    The cutout dress has enough WOW factor to become timeless. The jumpsuit is simply FLATTERING. Love them both.

    Love the bubble dress, want to download it, but the sizes are odd – 78 to 86 – have never seen these before, and they are not on the sizing chart. I don’t really want a “mystery” sized dress! Can anyone help?

      these sizes are for tall people, these models are specialy designed for tall people. But the size is
      similar to the normal burda sizing, it will only be different in length. I hope this will help you?

    Is it just me, or do most of these projects look like they jumped out of a mid-80s fashion mag? I do like some of them, but the jump suit and front pleated trousers have got to go! I remember when I wore a jumpsuit out, I had to take the WHOLE thing off just to go to the bathroom, trying to keep the top, etc. from hitting the filthy floors. No way I’d wear one now!

    Can’t say that I have been impressed with the last few sets of trendy patterns that Burda is putting out. All of the clothes look odd and ill-fitting. It is disappointing, I would expect more out of Burdastyle.

    I guess these are just more examples of how trendy doesn’t equal good fashion.

    I like the cut out dress and the zipper blouse. The dress has a nice shape. The zipper jacket reminds me of my motorcycle jacket. :)

    I like the cutout dress. Are there any more patterns for these dresses?

    I loved the 2 tone blouse. The pleated gray skirt has no pattern reference, but it looks great!

    I like the jumpsuit (in grey) and the zippered blouse. I’m also strangley drawn to the bubble dress, it’s everything a dress shouldn’t be but somehow looks great!

    Hmm, I wouldn´t choose anything I guess… The bubble dress looks good for someone who´s about two years old. I like the colours mostly, but I´m not interested in these patterns…

    I think my husband would love the bubble dress, for sure ; ) Besides that, I would feel a bit uncomfortable wearing anything of this, exept mybe from the wrap over skirt.

    The jumpsuit and bubble dress are definitely my favourites.

    The jumpsuit looks so comfy and stylish too-have been thinking about making it and the wrap skirt looks like a quick make. I just can’t imagine the bubble dress being flattering when worn- it doesn’t look too great on the model. I really like the cutout dress – but can imagine it slipping on the shoulders too. although if a normal bra could be worn with it, then it would be quite easy to add loops inside the shoulder (bra guards) to hold it to the bra strap to stop it slipping.this works well for dresses with a low front and back that have wide enough shoulders:)

    Bubble Dress is fabulous!!! It is actually my next project, saw it about a month ago in the magazine and fell in love, just got fabric for it today :) Shame the dress is too large for this model, it doesn’t do it’s justice at all… I will make Cut Out Dress some time too :)

      I made this dress too as I loved it on sight. I wasn’t sure about it afterwards but following some sage advice from other members its a keeper!

    i love the color block look. the cutout dress & the contrast blouse are just gorgeous. this collection has a wonderful late 60s/early 70s futuristic flair.

    ~ this model cracks me up. with a face like a cute little elf, she looks like she’s actually having a good time.

    I love the cutout dress, but you can see it slipping off the shoulder of the model. I would be interested to know how to fit it to keep it in place. I would not make it, for fear of it constantly slipping like that. But, if someone knows of a construction technique to counter that, let me know; then I might give it a go!

      Exactly! I thought about the same thing instantly :). I think it´s too wide for her in the shoulders, but maybe the design is not very good.

    The cut out dress needs a modesty panel to make it more wearable..I’d use a bit of stretch lace, maybe with a mesh underlay to give me a little more coverage in the bust area. Also that pleated long skirt? So DIY…especially if you visit the bridal section at Vogue Fabrics in Evanston, IL. They can special order just about any sheer pleated fabric panel on display. Here we see grey pleats…but red pleats seem to be hot too.

      I had to look back to see what dress is the Cutout dress :-). Guess I’m not afraid of low necklines (small boobs). Anyway, it got me thinking!
      If you want to keep it more as it is, but be more covered, you could just make the front triangle a little bit higher than in the original, and not need a modesty panel.
      I also think it would look good with a sheer fabric all the way between the two triangles in front, and over all the naked back. In fact, think that could look really good!
