Pop art shades of pink, purple, and orange get understated cutouts and gathers for one easy to wear collection. These designs are from the October 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine.


A fit and flare dress with flattering style lines goes with anything! Make the Split Neck Dress mod with go go boots, or wear it with your favorite pumps for work. We like the hidden pockets and subtle split neckline.


A casual Blouson Jacket is a must have for fall. This one has a slouchy shawl collar and contrasting cuffs. It’s even more feminine and fun in an animal print like leopard.


Accessorize your outfit in this jacket with an attached scarf. The fluttery chiffon collar has a retro look. This piece would be lovely with a contrasting or patterned scarf.


Tie up style in the Bow Neck Top with a cute tied neckline. It’s slouchy for the weekend but looks sweet with a banded hem and gathered neck. Make it in a light jersey.


Wear this Pleated Tunic Dress as a mini dress or as a tunic with leggings. The drop waist is accentuated by a short pleated skirt. Satin drapes and gives a pretty finish to the gathered neckline and raglan sleeves.

You’ll love this fantasy alternative to a pencil skirt. The Mermaid Skirt’s high waist and wide waistband flatters hourglass figures, and the undulating hem with a flouncy ruffle is so fun and flirty. Wear it with an everyday essential like the Scoop Neck Top in luxe crêpe de chine.


Insets are placed at each side of this dress for a beuatifully flowing silhouette that flatters most figures. Make it floor length for an evening gown or cut it a bit shorter for a more casual look. The tea length is perfect for weddings or evening dates.


You can skip the camisole in this Layered Tank. Play with contrasting colors, two shades of the same hue, or put a print like leopard or floral over a coordinating solid.

This collection is so versatile, with scoop necks and style lines that stay fresh for more than one season. They’re perfect for wearing through early fall all the way into spring.

Happy sewing!

    Most of the clothes look really nice in this collection, but those look 1-2 sizes bigger than the model…

    I like this collection but wish the model were a real plus size.
