This week we’re excited to reveal 6 gorgeous patterns all made from rich and romantic reds. Looking for a blazer or a duffel coat, or the perfect holiday ensemble? Check these out and get sewing!

Moving right from the left-hand corner:

1. High-waist V-neck dress. Super flattering and flirty. Make it in a bright wool crêpe or go for a metallic brocade for the ultimate holiday look.
2. Kimono top. This top is fancy and practical. try it in a soft wool or velvet and add a sequin trim for some extra sparkle.
3. Long sleeved dress. Perfect for holiday parties and colder days, this long sleeved dress would look great in a red burn-out velvet or silk crepe.
4. Blazer with cape-like back. Make a surprise statement as you walk away in this unique blazer-capelet. Make it in a richly hued wool velour or velvet and have fun with the buttons.
5. Skirt with box pleats. A variation from the long hippie skirt from the ‘grunge’ patterns, when you chop off the length, you get a super cute mini. Cut it from a bright red wool crêpe or felt for added structural integrity.
6. Duffle coat. Bundle up in style— make it in a nice brushed wool in a bright solid color or go bold with a Navajo or Pendleton wool.

    Where in the world does one find the leather attachments for toggles. Must I make them myself?

    I am making the short version of the first v-neck dress. But it took me some time to decipher instructions. Very interesting construction though!

    I totally agree, the October, November and December issues have been so great. I loved all the red dresses but I would have liked to have seen them all lined since it’s winter and they were made of wool. I’ll have to figure out the lining by myself :)

      August was very cute too! I personally find much more original styles, not the frumpy clothes frin a department store. I have just subscribed to Burda – saves time running to the garment district in order to get the most recent issue.

    Wow BurdaStyle! I think I might actually have to think about re-subscribing, the last few issues have been great!
