We’re bringing you feminine twists on the classics for spring. Don’t miss a fitted linen suit with eye catching embellishment, a retro style sheath dress, romantic dress, and more! These designs are from the May 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine.

You’ll breeze through your day in this body skimming knee length Keyhole Dress with an elastic waist and sash detail. The flounce at the neckline, cap sleeves, and a little keyhole neck are sweet and feminine details.

_136A and 135

This professional looking Fitted Blazer is seamed at the waist for a flattering hourglass fit. Sew your own embellishment for an extra feminine touch. You can make a spring suit with matching pants, complete with a racing stripe up each leg for a lengthening effect.

A flouncy ruffle outlines a flirty keyhole neck in this dreamy top. Even better, the hip length and hidden pockets make it practical for every day.

_139 and 140A

This Midi Dress is pure romance in a delicate floral print with a full skirt and ruffled hem. It’s beautiful for parties and dates with some T strap shoes and the matching sash. Make it in a sheer fabric as pictured and wear over the Fitted Under Dress.

_136B

These Ankle Flare Pants are slim through the thigh and knee but flare out at the ankle to wear with all your chunky heels. It’s a flattering silhouette for work, especially with looser tops.

_140B

A retro classic with a boatneck at the front and V at the back. The Sleeveless Shift Dress hugs your figure with princess seams, a fitted waist, and a walking slit at the back. It looks modern in a print with some stretch.

_141

Glam beadwork and a bold leopard print make a statement in this crew neck, 3/4 sleeve Embellished Top. It’s a fun party piece with black cigarette pants or a skirt.

This collection is made with flattering cuts in mind. Add a little embellishment, a cool racing stripe or some leopard print, and you’re ready to host a spring brunch or hit the boardroom in style.

Happy sewing!

    This is a good plus size collection. I am happy to see some patterns that cater to an hourglass or pear figure.
