I must be doing something wrong! I went to the pattern sites to choose a
few patterns to pick up at our local store so that I did not have to spend
more time than was necessary at the counter. I was only able to pick one up that I wanted because the no.s I chose on the pc were not in the pattern
books at the store(like Burda) for intance, the re were 5 digits on the pat.
and no such thing at the store. Can someone please enlighten this old gal?

I'm not sure about Burda because I haven't ever used those, but I did recently go online and select lots of Simplicity and McCall patterns and when I went to select them at the store I was able to go and find the patterns I wanted using those numbers.
Maybe you were looking at a specific site that sold those pattern and listed them under their "own" numbers...that is my only guess. Maybe someone else will be able to further enlighten you~good luck!

mgf~ :wink:

MGF......I also chose some patterns on the pc that were Vogue
and McCalls and was able to get a couple of those that were in my
store but no luck on the Burda. I just checked on the same web
page and they still list them with 5 digit no.s yet they are not in the
store. Funny also is the same site has a Burda pat. with a 5 digit no.
that I gota few days earlier at my local fabric store with a totally
diff. 4 digit no. Am I losing it or what?

Perhaps looking in the wrong spot?

For example
1. go the Young Fashion
2. select the first one [asymmetrical dresses]
3. If you look at the number 29604bur - that is's item number to buy the pattern NOT the pattern number
4. select "click here" and a pdf comes up
5. there you go - pattern number 8309

Hope this helps.....

Auzzi.....You are :up: areal dear...I am never going to
fully become friends with this machine(pc) no matter
how much my son tries to educate me on what it can
We had a sale at the locale fabric store and had I but
known how to bring up the numbers as you so kindly
explained, I would have bought the ones I wanted at a
price much lower than normal. (Next time!)
Thank you.
