Wool tweeds shine in this cozy equestrian collection. Tailored shorts, a pretty A-line coat, and a wool biker vest put modern twists on fall classics. Wear these designs with textured tights and a smoky eye for a lovely seasonal look. These patterns are from the August 2011 issue of Burda Style magazine.

This Herringbone Vest is a fun new take on the biker vest. Go tough girl chic in this vest with zippered pockets, wide lapels, and snaps at the hip and shoulder. Outlaw style for ladies!

Shorts for fall are a total “do” in this classy buttoned style. These Corduroy Shorts have cute buttons at the side, a hip pocket, and a modest cut to wear with all your fall sweaters.

Top them off with the Double Button Jacket Get maximum detail with two rows of buttons, a back belt, and a back yoke. No cuffs and a short length keep it casual. Dust off your riding boots for an equestrian outfit.

Give your cold weather outfits an adorably feminine silhouette in this A-line Coat. A short collar, belted flared sleeves, and pretty trapeze shape have you covered up in style. Work this great shape with a fitted sweater and jeans!

Finish your look with this short and simple coat A back pleat gives it a little room to swing in the wind. This coat is understated in a simple tweed, but you could go for a mod look in a bright red or cobalt wool.

This boxy Ruffle Trim Bolero looks so cute with a belt to nip in the waist. Ruffled chiffon trim adds a little something extra to the boxy shape. For a dressier look, try another trim with a little sparkle!

The preppy look is simply sweet with an understated mini skirt. You’ll be ready for fall in this short skirt in a herringbone twill and some high heeled loafers.

Wrap yourself in warmth in this cozy sweater with pockets. This is such a trendy shape to throw over a tee shirt and leggings to keep warm. A great first project for sewing with heavier knits!

The Flannel Shirt with Jersey Sleeves gets a subtle makeover with a fun hem treatment, bust darts, and texture play at the sleeves. This is the perfect top to throw over leggings on a lazy day and still look stylish.

Flutter and frill in this girlie Ruffled Front Dress with ruffles to dress up the straight silhouette. This is a great one to go dancing in, because the ruffles have lots of movement. Wear it with T-strap heels for a flapper vibe.

Grey Gardens shows that darker shades can still be pretty and feminine. Why not explore menswear patterns like herringbone and tweed for this sedate collection? These pieces have such great details on grey days.

Happy sewing!

    Thanks for making a good amount of patterns starting at 34! That means I have to shrink it only 2 sizes! at 36 it’s hopeless!

    Very nice (mini skirt and sweater with pockets make my list). Although a few of these patterns are repeats from other issues.

    Yes, I was waiting for a collection that focused on fall coats! I like the variety of lengths, collar styles and closures…

    The flannel shirt is nice and simple too :)
