Check out our new patterns from Burda Style Magazine and get inspired by the soft colors and minimalistic design!

Try your hand at some pattern magic with our Dress With Knot and check out the step by step image instructions to help you with the process!

The Two Tone Coat is just a lovely piece for early spring days or chilly summer evenings. Make it in linen for summer or wool for winter. It is a fairly easy garment to make without time consuming and tedious pocket or collar details.

We love this look! The 3/4 Pants have a sort of 70’s look to them with a resemblance to the typical Gaucho pant of the time. Great summer pants for more casual or dressy occasions. The whole style with the dress shirt and this great looking vest feels like an updated version of Annie Hall!

The Blouse has a standing collar and a gathered neckline. This is a great blouse that can be made in many different fabrics; linen, cotton, silk or wool for colder seasons.

Try more pattern magic with the Twisted Front Skirt.

Asymmetric Jacket

The Wrap Top can be made with short or long sleeves.

Happy sewing!

    Love most of these. Not too sure about the 3/4 pants. It could be the colors of the outfit, it seems a little 1980’s school boy. But love the tops and dresses—very cute!

      That’s my opinion too, but like you said “could be the colors”. I’m thinking part of it’s the pairing of that particular shirt and vest with the pants. X^p I’m sure it’d look great with another shirt or draped cover. :^D

    Hi, Love the navy blue vest w pocket details and 3/4-length pants. I’d like to recreate the whole outfit; what’s the pattern number for the blouse?

      Hi,

      We are glad you like the look.
      It is my favorite as well!

      Unfortunately, the shirt is one that was bought for the photo shoot and we do not have the pattern for it. If you are ok with some pattern alterations, you could use this shirt pattern. It is for stretch jersey but would be fine to make in a cotton weave if you add cuffs to the sleeves and perhaps you may need to go up one size or make some adjustments to the width of the shirt.

      Best, Emmy
