Burdastyle is an open-source sewing resource where members upload patterns and visitors can consult instructional references (below) or download pdf patterns (above). By providing instructions for how to sew at the same time as open source ‘code’ for what to sew the site is a real open source free fashion resource. As with free software, it would be interesting to see how clothing for specialized applications (work clothes, uniforms) could be generated by ‘users’ who are more familiar with the needs of unique populations that traditional ‘designers.’
