Link to Burda patterns

For those of you who don't know it is possible to access Burda magazine patterns, available for download/purchase from the German website here.

Now for the life of me I don't know why this service has not been available to English readers, but it does reinforce my suspicion that they are moving towards digital production. I know magazines in general are a declining business so maybe that's why.

In the meantime this is one way to still access the patterns without having to buy every issue of the magazine. I am not sure that all that many of the current styles grab me, however I am on the look out for a good winter coat pattern and so I am going to keep my eye on this site for those. There are usually not a lot of coat patterns to choose from in the Big Four.

Hi.
I came across your post while looking for Burda patterns. It's pretty cool that you can now purchase them and download them right away. I just wanted to mention, that I also found on Sewingpatterns.com a bunch of downloadable patterns from the big 4 companies (mccalls, butterick, simplicity...) Burda was also included. I'm going to buy one and see how it goes. I'll keep you posted.
