Ice cream colors are just right for spring, especially in fitted dresses and kimono-esque tops. Coordinate pieces for your next brunch date or bridal shower. These designs are from the March 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine.

Take a page from the 1940s with this flirty Two Tone Dress that looks like a top and skirt. Contrasting colors are beautiful for spring, but it would look so sophisticated in a solid color for a fall cocktail party.

A flowing tunic is tied up with a festive sash and gets a girlie touch from fluttery ruffled sleeves. Make the Blouse with Ruffled Sleeves in brightly colored silk for a gypsy feel.

Get a beautiful bombshell silhouette in the Satin Belted Dress. It has the alluring neckline of a bustier with a little extra coverage and 3/4 sleeves.

This loose fitting Kimono Top has a deep front slit and wide, curling sleeves with a beautiful swirl around the shoulders. Nip in the waist with a coordinating belt.

Highlight your best assets in the Wrap Neck Dress. It’s soft and romantic with gathered shoulders and a belted waist.

This Jacket is taken to the next level with bright pink lace and contrasting leather piping. It turns any pair of pants and a tee into a charming spring look with flair.

A Flared Skirt with some cool seamed details can give a polished look to any top. This skirt looks perfect in a fabric with some structure and a little sheen.

Luxe fabrics lie doupioni silk are beautiful in sherbet colors. Brighten up your wardrobe with these pieces, and get a little spring glam.

Happy sewing!

    I like the collection, but not one of these models is what I would consider plus sized. No big hips, bellies, arms, thighs. Just a big busted woman who is nowhere near what I would consider plus sized. Take a look around at the people in America where most of us are obese. Can you imagine any of them wearing anything in this collection? I sure can’t and I’m among the obese which is why I sew so that I can have clothes that fit me.

      You,re right Holly. She’s big compared to the other models, but you are right, she’s probably about a 12-14. She’s also young and firm! That’s why these clothes look perfect on her. :)
      We just need to dress our bodies with flattering clothes- not try and squash ourselves into fashion for fashion’s sake. It is harder, for sure, but there are lots of bigger women out there who dress impeccably! I loved when they did bigger women on “What Not to Wear”- those women always came away looking so good!

    Thank you so much Burda for finally designing cute fashion that isn’t shapeless and tent-like, and for not hiding the styles behind props or stupid postures.
