Blushing nudes and pinks give the Feline Attitude a refined look. These sophisticated designs are from the October 2013 issue of Burda Style magazine. Lighten up your fall wardrobe with these lovely patterns!

Unexpected pleat placement at the hips makes a sexy silhouette that shows off your curves. This V Neck Dress is sewn in a soft jersey knit that hugs the body.

The classic suited look never goes out of style. Make this stylish Wool Blazer in a structured wool to top off your professional look through colder weather.

One side of the Princess Seam Godet Skirt shows off your curves while the sweeping godet gives you room to move. This feminine silhouette is a nice change from tight pencil skirts. Add a little sex appeal with a platform pump.

Don’t worry about where to put your keys and lipstick on a night out in this Skirt. Exposed large pockets are functional and decorative. A great piece to wear to the office!

Step out in style in this roomy Round Coat. The round shape has a retro vibe. Get a totally mod look with round sunglasses and cigarette pants!

A simple long sleeved shirt gets a feminine touch from subtle puffed shoulders. This is a great piece to tuck into skirts and slacks instead of your usual button up shirt.

This Portrait Neck Top has such a pretty neckline to show off your decolletage and neck. A subtle peplum adds a dressy touch to skinny pants or skirts, and gives you a great hourglass look. A great flattering piece for nights you want to look your best!

This Luxe Tee is anything but your basic tee. Make a structured top to pair with all your skinny pants. The paneled shape is so sophisticated.

Go for a paneled Tee Dress with Pockets when you want to stand out from the crowd. This loose fitting dress looks beautiful in a structured fabric with some texture or shine.

Classic designs in blushing neutrals are a lighter take on fall dressing. Add these timeless pieces to your wardrobe and dust off the pearl earrings for refined daytime looks.

    i just bought this pattern and now am realising the neck line and sleeve are only finished with an overlock stitch which is wierd becasue it calls for blouse fabrics with some body. – not a knit – I am worried that it will look cruddy after a wearing or two! disappointed. think I will put a hem in the sleeve and make a facing for the neckline. has anyone made this?

    Love the long skirt. I’ll take off the waistband (don’t suit waistbands) and will have both sides with the drape. Very sophisticated and elegant.

    Thank you Burda and keep up the good work. Love seeing the constant changes to your website.

    I’m quite the novice..but I bought the Luxe Tee – without realising it was a Tall (didn’t even think to check the size on the left!) …oh well! Question: Is the size markings on the Side Piece with Sleeves correct – I thought the sizes are marked around the wrong way?? Thanks! I’m already struggling with the directions.. but will soldier on!

    I like the blazer and the long sleeved shirt. I also like the Portrait Neck Top. Not a fan of the godet skirt because I am not a fan of the hemline that being said it would be easy enough to go back to the classic pencil skirt shape which I much prefer.

    Love the long sleeved shirt with pouffy sleeves, the princess seam godet skirt, the luxe tee, and of course, the v-neck dress. All so gorgeous!

    Is the sizing indicated for the Luxe Tee and Tee Dress correct? The stated sizes are 72, 76, 80, 84, 88 … Is this correct?!

      These are Tall sizes, yes. For example, 88 and 44 have the same bust-waist-hips measurements, but 88 is taller. You can easily shorten the patterns down to regular size.

    Love everything except the poofy sleeve blouse and and the boxy things. Love the dress – wow! Love the asymmetrical skirt – vavavoom! And the Portrait Neck Top is really pretty. :-)

    That portrait-neck top and patch pocket skirt get my vote. I also like the wool blazer, but fear it’s above my skill set.

      I think that unless you don’t sew at all, you should be able to make the blazer. The pattern is rated for a novice. There may be a few more seams and a lining, but it is not fitted and you don’t even have to make buttonholes! I say go for it!

      Oy! Don’t you recognize an excuse when you see one? LOL. Truthfully, though, it’s the collar that scares me! The last time I made a collar, it made the shirt unwearable.

      However, I didn’t realize this was a novice rating, so I’ll go check it out. When (if?) my October issue arrives, I’ll consider giving it a go. I actually do have wool fabric, so I’m running out of excuses. Demmit! :)
