Whip up these designs in warm, sultry red. Structured jackets, pretty knee length dresses, and a lovely kimono top are absolutely feminine. These patterns are from the November 2011 issue of Burda Style magazine.

Add a romantic layer to any outfit with a red Velvet Jacket. This little jacket has a subtle flare at the hip and an interesting shoulder treatment for a little structure.

This flirty skirt has pleats for movement and no waistband for a slim fit.

This casual tee dress has hidden pockets and one gathered sleeve for a little punch.

Gathers soften a V neckline and meet in a wide waistband in this ladylike Banded Dress. This slim design is fitted with a walking slit at the back and makes a sophisticated cocktail dress.

This gorgeous red Duffle Coat will never go out of style. Suede-trimmed toggle fastenings, a roomy hood, and deep pockets are functional details with timeless style. A great pattern for any brightly hued wool!

Ruffles twist down the front of the Twingings Dress and give it just enough interest. The slim shape gives you a timeless look with simple pumps.

This flowy Kimono Wrap Top is lovely for a romantic date. The flowing sleeves look beautiful from the front or back and flutter when you move.

You’ll want to make a grand exit in this Cape Back Blazer with its pretty statement back. A cape-like silhouette adds a little feminine drama to this blazer.

From bright crimson and cranberry to deep merlot, shades of red make enchanting garments. These pieces would look lovely on a date or at a winter party. Bring a little drama to your next holiday with a red sheath dress or eye catching coat.

Happy sewing!

      Yes. The article mentions they’re from the 11/11 issue. They have been going back and releasing them digitally on this website.

    I like the classic Duffle Coatl The pleated skirt – I know it would not work on my body, and it sure seems to have some interesting fold/pleats.

    The Duffle Coat is my favorite. I’m a sucker for anything with toggles!

    This was a great issue. I’m glad you finally offered these patterns digitally to the American audience. The red cape jacket is one of my favorite patterns Burda has ever produced. It’s really cool. Other than that, the banded dress is cute. The duffle coat is great, and the kimono wrap top is cute, but I think I’d shorten the two front pieces while lengthening the band so that it sits a little below my waist.

    This was also a fun photoshoot.

      Have you made the red cape jacket? Any comments on it? It’s on ‘one day’ list.

      I haven’t made it. Ever since I had a baby and started working from home, my sewing time has gone pfft! But it’s on my “to make” list. I even have the fabric for it. :/
