You’ll call everyone to attention in these military inspired patterns. Fierce designs like a drawstring jacket, metallic shirt, body con dress, and bustier look amazing with stacked heels or boots. This collection is from the October 2013 issue of Burda Style magazine.

This dress has so many great details to show off your shape, like a deep V neck and criss cross pleats at the hip. You’ll want to make a gorgeous exit to show off the full length exposed zipper at the back.

This Drawstring Coat is ready for adventures. Plenty of pockets, an elastic back, and drawstring waist all give utilitarian style and function.

Henley shirts are a casual wardrobe essential, so what better than lengthening this great shape into a shirt dress This design has extra roomy sleeves for comfort and movement.

What a fun alternative to a winter coat! This roomy Zippered Cape zips all the way up so you can change your look. The drawstring neckline and pockets are great military details you’ll love on a chilly day.

A menswear inspired button up shirt is anything but basic in slinky metallic fabric. Switch up this wardrobe basic in something shiny for a fun party look! This shirt looks amazing with a simple pair of skinny black pants and heels.

Trade your cardigan for this Faux Fur Stole, and give your party dress a whole new look. It’s simpler than you think to make and looks so glamorous for an evening out.

Mix super feminine and military styles in this Khaki Bustier with a drawstring at the hem.

Get full on army style in this detailed jacket. Take on your day with tough camo and lots of pockets of every size. Looks fierce with a pencil skirt!

Olive and khaki are the perfect colors for this collection. Rock these designs with some black tights and a chunky heels for a cool evening look.

Happy sewing!

    LOVE the styling on this collection, the patterns and the fabric choices are great. It’s not really my style but it makes me wish it wore.

    No a fan of any of these. Too boxy and blah.

    I like the dress patterns and the faux fur stole alot. I also like the bustier but not the hem which is easy enough to change

    Yes to the v-neck dress and possibly army style jacket (in a non camouflage nylon).

    Love, love, love these, especially the first dress and the last coat! The military look is always a blessing if you have broad shoulders like me. :)
