This collection from the May 2017 issue of BurdaStyle magazine features purely chic patterns including a linen and rope tank top, a wrap style romper and a cool skirt.

The hip yoke adds an extra figure-shaping element to the cropped trousers that fall casually to a relaxed hem width. Details make the difference – here with large pockets and big buttons meant to get noticed.

It has the look of being stylishly swept on the hips, though it is cleverly designed for the perfect fit. The knee-length skirt gets its relaxed look from the laid-in inverted pleats and the long tying bands.

Casual and so cool is this hoodie inset panel includes an integrated hood and is cut with lengthwise stripes for a visual focal point. The pulled through cording gets finished with leather on the ends.

Serenity in fashion form! The back length of this romper is proportional for tall women. The surplice neckline is kept in check with an additional bustier. Style tip: Add a bit of pep to the look by choosing different fabrics – either colors or patterns – for the bodice and the shorts.

Though the look is sophisticated and appears complicated, it is possible to finish in a weekend – even for sewists wanting to grow their skills. The dress is sewn in an extremely soft jersey that pulls through a round casing. The effect draws interest as well as defining beautiful shape at the waistline.

Whether brunch, shopping or going to a party is on your list, the sexy bandeau top works for each occasion. The pleats add an additional depth to the dark red bark crêpe. The design features corset bands and elastic to avoid any slipping, as well as to provide some support.

Pretty clever! The hip-length tank adjusts with the cord straps that weave through eyelets in front and back, which are then knotted. Add an element of surprise by choosing a cording in a contrast color, or use satin ribbon for a romantic touch. Paired with the trousers, it has a relaxed jumpsuit style.

Lengthwise panels and tying bands – to be knotted in front or back – make this blouse a layering fashion highlight.

One part maritime and one part high fashion. The faux wrap skirt with the relaxed slant pockets in front also includes patch pockets in the back. We pulled a cording through the belt loops for the finishing touch.

A lot of fashion potential that is also a perfect last-minute piece to sew. The A-line top has cording for straps so it can be adjusted and worn as you wish. If the cut is too short for your liking, simply lengthen the hem – or even make it long enough to a be a mini dress…

The ankle-length dress with the draped back cuts a great figure even in the height of summer. The sleeve and neckline are finished with fabric strips. Style tip: This style is absolutely chic in a sequin fabric for those who love to make a grand entrance for evenings out.

The dropped back hem and the bias cut of the skirt panel are details that support the drape of this breezy and subdued cropped sleeve dress. This version is sewn with the on-trend men’s classic stripe shirting fabric.
