Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style. This collection is from the August 2010 issue of Burda Style magazine. All instructions to previously published patterns have been updated.

_113

Every wardrobe needs a fitted Leather Jacket. Transform your outfit with this tough girl staple, complete with waist darts and a stand up collar.

_109

These Trousers have a classic straight leg fit with pleats at the waist. Classic menswear styling gets extra flair from decorative zippers at the inseam.

_107 and 106

This Blouse with Pocket has a straight menswear cut with a narrow collar and topstitched chest pocket. Tuck it in or belt it for a more feminine shape, or wear it open over a tank. A deeply Pleated Skirt has a wraparound look with more structure.

_101

Beat the weather in a stylish anorak jacket with a drawstring waist and hem. This piece has lots of detail, like snap pockets and a hood.

_104

An asymmetrical zip gives this windbreaker style Blouson Jacket that little something extra. The blouson fit goes over anything and is finished with a straight collar and snap pockets.

_106B

A straight menswear cut is offset by lightweight fabric in the Sheer Blouse with Pocket. This blouse has a thin round collar and a topstitched chest pocket.

_108A

Ankle length skinny Trousers with Back Pockets are a timeless style you can wear with everything. They look chic low slung with a white tank and boots.

_112

Layered jersey instantly makes your outfit look relaxed and casual. Slip on this soft and cozy Two Layer Top with jeans, trousers, or even shorts for a laid back look.

_110

A stand up collar gives this jacket a vintage military feeling. A boxy jacket with pockets toughens up your look and makes jeans and a tee put together.

Your casual outfits can be just as well styled as office separates and dresses. This collection mixes and matches, especially in go-with-everything shades of grey and navy.

Happy sewing!

    I’ve made the ‘slim leg’ pants twice and although it’s a nice pattern, the waist fits high, and so can’t really be worn ‘low slung’ the way they’ve managed to disguise it here with a belt and an overblouse. Also, as usual with Burda, you don’t ever really get ‘skinny’ but simply tapered.

    Here are links to photos of what I ended up with using this pattern and making them much slimmer than the pattern called for:

      I agree with you! The pants always look so fitted on the models but I always have to take them in when I sew them (waist and hips fit well though). In your experience is this the same case with patterns from other brands? I figured I have that problem because I’m short haha

    With the exception of the coat which I don’t like i think there are some really good pieces here and what I like about this photo shoot is that you can see the garments. I too think the styling is very good and this looks like a wearable collection.
