Just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean we have to only wear bulky sweaters! Feminine dresses are perfect for an elegant party, just add a festive blazer and you will be stylish and warm for a night out. The understated art deco details add extra beauty this time of year and adorn this collection from the December issue of BurdaStyle.

A scarf with a dress? No, a dress with a scarf! The scarf is attached into the neckline and is decorated with a fringed border. Slits at the lower side seams allow lots of room to be comfortable when walking.

A stylish alternative to the evening dress, the brocade blazer with gold buttons, raglan sleeves and figure-flattering panel seams transforms the blouse and black trouser combination into a high fashion statement.

This dress design is highlighted with flowing flounce sleeves and skirt panels with cut-on godets and a panne velvet fabric are combined for a fresh shimmering draw of the light.

Cool structure with a bouclé fabric – or a bold pattern? This poncho is so easy to sew together, that we recommend sewing one of each during the same sewing session!

Perfect for those looking to sew their first coat or to try a new style. The maxi coat with the shawl collar, overcut shoulders and oversized pockets completely avoids lining – though it is absolutely cosy and warm thanks to the brushed wool fabric.

A clean style on top with the black petersham and a sweet pink for the body. The dress with ruffles is beautifully playful with its contrasts.

Charming, and at the same time so captivating! This blouse includes a wide ruffle at the neckline and is held in place by straps made from petersham ribbon that can be looped into a bow in front.

Just beautiful! Crisp lines let the extravagantly embroidered tulle take center stage in this flapper dress. A belt in a deep black silk satin defines the silhouette and the shoulder seam gets a decorative touch with a petersham bow.

A sewn-in accessory at the neckline is a beautiful accent. The tunic features wide flounces on the sleeves as a striking balance to the standing collar set above the plunging v-neckline. The trendy panne velvet is not the easiest to work with, however the result is worth the effort.

A modern twist for a lace dress. The scalloped border isn’t at the skirt hem, rather it edges the mini-peplum and is also gathered to finish the sleeves. The zipper doesn’t hide in a side seam for this design, either. It is a prominent element that accents the middle front. This dress is a featured pattern in the sewing course of the sewing supplement with step by step instructions. You can do it!
