This new pattern collection from burda style magazine’s April 2013 issue will have you looking fashionably chic with minimal effort. These styles in nude tones and soft materials are presented in simple yet stylish cuts.

Here is the Tuxedo Vest which will be your best blazer replacement for the warmer months. It features long ascending pointed lapels and collar that really give it that tuxedo look.

This casual day Dress in silk-linen has drop shoulders and a ruched drawstring waist. In addition, a panel placket and bellows pockets.

This lovely Balloon Top has pleats placed at one shoulder that create that great draped effect.

This is a great spring time Dress for layering and sewing in a variety of fabrics. It is a sleeveless design with round neckline and has a sightly fitted shape.

This simple yet elegant Blouse is loose fitting with high collar and big chest pockets.

This springtime Blazer is made with lightweight fabric and makes a perfect layering piece. It features princess seams, shawl collar and single welt pockets. We love it worn with these matching Pleated Pants.

Here is a great little kimono-sleeve Blouse with pleats at the neckline.

This simple loose fit Dress has a deep slit neckline with cross stitching. The three-quarter length sleeves are rolled and held in place by a tab.

Happy Sewing!

    The blouse with pleats is pretty, everything else seems a bit too lumpy….

    wow, this is a beautiful collection. I’ve been super into clean futuristic shapes lately. I LOVE the shawl collar jacket paired with the pleated pants. The day dress placket bugs me, but I’d probably just add snaps to keep it from going everywhere.
