patterns have to be traced and the seam allowances added in. You can easily modify them this way and it is still easier than drafting them yourself. Burda patterns are the most fashion forward and best fitting patterns available and Burda is much more technically advanced than the American pattern companies.

Unique fashion accessories and home decorating projects are presented in a DIY format in every issue. The fashion magazine ventures beyond sewing with original crochet, knitting, and craft project patterns. Recent issues of Burdastyle for example featured a rug that you can crochet, a blanket and pillow to knit, a Fair Isle ski sweater to knit and smocking techniques for a pillow.

All the sewing magazine patterns are rated by sewing expertise. Every issue presents one pattern in a sewing course format to teach techniques and another pattern in a fully illustrated sewing lesson for beginners. The patterns are feminine with a definite European flair and even sportswear is more girly than sporty. The fashion magazine is beautifully photographed and the fashions are smartly styled on the most gorgeous models and of course using the most lure fabrics. The accompanying fashion copy gives helpful sewing hints, fabric tips, and styling ideas.
