I mostly sew from Burda envelope patterns, and quite often by this time in January the new spring pattern collection has already been announced. This year things are obviously a bit convoluted due to Burda's multi-staged, frustratingly glitchy switchover to a new Web format.

I just did some Google snooping to see what I could find out about the new collection, if anything, and found this discussion in a German forum:

Hobbyschneiderin* forum post re new spring/summer 2010 Burda patterns

It says that there are 90 new patterns, being released tomorrow. I can't figure out where this person learned about these details (unless perhaps she works for Burda?) -- the link she provides merely takes me back to the main German Burda Style page. But I did find the information here very interesting -- the look of the envelope is totally new, the name has been changed to Burda Style, and there are apparently (gasp) several new men's patterns. She also says something about how the catalogue is now organized somewhat differently, but I probably won't totally get what she's talking about until I've held the new catalogue in my hands when it arrives in our stores in a couple of months.

Just thought I'd share this bit of news. And naturally, as soon as I've snooped out the actual new collection post on the German site (ostensibly tomorrow), I'll post it here. Unless one of you beats me to it.

P.S. Oops -- possibly confusing -- "New look" in my subheading has nothing to do with "New Look" patterns. I just mean that the Burda (Style) patterns are being given a new look.

Well. that seems like very good news..I wonder if they will have patterns from the BurdaStyle site? I'll have to look through more carefully. 90 patterns seems like a lot of new ones at once.

Thank you for the link..she seems to write clearly and concisely..I go to the Burda German site when I get the urge to improve my junior high and college German(I should get that urge more frequently,lol) and now I have a new site to practice with. I was able to understand a great deal of her post...makes my day!
thanx again, jan

Last year's Burda spring/summer pattern collection had 86 patterns, so I think 90-ish is fairly typical for their first collection of the year. The fall/winter collection is smaller.

Do you mean you wonder if any of the new envelope patterns will be former BWOF/Burda Style patterns? If so, there always seem to be a handful that started out in the magazine.

I understood quite a lot without translating, too, but I confess I did eventually hit the "Translate" button to make sure I wasn't missing anything important. As usual, the "translation" was in bizarre broken English, but I guess it's still a somewhat useful tool for quick checks. Not for actual language-learning, mind.

P.S. Forgot to mention -- part of the reason I like to check the "new collection" information is that Burda always drops some patterns at this same time, and once these items are dropped (once the new catalogues have been sent to the stores), they're next to impossible to find.

Hmm, well that's interesting. The lady on that forum is now saying there are 92 new patterns ("Es sind 92 Schnittmuster neu"). I wonder if this number will reach 95 or more by tomorrow, lol.

90 still sounds a lot..McCall and Butterrick don't seem to do that many, even when you add in the pet clothes etc..of course, I've never counted..

They are about 9 hours ahead of me..I wonder if they will announce first thing in the morning? Theirs, not mine..now, I'm looking forward to it..

Joan, thanks for the heads up! I actually looked on the Burda site today to see if they had a new line of patterns out. I really like their pants so I'm hoping they have some new pants and capris! Martha

Yes, but Burda only puts out new pattern catalogues twice a year.

No doubt they will. Glad to know I'm not the only one who's been watching for the new collection. Sometimes it seems that the envelope patterns are considered ho-hum on here compared to the magazine patterns... which they aren't -- they just don't use glitzy fashion shots.

I get that feeling also, but I have seen several in envelope that I recognize from the magazine and I have a relativly small BWOF magazine collection...I used to buy them when JoAnn's first started to carry them and then they stopped for several years. I was happy when they brought them back as I do like the fit and the styling.

I love Burda envelope patterns but always feel a bit frustrated that they have so few reviews on PR, and some of the kids ones none at all. I just made a Burda skirt for the second time, the pattern is now OOP and it only ever had two reviews, one of them mine! I love the pattern though.....

They seem to be unpopular with US and Canadian sewers in particular. Are they harder to get, or more expensive there?

In the U.S., at least, yes, they're harder to get. JoAnn's carries them, but they are never marked down as much as the Big 4 patterns; the store doesn't carry every pattern, and only 1 or 2 of the ones they do carry. I like Burda envelope patterns a lot myself, but I'm choosy about which ones I actually buy.
