It’s a sunny autumn afternoon and you need a relaxed outfit for a picnic in the park. These designs from the January 2010 issue of Burda Style magazine have easygoing fall style for the weekend.

Want a comfortable weekend top that still shows off your feminine side? Highlight your bust in this pretty Empire Waist Top with flirty ruffles along the V neckline. The longer length can go with leggings or jeans, like these classic 5 Pocket Trousers.

A button placket outlined in contrasting piping gives just a hint of folk to this three quarter sleeve blouse. Pair it with boyfriend jeans and flats for a sweet weekend outfit.

Bundle up against the weather in a full length parka. This design is cinched at the waist to reduce bulk. Keep warm chic on the Alps are on your way to the subway!

Go for a relaxed afternoon stroll in this flowing Empire Waist Dress with hippie details like an embellished V neckline and tied up sleeves. This is a lovely pattern for showing off a boho print. It will be your new favorite weekend outfit!

Don’t forget this cute Shearling Vest at your next folk festival or bluegrass concert! Throw this toasty warm layer over a sundress or peasant top for folksy flair.

Polish off your outfit with a nice Relaxed Blazer. This is a great piece for pulling together jeans and tee shirt, or slip it over a crisp oxford for a preppy touch.

These designs are great for those autumn afternoons with just a hint of chill in the air. Kick through some leaves, enjoy a cup of tea on the porch, or find a county fair to show off these cute patterns!

Happy sewing!

    Love that paisley shirt! And that Liberty fabric is in my stash. Note, however, that Burda Style envelope pattern #7397 is remarkably similar except for the sleeves being full length and gathered at the wrist. I think I might make that one rather than downloading this one and doing my own printing.

    I’m 90% sure these are the same patterns from the first Burda magazine I picked up years ago…

    LOL @ small beer ladies

    I love these new patterns, but I really don’t see the diff between Empire waist dress and Empire waist top except length of body and the details of ruffles and tie. Top and blouse going in my cart though :)

    That is an awfully large beer for such a little lady. All and all these patterns are not bad for plus size
