This week’s new patterns from burda style magazine are inspired by the American 50s. Form fitting garments and classic styles in gorgeous pastel colors with a modern take. Make yourself a high-waisted pencil skirt with starburst pleats, a classic seersucker blouse, or a pair of leather shorts.

Seersucker Blouse and Starburst Skirt

The Shirt Dress

Embroidered Blouse and Pleated Circle Skirt

The Drawstring Top is easy to sew and a perfect beginners project. Match it with our fun and cool Leather Shorts.

We are absolutely in love with the gorgeous retro look of the Mock Two-Piece Dress

Happy sewing!

    Fabric store here I come! There is not a single piece in this collection that I don’t want to make. The only problem will be deciding which garment to start first.

    I like the high waisted pencil skirt and the colour is beautiful. I am going to try and make a few:)

    Just a note all the items are really nice and have a fresh summery feel to them.:)

    I think the mock 2 piece dress would be really cute with buttons up the back of the shirt!
