Pour some sweet tea and lounge on the front porch in these country style designs. Relaxed tanks, trendy overalls, and prairie inspired dresses are right at home on the frontier. These patterns are from the June 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine.

_121

A little flirty and a little bohemian, the Pintuck Mini Dress has lots of feminine details. Pintucks have a Victorian look and the flounced hem looks so sweet with cowboy boots or chunky wedge sandals. The prairie style is accentuated with scalloped edges at the skirt.

_129

Flirt the day away in this Tiered Mini Skirt. It’s shirred all around the hip for an easy fit, and plenty of ruffles put a girly spring in your step.

_106 and 125C

Overalls go modern with a slim bodice, bootcut legs, and twill instead of denim. This trendy piece can be worn with a simple tank for a tomboy look, or slip on the Sequin Racer Back Tank for a pop of sparkle.

_109B

Take this simple dress to the next level with shimmering burnout satin for the bodice and super casual khaki for the skirt. It’s a fun contrast for summer that you can dress up or down. The tank style and flared skirt are modest and easy to wear.

_111

This utility Cargo Vest is made luxurious with real or faux suede. Throw it over a white tank or tee for a hike, or use it to add some toughness to your favorite floral sundress. The extra pockets are so handy!

_112B

Feel like a prairie princess in this Button Down Empire Waist Dress with kimono sleeves and a wide gored skirt. It’s even more romantic in a print with floral or animal motifs and vintage buttons for the front. A sash ties at the back to show off your waist.

_116B and 125

Totally basic and totally essential. This is the round neck tank top that goes with anything for the summer. Throw it on with cutoff shorts, layer it under a denim jacket, or tuck it into a printed skirt. Transform this relaxed outfit with Shorts sequin fabric. These running shorts have a multicolored rib knit waistband and a lot of sparkle.

_130

Embroidered tulle and lace don’t need a fancy design. This Tunic with Sash is open at the sides and fully lined under transparent lace. An attached sash cinches the waist. It looks dreamy with denim or even plain black leggings.

_120

Tunic or mini dress? You can wear this darling Pintuck Tunic Dress either way, either as a hippie mini or with leggings or tights as a top. The front is beautifully detailed with pintucks and the back is cut slightly longer for coverage.

_128

Going strapless is easy in this linen jersey jumpsuit. A smocked back and ties across the chest keep it from slipping down without sacrificing style. Banded cuffs show off your shoes, and side pockets are an extra nice detail.

_131

A quick and easy sew makes a dramatic and comfortable tank or beach cover up. The Side Seam Tank has adjustable straps using O rings, and stretch jersey in a fun print is lightweight for summer. Whip it up in a snap for a weekend in the sun.

    Cute for summer. Except the bootcut overalls, which are a crime.

    I’m happy to see the shorts and basic tank patterns. I won’t be doing them in sequins, but I hope that Burda offers more casual patterns like this. I don’t think I could pull off the strapless jumpsuit, but it’s a nice fresh look for someone who can.

    I love this collection. Very on trend – especially the overalls. I could not see myself wearing overalls until I saw this pattern – so cute. The magazine has a tutorial for making them too. I think I will try them.

    this is so dissapointing, such an awfull collection, Green trousers are so fattering, even the model looks like she is pregnant, what is up with Burda designers??? I was so looking forward to receiving a new magazine and now I don’t see anything worth sewing. NOTHING NEW, NOTHING NICE, NOTHING TO SEW

    I personally love the sequins on the farm, I thin it was hilarious.

    Have to admit, I am pretty underwhelmed by this weeks pattern offerings – like my fellow Burda members, I find the collection, both in fabric choices and styles, confusing and in some cases poorly done – what is up with those awful and unflattering green overalls? The ill fitting cocktail dress with blue leopard lame and khaki?? Sequined running shorts with red white and blue sports piping? The last two patterns appeal to me, but the jersey jumpsuit and tank don’t belong in this particular collection. The mini pin tuck dress, and the shirt dress could be a keepers as well – but again, they don’t belong in the same collection as the rest of it… it’s not the backdrop that makes a collection cohesive my friends.

    The grandfather nightshirt/dress is a wonderful pattern but generally speaking, not the best of Burda’s collections, imho. Wearing sequins around the farm is just bonkers and Burda has been trying to do sequins for daywear now for months and it just doesn’t take, at least not in my part of Europe. And that pair of dungarees is cut in such a way as to guarantee the wearer looks as fat as possible. The shift dress doesn’t belong on any prairie I’ve ever visited, and I don’t know many prairies featuring lakes, for that matter.

    The whole collection is a little skewed, but as I said, the grandfather shirt is a keeper. http://chanelno6.blogspot.ch/

    Not all these designs are my style, but I’m absolutely delighted with many of them.

    Perhaps at times the fabric choice is not the best. I personally cannot imagine wheeling my wheelbarrow in flitter shorts. Or going fishing in glitter top or watching farm animals in my cocktail dress.

    One of these things is not like the others. Not my favourite.
