This week we share these stylized western patterns with you from burda style magazine. Inspired by western clothing, these patterns are casual and perfect for everyday wear. From delicate lace to denim and leather, you can choose to make yourself a cool summer dress or a hip leather vest with fringe.

This One Button Blazer is a classic style with a western twist and paired with these Lace Leggings it makes a look that is super cool for summer.

The Leather Waistcoat with fringe is fun to wear and very easy to make. Great for a beginner’s project.

We love this Halter Maxi-Dress and the way it moves in the wind on a breezy summer day.

Check out this Leather Vest with an open back feature with crossing straps. Here it’s styled with a great pair of 70’s Pants with a wide leg silhouette.

The sweet Layered Lace Dress is perfect for summertime.

This classic Button-down Top is an everyday cool top. It is a great project for beginners with step-by-step sewing instructions with diagrams. Also try making the Twisted Skirt which is a free pattern that you draft yourself following our instructions!

Check out this dainty Long Sleeve Tiered Dress. It is a perfect dress to make with lovely scalloped edge fabric.

Try making this Crossover Blazer with it’s unique button-up closure.

The Gathered Tunic Top features a drawstring gathered shoulder and pretty front appliqué. We think it would be great paired with summer leggings or shorts.

Have fun sewing these western style patterns, and try pairing with an old pair of cowboy boots!

Yeee Haw

      Unless you plan on going and working on a ranch, I totally agree with you!

      However, leather is great if you plan on doing some hard work in your fashionable, Southwestern clothing. I wouldn’t recommend wearing one of the nice dresses in that situation, but the leather provides good protection. :^D

    Hello, I think the leather is very chic for a “South-western” summer. I don’t think Texas is considered south-west but we Southern California and Arizona peeps would def use it in our dry summer heat.

    This is the fist fashion spread in a LONG time that I’ve actually liked! These pieces look like they could easily, through fabric choice and styling, convert to a “city” look… well done, for once!

    Where do people get the idea that leather is great in summer? I live in Texas and that is the last thing I would wear in 100 degree heat.

      Ditto (about the leather)! No blazer either. This is one of Burdastyle’s Route 66 fantasies…

      True that! Maybe they’re thinking of “city-ranch-chique”? We’ll give ‘em the benefit of the doubt and assume they’ve not stepped out in the middle of a Texas (or general Southwest) Summer. lol

      The light cotton would to well, though. :^)

      Good to know I am not the only one who would not wear leather in summer. But I do love the top and maxi dress. If there was a way to alter the top so it does not have a plunging neckline that would be great. Does not work for a mother of 4 who nursed all of them and is in her 40’s. :(

    The wide 70´s pants are great! Everything doesn´t have to be “nude”….
