German management at Burda may be out of touch with their customer, but not so the Russian office. Look what someone on PR , sorry I don't know who it was, found over on Russian Burda. After spending hours looking for the technical drawings for my planing storyboards I found this fabulous site that would have cut my time in half. Burda Index
Look what you get! If you click on an issue you get a picture of the issue, all the pages linked and if you look under the photo, you get links to all the photos in that issue that you can click on the one you like and get to the photo plus the technical drawing, plus the page it's on. How cool is that? If you click on the second link below the photo you will find all of the technical drawings for the issue all of them linked to it's proper page showing photo, technical drawing and issue page where you can find it. Pretty much what we Burda readers have been looking for. The only thing that I can't figure out so far is how to actually get one of these pages to show up here. But the links should work. Someone already translated the pages, which is what I've linked to. Sigrid said that she tried the Dutch translation but that the English is better.
They also seem to have free download patterns. There's lots to explore on the site besides the indexes. Have Fun!
I promise to have sewing progress on my coat for you shortly. It's coming along slowly, but well and I am enjoying sewing a coat again. This isn't a very complicated coat but I enjoyed working out the pattern changes.
