Problem solved and purchase is perfect (finally)!
Like Kristen (another reviewer) mentioned, I, too, had an issue with my purchase of this product. Fortunately for me Shellie, a fantastic customer service rep from BurdaStyle.com, came to my rescue and fixed the problem quickly. Now I have full access to all the wonderful patterns and videos in this collection and I can't wait to get started sewing. Thank you so much, Shellie for helping me because now my patterns are printed and soon I'll be sewing! Review by SkellyShelly (Posted on 9/5/2014)
Problem Resolved
So I did finally get the instructions via email and the rep said they were working to solve the problem (see my previous review called Cool, but...). Review by Kristen (Posted on 8/30/2014)
Waiting for revision
I'm very interested in this collection, but am waiting to see a written reply/confirmation on this page, that the sewing instructions have now been added for the Bow Blouse. What's the point of buying an incomplete pattern? Thank you. Review by Theresa (Posted on 8/29/2014)
Cool, but...
I love this concept and this is a great collection of patterns and video tutes, BUT I didn't get the sewing instruction download for the Bow Blouse (pattern 134) in this group. I've emailed both Interweave Store and BurdaStyle and have not heard back. Somewhat disappointing, and so that is why I've given this 3 stars, as the set is not complete at this writing.
