Freshen up your wardrobe with a dose of bright white in this 13 piece collection. You’ll be ready to host a spring get together in detailed dresses and a men’s summer suit. This collection is from the April 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine.

The Cumberbund Skirt’s high waist with belt loops nips in your waist for a slim, crisp look. The matching belt and slash pockets are fun details.

An oversized funnel neck is slouchy but a little seductive in a slinky knit dress. Use a textured stretch fabric like cloqué for extra interest.

Give the trendy high waisted look a break with these low slung pants. An ankle dusting length shows off new shoes and is practical for summer.

This slinky Knit V Neck Pullover is luxurious but simple, perfect with a chic pair of linen pants and leather sandals. The Skinny Pants with Hip Yoke will make you the best dressed woman in the room.

Practice your topstitching and fitting skills with the futuristic Wings Dress. The wide boatneck and side panels are unconventional for a modern look you wont find anywhere else.

Mix up your evening wear routine with a cutting edge silk Evening Jumpsuit. It’s distinctive, but has the subtlety of a pantsuit in crisp white or another neutral like navy.

Keep looking dapper through the summer heat with a pair of Linen Pants. Make a summer suit with the Men’s Linen Jacket.

X marks the spot for style in this sculptural wonder of a dress. Eye catching pleats have a wrap dress effect that’s contemporary and striking.

A comfy jersey top is even more luxurious with an oversized funnel neck. It’s a cozier take on the relaxed boatneck.

The perfect Summer Blazer for all those summer yacht parties and spring weddings. It’s a classic in linen with pockets and buttoned cuffs. Make a summer suit with the Men’s Linen Pants.

Frame those curves with a Criss Cross V Neck Dress. This 3/4 sleeve dress shows off your shape, especially in pure white.

This boxy Wrapped Blouse is so elegant with the wrapped silhouette and wide boatneck. Wear it with low rise bottoms to show off the slightly asymmetrical hem.

This collection is a nice palate cleanser from all the bright and boho summer clothes about to hit stores. Make your spring a little more chic with these minimalist designs.

Happy sewing!

    The great thing about sewing is making things like this. The interesting details are incredibly beautiful.

    Please can we have a photo of the knit dress and the jersey top worn without the models arms up? Really need to see how that unusual style sits as I don’t walk around with my arms up….

    I love this collection – it’s very classy. I do wonder about how the sleeves on the cowl dress and blouse would feel being so lop-sided. I have trouble tolerating two different socks so I’m not hopeful that I’d enjoy two different types of shoulder seams.

    Lovely collection! I’m back to purchasing the original version of Burda Style magazine. I subscribed to the hard copy of the U.S. version. The first one was disappointing to say the least, but o.k. I figured they would find their sea legs, as it were, and get better. Wrong! In addition to advertising for weeks that the digital version was available and the hard copy in stores but it took weeks for those of us who paid a year in advance to get ours, when it finally, finally arrived…..wow what an extraordinary disappointment, horrible, just horrible. I’d like to cancel my subscription and put the money toward the European version instead, ahhhh but don’t try emailing, it bounces.

      Which one? The European version I hope, it’s unlikely they are in Burda U.S.
