BurdaStyle is a website where you can purchase patterns following the latest trends.  Patterns cost around $6 (per pattern), you pay online then download the pattern and print it off.  What you will get is a stack of A4 sheets of paper that you then need to stick together.  All sheets are well labelled so you can’t get it wrong.

I believe their sizing is true to size and consistent with all the items I have made so far.

Seam allowances are not included in these patterns so you must add them before cutting out your fabric.

BurdaStyle instructions are written only so there are no diagrams to help you along.  This can be difficult for absolute beginners.  For my students I am more than happy to assist you.

You can sign up to become a member at BurdaStyle.  Apart from being bombarded by what feels like hundreds of newsletters and updates, you can post pictures of the garments you have made, ask questions and be part of the sewing community.  You can also sell any items you make.  You can follow my profile MissMarySews over here.

BurdaStyle have an Academy which includes a range of Sew Alongs, online courses and video tutorials which I am yet to review.
