    nearly every time burdastyle posts patterns people make comments about the available sizes. these patterns are from burda magazine. in each monthly issue there are usually 4 collections in sizes 36 to 44. 1 childrens collection. and 1 collection in sizes 44 to 52. burda also publishes a plus edition twice a year, although often with duplicate patterns from that year’s monthly issues.

    i suggest you lobby burda to publish a plus edition of their monthly magazine. i can understand that you feel slighted by the lack of plus patterns both here & in the magazine. while burda’s plus patterns are often ridiculously beautiful (i have a few pages up on my inspiration wall) i can imagine i’d be pretty bummed if all i got was 1 collection to peruse instead of a whole magazine.

    I love this ensemble. As an architect, I am always leaning toward fashion that is interesting and “architectural”. And as a middle aged woman who has kept herself in shape, it is refreshing to find an outfit that is not geared toward those who are labeled as “Queen-size.” In this market, I find it difficult finding clothes that I don’t swim in but that are not skin-tight either.

    Have to agree with several others. I DO NOT CARE FOR THIS LINE. There are so many of us that are not pencil thin and we also must look stylish for work and want to for play. Look around for a designer that designs for the more full figured ladies.

    Beautiful jacket! But sadly, I’m tall and wide in the shoulders and bust; even at 5’11" and 150 lbs I need a plus size. So many patterns stop at tiny sizes. I like to sew for my long arms and legs but hahah the patterns are even smaller than store-bought clothes. I realize designers hate seeing their designs on big women but you know, we like to look fashionable too.

    hmmm… not so sure about these… the blazers look ill fitted. Not sure these styles suit many figures other than the pencil thin models shown. and please STOP with the hipster glasses.

    Some of these patterns would be really great…. if they came in sizes larger than a US12.

    I’m unusually impressed with this collection of patterns from the magazine. The sleeveless blouse is SO pretty, the asymmetrical blazer spot on (but I’d make it slightly more fitted and a little shorter, to give me more shape), the trousers PERFECT and the jumpsuit is cool (I’m usually not a big fan of jumpsuits/rompers). Love it!

    I just spent an extended weekend in Berlin (loved it too!), and tried to buy the September issue of Burdastyle there, but number 10/2011 was already out, so I got that one instead (AND Burda Easy. Souvenirs!). I like no 09/2011 a lot better, no 10 is less fashion forward, less exciting for me, but there are a few nice things in there. And the magazine itself is a LOT nicer than in Sweden, better paper, everything, just like it used to be here. And cheaper. Oh well… this one I’ll get anyway :-). Fingers crossed it’s still available!

    I loved the sleeveless blouse so much I purchased it. Except when I printed it out and started looking over the pattern to put it together, I realized I had received the file for the dress!! I’d just like the blouse pattern please! Anyone else have this happen to them? I’m still waiting for a response from Burda :(

      Just don’t put the sleeves in and shorten the pattern. Otherwise it’s the same. And as a bonus you can make the dress too, with or without the sleeves.

    I really like the sleeveless blouse, will hopefully sew it soon, i have a hammered charmeuse that would be perfect. The blazer looks great in the white fabric, not so good in the green, probably because it is too flimsy. I like that is doesn’t have a collar and the raised neckline requires a stiffer fabric. It looks very effortless and is probably a quick sewing project since there is a single button and no collar.

    I like the sleeveless blouse. The blazer looks over-sized and sloppy. The shirt dress and the jump suit look like something from a futurist/dystopic prison… and not very flattering to boot (though that may be in part due to the color choices).

    This is one of my favorite mags ever and I have an urge to make all of these except the jumpsuit. I love the assymmetrical jacket.

      I agree. Not the type of clothes I would wear. Odd placement of gathers. Also, the off-set button on the jacket and shirt could turn out to look like you didn’t know what you were doing when you were sewing the item.

      My thoughts exactly. I’m shocked that the sleeveless blouse is such a hit!

    Gosh the suit jacket is horrible, I remember wearing sth similar in style and color in the early nintees and unless you are Sienna Miller it’s hard to pull that one off. The sleeve lees blouse in contrast is lovely and has some of the magic from the Pattern Magic books, also the wide sleeve dress is very intressting.
