Eclectic, bohemian and colorful are all words to describe this stunning new collection from the March 2017 issue of BurdaStyle, which includes 10 new sewing patterns. Grab your most colorful printed fabrics from your stash, you’re going to fall in love with these new styles for spring and summer.
These vibrantly colored trousers – with a waistband and practical Italian pockets – are exactly tailored for the proportions of taller women. The cut is a classic style that also works well with dark color fabrics for a superb business wardrobe basic.
Don’t be afraid of the width – these palazzo pants with the high cut waist and a wide waistband still add an illusion of longer legs! Pair them with a silk top and heels for a look that replaces skirts or dresses for a night out…
It looks like a great deal of work, though it is quite easy thanks to the patchwork design of the printed fabric. This off the shoulder dress includes a smocked neckline band and a wide ruffle at the hem. Of course, you can naturally make your own patchwork by prepping the pattern pieces into different sizes of strips and adding seam allowances.
The spaghetti straps of this sweet babydoll style dress are knotted for an easy adjustment at the ruffled neckline. On cooler days, we would layer a cosy wool cardigan over it.
Maximum fashion drama! The sumptuous fabric isn’t the only show-stopper for this maxi skirt because the wide gathered panels and the overlapping wrap style are also incredibly sensational.
A cool look that is extremely versatile, this dress features a deep v-neckline and cuffed sleeves. Style it as a relaxed tunic by pairing it with boots or choose it as a cocktail dress and pair it with sexy high heels.
Perfect for styling with dresses and skirts. The boxy cropped jacket is cropped to the waistline – a stunning silhouette shaper. The clean lines are just right for this deep blue and crisp raffia and cotton weave fabric. The beautiful blue is exceptionally sharp with its combination of white and variegated accent.
The practically wrinkle-free jersey used for this relaxed dress with the ruffled sleeves and gathered band, makes it a perfect choice for dashing out the door. The plunging v-neckline is kept in place with bands tied at the back neckline.
Let the shoulders show a sexy flash of skin with this cold shoulder blouse sewn in a gleaming white linen. Wide bands shape the exaggerated neckline. Add an exotic finish to your style with a scarf wrapped into a turban.
The smocked neckline for this top sewn with a cheerfully striped challis can be adjusted up and down on the shoulders, as you prefer. This trend piece is certainly possible for sewists looking to increase their skills.
