As long as I can remember in the Netherlands Burda World of Fashion (the magazine), was always just called “Burda”. It’s the same with Knip Mode, if someone would ask you where you found the pattern, you would answer “the Burda” or “the Knip”. In the past year the magazine has changed the name to BurdayStyle and on the internet the old links from the English site are now redirected to BurdayStyle.com.
I love the archives and tried to find them, using a link someone gave on a discussion thread on PatternReview. The English version of the archives is (still) here: http://www.burdamode.com:8080/en/Magazines/Archives/1270777-1463237.html
They can be found on the German site in the new style here: http://www.burdastyle.de/magazine/archiv/. Not all issues work with proper links to pictures, apparently it’s a work in progress.
The magazines from 2006 till July 2009 are in the tab Burda Modemagazin (the former German name), from August 2009 till now in the tab BurdaStyle.
And I’m still hoping (in vain most surely) for showing the fashion picture and line drawing together in one screen and a search function. What if you would get a list of possible patterns like this when searching for a coat pattern for example:
This is copied and pasted by taking screenshots and pasting them together. Too much work to do that for all the issues I have, so it would be nice to search the Burda site for it.
But there’s one thing I hope even more: that they go back to being a pattern magazine with inspiring patterns that you long to make instantly. I haven’t seen that for a long time. Let them not got the way of only making patterns available through downloading (it seems to me that they are experimenting more and more with downloads) or a magazine with a focus on craft items. You know my opinion on their crafts probably and I just don’t do the downloading and taping together of patterns. Too much hassle. Then I’ll have my beloved Burda back.
