- Missing the Vintage Dress Pattern
As other reviewers have mentioned, the patterns are presented in a somewhat disorganized manner, but it's not too bad. The price could be a little better, considering that you can order a physical back-issue from GLP News for $12 (shipping included).
Whether this is worth it for you depends on how quickly you need these patterns, and how you feel about pdf patterns in general. Most of the patterns in this issue take about 20ish pages to print out, with the bigger ones (e.g. coats and dresses) taking 40-70 pages.
My main point of dissatisfaction with this kit is that it doesn't include pattern #126 from the January 2015 issue, a vintage dress pattern. You can see it on the Russian Burda website: http://burdastyle.ru/vikroyki/platya/plate-otreznoe-po-talii-burda-2015-1-126/
I don't know whether the omission was deliberate or accidental; nevertheless, this kit does NOT contain all the patterns in this issue. (Posted on 7/21/2015)
- I just downloaded the Jan 2015 flagship kit. I received about 18 links to PDFs that included patterns in sizes 36 to 44. Seam allowances are not included in this issue like the patterns you buy in the store form Burda. I am looking through and clicking on my links and no magazine just table of contents, patterns to cut out, instructions, a one outfit sew along. I called customer service and the lady had to ask a supervisor and then got back to me saying this kit does not include the digital version of the magazine. I back order other Burda digital pattern books and they had all the patterns and including a digital version of the magazine as a reference. Because if you bought the magazine you would get the patterns in there anyway. I think customer service does not know what they are talking about. (Posted on 2/26/2015)
- A good Buy - Keep them coming
I love Burda patterns because they are so fashion forward and so well drafted. I don't like tracing those inserts that come with the magazine. That's what drew me to this downloadable version.
All the patterns come as separate pdfs (that you print, tape and cut out at home). I need to stress that you can individually print here because when the US version of the Burda magazine came out they had you download those overlapping patterns but this in the case here.
Every pattern plus the "Sewing course" which is actually just instructions with illustrations comes just as my January print issue has it. It is the same magazine just as a pdf.
As another reviewer noted - "there are no pictures of the items included in this kit - you must use the table of contents for each "collection" and match it up with the garment in the magazine to see what it looks like. Page numbers are included in the Table of Contents for each collection."
I hope that future issues have pictures so that you can see what is in your pattern library - its an over-site that is worth fixing Interweave.
While this is a pricey version of the print magazine (really it should be less since they aren't out printing paper or postage), I still prefer it to tracing the patterns. So let's hope Interweave offers this for each month;s patterns and let's demand they add a picture catalogue of patterns in their magazine somewhere.

- All the Patterns for the European Version of BurdaStyle
I decided to be the test subject for this item since it was not clear in the description or any social media what exactly this kit is.
I am a subscriber to both the European (UK) & American versions of BurdaStyle, so I can compare what I just bought here vs those two publications. This kit seems to be ALL the patterns from my UK version of the magazine in January. Like the American version, not all the patterns are included in the magazine, though most are. This kit seems to be a digital download of each pattern that was featured in the magazine.
There are no pictures of the items included in this kit - you must use the table of contents for each "collection" and match it up with the garment in the magazine to see what it looks like. Page numbers are included in the Table of Contents for each collection.
I find it strange that Interweave only sells the US version of the magazine and now the European kit. I'm hoping this means that Interweave will soon also start selling the European version of the magazine so that I do not have to pay ~$100/year for the a subscription & shipping for the UK magazine.
