Summer winds and windswept deserts inspired this collection that’s full of delicate dresses, tough tomboy separates, and a feminine leather jacket. These patterns are from the July 2010 issue of Burda Style magazine. All instructions to previously published patterns have been updated.

_120

This Chiffon Bustier Dress with a low scooped bodice has an old fashioned look thanks to the corset-like top. It highlights your bust and arms with gathered tank sleeves and a low neckline.

_104

White skinny jeans are a summer essential. Once you make a pair you’ll wonder why you waited so long! This design has zippers at the side seam for a fun accent.

_113

This Dress with Front Scarf has a Grecian look but it’s so much more sophisticated than a toga. The tank straps are caught in front and hang past the hem for a drapey effect.

_102 and 109 b

Wrap Harem Pants with a drop crotch and leg band are just the thing in hot summer weather. Wear them with a fitted tank and the shrunken Waistcoat with a deep v neckline.

_111C

Show just the right amount of skin with a surprising center keyhole in this figure hugging Gathered Halter Dress in stretch jersey. The halter neckline shows off your neck and shoulders and is perfect for summer.

_116A

White chiffon is demure but this Draped Short Skirt is all sex appeal. It gives you curves with a tight fit and waist to hem ruching.

_117

Look like a Grecian goddess in this one shoulder dress with a beautifully draped scarf instead of a sleeve. The side is ruched to hug your figure.

_119

This Leather Jacket is all girl with a scooped neckline and rounded lapels. The asymmetrical zip hugs your waist and creates a flattering silhouette with the help of a godet at the back.

This collection takes inspiration from draped Grecian dresses and the tough outfits worn on safari. Both looks suit summer weather. You can even mix and match a floaty dress with a gladiator sandal or wear the skinny jeans with a delicate top.

Happy sewing!
