Embrace drizzly fall weather with this chic collection in shades of grey. Mix these urban designs with sneakers and black and white basics. These patterns are from the November 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine.

_105c

This crewneck Pleated Blouse has more just a few subtle details, like a wide pleat at the front and piping at the neckline and sleeve hems. Wear it with skinny jeans and ballet flats for a weekday lunch date.

_104

A Long Patterned Coat with no belt loops or closures is perfect for trying a funky print. Instead, it’s closed up with a sash.

_108c

This dress is cut like a narrow sheath down past the hips, then flares out at the hem with a series of godets. You’ll get flirty movement with every step, so take it out with some fun heels.

_117

These are true Skinny Pants, tight from hip to hem with a zip fly and zips at the ankle. They stand out in patterned fabric with faux leather insets above and below the knee.

_109b

Three different jacquard patterns are patchworked together for this unusual long Silk Jacket. It’s left open with no lapels or fastenings so the focus stays on the patchwork.

_113B

The Two Tone Long Sleeved Tee has the effect of a cap sleeved top worn over a long sleeved tee, but it’s two shirts in one. Stretch jersey doesn’t have too much bulk and is nice and casual. Wear this tee with jeans.

_114

Get a comfy but sleek look in these elastic jersey High Waisted Leggings. The ultra high waisted shape is streamlined with darts and a side zip, so you’ll look long and lean.

_115

Front and back pleats give this knee Midi Skirt structure and volume. Heighten the effect with fabrics that have some body. This skirt sits snug on the waist because it doesn’t have a waistband, and is closed with a zip fly.

_116

Get warm in a hurry in this easy to sew shrug Jacket. It makes a great gift and can be sewn in a flash. Use a knit fabric or faux fur for a fancier look.

This collection is short on color so that the prints and details can shine through. Add a cool pair of sneakers or flats and a slouchy bag, and you’re ready to take on any city.

Happy sewing!

    Does anyone know where Burda shops for fabric? I would really love to use several of these choices!

    I agree with Petra! The plus-size market is enormous – makes no sense they don’t tap into it…

    Oh- and where are these patterns in the Plus size section?

    I really love the trousers, the coat and the jacket, but as always it is only available in small sizes.

    It is a pity..
