We’re taking inspiration from the city highways with yellow, grey, and curving lines. The Stop Traffic collection has some serious curves! These patterns are from the February 2012 issue of Burda Style magazine. All instructions to previously published patterns have been updated.
Stretch jersey in contrasting colors makes a striking, curve hugging Diagonal Lines Dress. This piece is sculptural and sexy with a short mandarin collar and a sexy exposed zipper up the back.
This dress is folded over like trenchcoat for a femme fatale effect. It’s complete with pockets and carefully placed pleats to show off your figure.
Square yoke panels give this relaxed top a cool shape. Pair it with skinny bottoms like a pencil skirt or slacks.
Up the sex appeal of a high waisted pencil skirt with a full length exposed zipper. It toughens up the silhouette so you can pair it with more casual tops and tees.
Linen makes a crisp blazer a little more relaxed. This design has cool dropped lapels for a different look.
Balance a voluminous top with skinny High Waisted Slacks. These have a slim high waist to flatter your figure. Tuck in your blouse or wear a crop top for that retro feel.
Kimono sleeves and overlapping fronts give this jacket a sculptural look. It looks clean and modern with pencil skirts and fitted dresses.
Squared off shoulder panels give this Tunic Dress crisp structure. Pair the loose shape with chunky sky high heels and a dramatic smoky eye to really get noticed.
Stop traffic in this curve hugging jersey skirt with a daring exposed zipper up the back. You’ll definitely get some attention in this hot little number.
This collection is all about shape and line. Exposed zips and slanting seams show off your sewing skills and look sharp on city streets.
