You can feel free to message me for a list of the patterns I have saved.  I'm happy to share!   Cool

<P>I only ever used the sloper pattern, but I saved some of them for my daughter to use when she's ready.  The sloper does not have sleeves, but I cheated and used a close-fitting sleeve from another pattern with only minor alterations. 

<P> I really did enjoy the inspiration of seeing what others have done with those patterns, so I hope people don't stop using them because of the charge.

I agree totally with the two last comments !
What I loved with Burdastyle is that whenever you are , any ways you have to produce you just needed a sewing machine and a computer!
Everybody had equal chances to create and we were all showing our creations and sharing! Creations from same patterns , which was very rich ! I loved to see creations from everywhere in the world , it was so great, you didnt need to "afford" it to create!
It's really something that will be lost! When I read about it I felt like 200 per cent in a consumer society, where money is the only key to survive and I was disgusted!
Anyone of you, my craftfriends can ask me of course for those i saved, I kept like 13 patterns I think! Tongue

Yeah, I noticed it last week too when I went nosing around for a dress pattern.  It's definitely annoying and feels kind of like Indian-giving.  "Oh, all those patterns we gave you as presents, we found out they're worth something and are taking them back now."

Anyway, an age ago I wanted to actually pay for one of their shirt patterns that never was free.  When I was getting into the checkout area and was going to put my cc information in I noticed there wasn't a little lock symbol on my computer window frame and got weirded out by how secure the site was.  I didn't buy from them in the end (my dad's always been very into financial internet security) and I wondered if anyone else had noticed that or knew about it.

Otherwise, I'm sticking to my 99cent sales at Hancock (and 3.99 vogue patterns).  Stock up when they go on sale!

Personally, as someone that has made patterns, it is hard work with lots of fittings which can get very expensive. I didn't know how they could sustain themselves giving things away for free. I think they should have free for a limited time when they first release a pattern it will be free, but then after say a month it will become pay so that people that are loyal to the website will get free patterns, but casual visitors will have to pay a small fee. I mainly look at patterns for inspiration and while I have visited the website, I have never made anything from it.

I see a lot of patterns I like on there. I am going to print and save them in my pattern storage. A lot of the free ones do well for the kind of wardrobe I want but I may buy some of the really awesome ones.

I am open to personal swaps (feedback is untrue)

Makes me glad I saved every pattern I liked as soon as I discovered that site last year. I have MANY of their formerly free patterns *wink wink* *nudge nudge* *hint hint*

does anyone have any of the plus size patterns saved ? I never saved any for lack of a printer and now we have one . Poo.

I think Nadine Plus was their first full-figure redraft, and I'm pretty sure that was after they started charging Sad If it was before the change, I'm sorry to say I didn't save it.

I know this topic is from a while ago, but is anyone still wiling to share the patterns they saved? Specifically Bella, Nichola and Hikaru.
I'm really sad about BurdaStyle changed their policy.  I discovered them about a year ago and finnally got around to downloading the patterns this summer only to find out they started charging.grr.

I'd love to do a personal swap for clear safety eyes (15mm or 18mm)
