Bring back the swinging sixties with a checked sheath dress, white leather biker jacket, and graphic jersey tunic. These patterns are from the January 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine.

The Cross Panel Dress is a real statement piece. A strong print and graphic cross design pop in black and white for a fun new take on mod dressing.

White leather gives a shrunken biker jacket a whole new look. This stunning piece has asymmetrical zips, quilted shoulders, zippered cuffs, and a pocket, and will turn jeans and a tee into a rebel chic outfit.

A unique tucked effect at the front of this skirt give it a pretty wrap silhouette. The high waist is so slimming with a little volume at the hip. Patterned silk pops against opaque tights and a sweater.

Flatter your figure with these Leather Trousers fit for a rock star. They’re cut with a waistband, moderate rise, and zip fly but no back pockets for a neat fit

This boxy Knit V Neck Tunic would make Edie Sedgwick proud. Striped faux fur is cute and expected with a pair of black leggings and some go-go boots.

Highlight the waist gathers of this Asymmetrical Jersey Top with a striped fabric. You can never have too many long sleeved tees, so why not have some fun with an asymmetrical hem?

The Mod Sheath Dress is perfect for showing off bold prints, like a black and white check. Three quarter sleeves and a crew neck are so versatile. This dress even has pockets so you can skip the purse when you go out on the town!

Shrink a traditional blazer, add darts and a graphic striped fabric, and you have a fun and feminine piece. This jacket pops against tailored shorts or other sixties bottoms.

These graphic pieces would be a fun change to the usual sparkle and sequins for New Year’s Eve. Pour some old fashioned cocktails, give yourself a fun beehive and cat-eye, and throw a sixties themed bash.

Happy sewing!

    Please remove the SPAM on this post. I’d much rather read the comments on style, construction and projects then a bunch of advertisements taking up needless room.

    Love the clothes, hate the “coy” poses of that model. Really love the model you’ve had for a long time, the one with the short black hair, she’s so stylish.
