A romper, sheer dress, jersey pants, and tube top sparkle in sequins and shades of turquoise. Bring a little summer magic into your sewing! These designs are from the July 2011 issue of Burda Style magazine. All instructions for previously published patterns have been updated.


Lounge around in a pair of Floral Elastic Pants with a wide elastic waistband. This is a super easy make for a weekend or a beginner.


Glam up your beach look with a three quarter sleeve Sequin Jacket in all over sequins. This glitzy layering piece is a must for going out dancing or making a tank and shorts party perfect.


A long sleeved dress becomes a beach cover up in sheer jersey. Make it in a thicker stretch fabric for a pretty fall dress, or in a sheer floral for summer. A great beginner dress pattern!


Any stitcher can make the Net Top, a beginner tank pattern in lightweight mesh. It’s perfect for sports, the gym, or tossing over a bikini.


Playful meets glam in a strapless Sequin Romper. This piece makes an easy all-in-one party outfit, or a dressed up take on lazy day dressing. One piece is all you need!


An asymmetrical cascading ruffle gives this top a waterfall effect and a pretty neckline. Make it in printed chiffon so it can flutter in the summer breeze.


You won’t believe how easy it is to make this beautiful One Shoulder Dress. The fluttery silhouette is created using one simple shape for an impressive effect in sequined fabric.


Create curves in this mini Bubble Skirt with a little volume at the hip. Carefully placed pleats slim your waist and make a flattering silhouette.


Keep all eyes on you in a sparkly Sequinned Tube Top that shows off your shoulders. This attention grabbing piece is fun for birthdays, parties, or nights out dancing.

These designs sparkle and shine like the waves on a sunlit beach. Add a little more glitz and glam to those summer nights with a few sequins and eye catching color.

Happy sewing!
