Has anyone sewn any of the Burda Magazine patterns that are available online at Burdastyle.com? Many of them are available for download for $5.40. It seems like a neat way to get patterns if that is the only one you want out of the magazine. Are they pretty easy to print out? Are they instructions the same as in the Burda magazine?

Hi Blessedtosew,

I have used both the paid and free patterns from the web-site. They print fine and are the same as magazine patterns, saves me some tracing time. Then again, I am used to printing patterns from using PMB. If you have never used these kind of patterns before expect a little slow going initially, but you would be taping them fast in no time. I tape my pattern pages together on a sunlit window. Makes it very easy.

As for the instructions, they are burda and from what I can tell, they are the same as the magazine, so if those work for you, you will be fine.

The site does have some free patterns. Maybe you can try one and see if you like the process before buying one.

ETA: You can see the instructions for even the paid patterns without buying it. There is tab for that when you look at the particular pattern.

I've made free and pay patterns from the Burdastyle site. I like them! The pay ones are nice if you like something in the magazine but like me, don't make enough things in the magazine to make it worth my while to buy every month.

I love the downloads. They're easy to print, just make sure you've got the correct page size (letter vs. A4)
Very easy to tape together - I usually do it on my train ride home from work, making panels of a reasonable size then taping the panels together at home.
I did have to trace my pattern after I taped it together so I could add seam allowances.

I like the downloads better than the magazine - I make mistakes with the tracing from the magazine.

Cheap fabrics, like cheap shoes, are a false economy.

Instead of tracing the pattern, you could then add a seam allowance directly on the pattern with a contrasting color pen.

Of all the available download patterns I like Burda the best. The easiest to print and assemble. The instructions are the same as the magazine but the patterns are better. No roadmap mess to contend with.

Thanks so much everyone. I will definitely do this. There is one pattern from two different magazines I want so this will save a lot of money.
