Dress for the urban jungle in these khaki staples. Trenchcoats, jackets, and separates have you covered. These patterns are from the August 2010 issue of Burda Style magazine. All instructions to previously published patterns have been updated.


The Knee Length Skirt gets added detail from lapped seams. This piece is sleek and sophisticated, especially with a crisp white blouse and nude heels.


A knee length coat is streamlined with just the essential details: a tie belt and wide lapels. Pure minimalism.


Skinny trousers are dressed up with a zipper at each inseam and petersham ribbon. They’ll class up your work look in bright white.


A hip length Short Wide Lapel Coat is perfect for the city. This one has large lapels, raglan sleeves, and flap pockets. It’s tied up with a casual sash.


This Standing Collar Coat has military style with a hidden closure and crisp stand up collar. It’s slightly fitted with diagonal darts.


Your classic white blouse. This style has a concealed button front, understated lapels, and wide cuff sleeves for a fancy touch.


Whip up this cozy wraparound cape for chilly days. You can style it for a glamorous look, or just wrap up by the campfire in this fun cape and a pair of jeans.

This collection has beautiful khaki coats for every style. Whether you need a full length coat or just a short topper, you’ll find a fall jacket here.

Happy sewing!

    briefigs has a good point, it would be great to get these patterns in bigger sizes too. I’m 179 cm tall and size 46-48, so desperately needing nice patterns (like above) in plus sizes… Plus size patterns are easy to lengthen for myself, much easier than hunting all shops for clothes designed for tall women…

    I really like a number of these designs and the styling. Camel doesn’t suit me but I could see a number of these garments in Navy which would work just as well.

    BurdaStyle, these are beautiful patterns!! Please, PLEASE start grading all your patterns (especially this collection) for plus sizes instead of making things like the frumpy Gallery Collection. I would buy this whole set if they were available in size 50.
