Oversized Peter Pan collars, safety pins, and layered silhouettes are exciting and moody in this collection. Find your new favorite piece for concerts and dive bars. These designs are from the February 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine.

An exaggerated Peter Pan collar gives a peekaboo effect to the Keyhole Blouse with Ruffled Collar. This adorable blouse is a statement piece that’s sure to get you lots of compliments however you style it.

Grommets and washed silk combine for a cool top with interesting texture play. The V neck and ruched sides are just feminine enough with the tough embellished neckline.

This bad girl Safety Pin Mini Skirt has a short hemline, grommet embellishment, zippered pockets, and safety pin trim for a fun rocker look. Dare to bare or slip it on over tights and combat boots.

Three different washes give the Denim Mini Skirt a gradient effect. It’s a versatile piece with all the pocket detailing you’d find on a pair of jeans that you can punk out with ripped fishnets or cowgirl up with boots and a button up shirt.

A cool keyhole is set off by an interesting knotted neckline in the Knotted Long Sleeve Top. Jersey skims the body so you can tuck this top into trousers like the Fold Over Pants. These silky soft pants have a little New Wave vibe with a high waist and pleating around the hips.

Don’t be scared off by bold vertical Striped Skinny Trousers… black and white is easy to match, and so slimming! These pants turn any outfit into a statement and will definitely get you noticed.

Pair a delicate cap sleeved silhouette with tough leather to get this cool top. You can wear it on its own, or zip it up over a slim turtleneck or tee to layer on some rock style.

This Keyhole Dress with Ruffled Collar is such a unique piece. Ruffles decorate the cuffs and hemline, and an exaggerated Peter Pan collar gives a peekaboo effect to the keyhole neckline. The length is versatile enough to wear to the office or a dinner party.

This Ruched Dress has a beautiful layered look like 90s rock icons. A simple short sleeved shift is topped with a sheer ruched overdress. It looks pretty and moody in black, and can be dolled up in a sheer floral print.

This collection is a nice break from all the spring florals about to hit stores. Moody shades of grey and black can still be pretty, especially with a little sheer fabric or an ultra-feminine collar.

Happy sewing!

    Some of these are really great. Not sure I’d do the pants in black and white stripe though – veers a little too much to clowny costume for me. But their cut is amazing.

    Easy to make designs, I would use wow prints or different textures in the same color, just avoid the ’’safe’’ basic. Thank you, Burda!

    LOVE about half this range. Would work for my size 44 hourglass. It’s all about the fabric choice, and this new range look is very TODAY. I love the grommet top, I apply this to my coats and tops where it suits the fabric. Let’s go girls, and please post all your efforts, I love to see them as do thousands of others.

    Edgy collection with interesting details, but the basic patterns could easily be adapted to a less punk style. Good job, Burda, though model needn’t look so glum.

    I love the denim skirt. It’s something I can get away with at my age.

    Love the leather shirt. I have been looking for something like this for a while! Gonna need to modify this patern to make it a bit larger since I fall just above the size range. Has anyone added an inch ot two to a pattern before?

      Do u mean the denim skirt with the safety pins? Easy to add to the size in this basic method. A skirt pattern just needs your waist and hips measurement. Trace off the largest size pattern. Don’t cut yet. if you are average height you shouldn’t need to alter the vertical distance between the waistline and the hip line. Measure the waist on the pattern in total, then take this measurement away from your own waist measurement. The difference should be added to the pattern, balanced over the front and back. But remember if you have a bit of a tummy, may need a little more added to the front piece than the back piece. Hips – additional inches can be halved for front piece and back piece to make it easy. There are many ways to alter a pattern online these days. Give it a go and let us know how u go.

      Regan- I was referring to the leather shirt, which I think will be tricky. It may be a big project!
      Thanks for the tips on the skirt though- I have shrunk skirt patterns (for my tween daughter) but never added to them. Muslin for sure!!

    This is the most interesting and exciting collection I have seen in a very long time. I am very inspired by the knotted blouse, that wonderful keyhole dress with the ruffles in the hemline, the pants – actually I like just about everything in this collection. Thanks Burda!

    I LOVE the ruffled collar. I’m always looking for different collar variations. It seems the indie pattern companies excel at that, but I’d love to see some in Burdastyle Magazine.

    The knotted blouse is perfect.

    The fold over pants are pretty awesome. They would be very wearable in a soft fabric with excellent drape. I love that you include unusual patterns like this, along with basics like the skinny trousers. It makes buying the magazine worth it.
