Featured in the PR book!
Burda's website has some English-language tutorials, mostly on altering their patterns for fit. As of May 2008, they include:

- Shortening patterns
- The problem - large bust
- The problem - high waist
- The problem - narrow waist, wide hips
- The problem - If you have a little too much tummy ...
- How to make contrasting bands
- Spotlight on zippers (exposed zips on edges/in slits)

They're a little difficult to find, so I wanted to post the URL for everyone's reference (it's also in the link above):

Thanks so much, this is great info. As BWOF do not have any lines on thier patterns to shorten or lenghten.
