This plus size pattern collection is showcased in the June 2013 issue of burda style magazine. These styles will make you shine in front of the camera, and ensure you are ready for your close up! This collection experiments with color and has a mix of casual and dressy styles that are transitional. Check them all out!

This Slit Sleeve Blouse has so much detail to it. Like the great V neckline with inset and the fluttery sleeve with layers of fabric.

Dress or shirt? That is the luxury of this Dress. It has the classic styling of a shirt but made into a lovely dress. Perfect to wear for those summer day trips.

This Pleated Skirt had so much fun volume! It is pleated at the front and it really has a great wrap effect.

What a stunner! This red T-Dress has a loose-fitting silhouette, so It is comfy to wear and it will allow the fabric to blow in the breeze. The sleeves are flouncy and integrated into the bodice.

This little Dress has a plunging deep V-neckline with contrast band at the neckline and waist. Pair with a sunhat and sandals for a great beach look or throw on a pair of heels and wear this fun dress out on the town

This Yoked Tunic is great for this time of year! It has a lovely U-shaped yoke seam with center front slit and ties at the sleeve. We love it worn with these slim Seamed Pants.

This silk Blouse is elegant and flowing with movement. It has an empire seam under the bust with darts and a center front slit with loop and button.

Happy Sewing!

    Dear BurdaStyle, You suck. These are not hideous clothes but nothing I want. That sucks. You actually offer cuter patterns . Offer the cuter stuff in larger sizes. It’s a friggin PDF. How difficult to make changes to your PDFs . It’s as if you trying to insult. That sucks. Overall, you suck!

    Wow! what a let down! I saw the title and was hoping to find some awesome sewing patterns for myself, but all I found was a dud! Want to call your plus sized line “Bombshell” try making some things that actually are attractive for us, like these: http://www.pinupgirlclothing.com/vintage-style-inspired-clothing/plus-size-dresses.html?dir=asc&limit=all&order=name I bet I can find almost every one of these styles in sewing patterns for thin women, and as much as I hear that it can’t be done, or won’t look good on bigger women, this company proves that idea completely wrong!

    Absolutly unflattering styles…. well unless these women are pregnant then PERFECT! Especially horrible is the pleated skirt it is a terrible mess! I am just guessing that you have a bunch of size 2 women in your corp office approving these ideas???? It is time to break out the big guns and get creative… break up styles appropriate for different body types and have people who actually dress for their curves help you pick some appropriate patterns. I would love to purchase some patterns as i do not have the time or energy to create my own anymore… yet searching for something for an hourglass figure in your patterns makes me second guess that thought!

      I recently made the Off the Shoulder Dress 07/2011 #135 in a stretch satin and I would say it is very flattering and perfect for an hourglass. Unfortunately this is not always the case for Burda Plus, and most of these collections they put together can be very frustrating to see.

    I love the tan skirt with the pale pink top and have the skirt in my cart. Anyone know what pattern the blouse is? I went through all the tops on the site and couldn’t find it. Thanks.

    Nice ideas but most of these styles miss the mark – these cuts are not flattering on a fuller figure – I’m +size on top but not on the bottom (BIG bust and broad shoulders) – this is indicative of what’s going on all over the country. Nothing is particularly flattering and is mainly square (and there therefore hangs straight down from my bust, appearing to add about 6 inches to my hips and more to my waist – I would look like a Valkyrie in these dresses). Not everyone has the skill to take a pattern apart to fix it – neither the +size or the standard range of patterns really have much to offer to someone with a different body shape. I’m hearing the same complaints from nearly everyone I know – why is no one doing anything about it???

    Love that red, satin shirt-dress. That really caught my attention. I think it is a style any fem would want. I am… going to check out that pattern page. The other stuff were a bit “meh” for me.

    Burda designers please look at the Navarbi web site. They have such beautiful dresses and most of them look pretty easy to make. Havent found any patterns for plus sizes in any pattern books that are worth the time and effort to make, very disappointed my sewing machine remains in its case.

    I meant to add – that model is so beautiful. Great to see such beautiful models being used in the plus size range too.
