Here we have a lovely resort style pattern collection from the June 2013 issue of burda style magazine. The styles are all loose fitting and great for destination travels because of their layering capability and fabric choices. These designs are perfectly presented in printed and plain bright fabrics that are fun enough for summertime and sophisticated enough for the modern woman.

We love this silk Blouse with front pleats and wide neck band.

This slightly flared, knee-length Skirt with shaped waistband looks super sophisticated paired alongside our Three Quarter Blouse.

Every woman need a little Shift Dress in her wardrobe. This one is great with its decorative details and side inserts.

Breezy and light Pants like these, are a great bottom alternative for summer! These ones have large patch pockets to hold your sunglasses and lipstick with ease.

This casual Top is both lovely for day…and edgy for night with its princess panel seamlines.

This One Shoulder Maxi dress is the essence of resort wear. It blows in the breezes and flatters any woman.

Here is a lovely Jacket in bouclé with raglan sleeves, patch pockets and piping. We love it worn with these Cuffed Shorts, makes a great resort outfit!

This bright Dress would work for fancy dinners and cocktail hour near the breeze. The lovely movement is created from the pleats at the shoulder and waistline with decorative flowers.

Happy Sewing!

    I love the One Shoulder Maxi. I regret I didn’t buy some rayon fabric when it was on sale a couple weeks ago. It would be perfect for this dress. The pants look great too!

    This entire collection is so pretty. I have a case of the “shiny object syndrome” right now, though. Where can I get one of those crystal necklaces (paired with the blouse and knee-length skirt in pic #2)? It is stunning and a perfect match with this collection. My summer wardrobe just isn’t complete without it. Info?? :)

      According to my magazine, the necklace is by Marina Rinaldi. Hope that helps!

    I am in love with this collection. But let me not get ahead of myself because I haven’t even completed sewing my first burda pattern……but I can definitely see my self making and wearing several of the peices in this collection!

    When I started sewing for myself (30+ years ago – I was a kid!) and you could get a hold of European patterns, everything was very different than the N. America offerings. At that time, what was stylish in Europe took at least two years to get to N.America, sometimes longer! It isn’t that long anymore, but there is stil lag time! I find Burda sometimes not that great, but then I look over old pattern mags and find exactly what I’m looking for and sure enough, the mag is from a year or two earlier! So hold onto your Burda’s! That item you didn’t like in any collection will probably appeal to you next year or the year after and you won’t be able to find a pattern for it except in an old Burda!

    A number of these patterns are very nice and could be useful in a wardrobe what I don’t like though are all the patch pockets and their placement particularly on the long trousers which is not the most flattering placement for a woman with hips. I also do not like the flower detail on the purple dress. The gathering around the flowers doesn’t sit that well particularly on the chest and makes an otherwise sophisticated shape kind of frumpy. Also the design detail in the shift dress is kind of lost which is a shame because a bolder fabric choice which showed this detail could in turn be more flattering to the figure. All in all a better collection though than I have seen in sometime on this site.

      The collection us just the beginning. How we alter each one to make it our own is the creativity.

      Exactly! the beauty of these sewing patterns is that we may alter them in any way. Change the placement of things and omit certain details.

    Almost all this collection would suit plus sizes – why can’t we have some if your lovely styling from your regular range in the BIG sizes?!? The plus size offerings are SO dowdy in comparison to your regular styles!

      I agree they would be so flattering – is there any chance you would size them up? I would gladly buy most of the collection!

      Since some of these styles are loose fitting, they could easily graded up from the largest size!

    I love the pants! 1/10 isn’t bad. Haven’t liked new patterns for quite some time. I do like the pants though!

      Same! I want to make them, except I am short so I don’t know if these would suit me. I guess I will have to wear tall heels or wedges with them haha.
