This new designer pattern from burda style magazine’s November 2013 issue is fluid in silhouette and classic in style. The best part about this designer pattern by Alessia Giacobino is that both the blouse and skirt pieces are included, it’s like you are getting two patterns in one!
The blouse is long and loose in silhouette and has voluminous sleeve with gathers and pleats. Although the skirt embodies a straight silhouette, the center front fabric cascade adds a lovely touch of style that you could sew in a contrast fabric. I love the neutral colors that these garments are made in, and the lightweight nature of the fabric makes the style details flow together.

Here Is how I would style these pieces together, but they could easily be worn as separate. The blouse would look fabulous with a sleek pair of skinny jeans, and the skirt would look so elegant with a sparkling tank tucked in under a blazer. Above is a great way to wear these designer pieces to the office. Pair with a pointy pair of flats, some gold jewelry and a bold lip. How would you wear these pieces?
