Be sexy and dramatic in this all black collection from the January 2012 issue of Burda Style magazine. A pencil skirt with sheer overlay, body-conscious strapless dress, and cool leather jacket help find your provocative side.

This racy little Seamed Strapless Dress in stretch suede is just the thing to feel like a total knockout. An empire waist and princess seams show off your curves and add a little structure. Just add some heels and practice your bombshell walk.

This Sheer Wrap Sweater is like a bed jacket you can wear out. Spice up your skinny jeans or tie this wrapper over a dress for a romantic ballerina look with a hint of lingerie style.

Show off those arms in this tiny little Cap Sleeve Top. The minimalist design has contrasting cap sleeves, a hidden zip, and darts for a great fit. A great top for all your high waisted pants and skirts!

Want a fun change from peacoats and blazers? This Paneled Coat has hidden pockets and plenty of interest to spice up your outerwear. This coat is made without lapels to reduce bulk and looks great with a scarf.

Bare one shoulder in this figure conscious Dress. Ruching on the other side hugs your waits. This dress just needs a stylish pair of heels and earrings to be a perfect party outfit.

This is the perfect pencil skirt for a hot date night! A sheer overlay gives this skirt a flirty appeal and princess seams flatter your curves. Don’t forget silk stockings for extra drama.

Satin bomber jackets were all the rage in the fifties. This Slouchy Satin Jacket goes modern with a slouchy silhouette that looks effortlessly cool. You’ll be warm and chic whether you’re out for a motorcycle ride or just running errands.

Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto said “black is modest and arrogant at the same time,” and we agree. This collection is sophisticated and seductive. These pieces would also look lovely in saturated fall shades like emerald and plum.

Happy sewing!

    Like it, ALL of it, and that’s a first for me. Especially the little cap sleeved top, quite different from anything I have seen Burda offer so far.

    Loving everything in this collection! I especially like the reinterpretation of the Cozy Sweater pattern as the Slouchy Satin Jacket; really remarkable what a change in fabric can do.
