Dive into a world of colors and light with a style that is daringly luxurious. We love all the printed fabrics in this new collection from burda style magazine’s February 2013 issue. Both beauty and brilliance are brought to life in these designs made in shiny fabrics styled with extravagant jewelry.

Stroll through the city in this wonderful airy Dress. Particularly lovely features of this style include the swinging knee-length skirt with its elasticated waist, the long sleeves, and the dazzling pink binding on the neck edge.

The effects of wearing this beautiful Brocade Coat are out of this world! The section seams bring out your figure and the front closes edge-to-edge with little hooks – the beautiful round buttons are purely ornamental. We love it paired with these Silk Capris. They’re super comfortable, thanks to the wide fit and the low crotch.

This bright Dress sewn in bouclé is just as good for work as it is for leisure wear. It has a smartly dressed, but casual look, with its mini-sleeves and placket neckline with simple collar. The self-fringed edges add an attractive finishing touch.

This Flared Tunic with wide 3/4 length sleeves, is reminiscent the ones hippies wore in the sixties. Its highlight is the light green woven trim, which is sewn to the neck and hem edges.

These narrow-silhouette Trousers bring out the best of this printed jacquard fabric. The cut and fold-over waistband make the waist look longer and little side slits give the leg additional length.

This silk printed Caftan has an oval neckline and a petersham ribbon to tie the waist. Side seams prevent unwanted glimpses and make for a great shape.

This Sleeveless Jumpsuit is sure to put you in a good mood! The elasticated back makes it casual and comfortable. The wrapped bodice has a deep neckline, with contrasting blue binding, make it a sexy eye-catcher. The fabric is classy, shimmering crepe de chine, so the jumpsuit is also suitable to wear for special occasions.

You’ll make a great impression in this Chanel-style Jacket make in a cheerful bright bouclé. This jacket takes a while to make, with the fringed edges and covered snap fasteners. What better to pair it with than a matching Fringed Skirt! This skirt is lovely with its elasticated waist and fringed hemline. We also love the bright and cheerful colored bouclé!

Happy Sewing!

    That brocade jacket is calling my name. It would be perfect to top something else I made.

    What happened to Pattern #131 in the Feb2013 Burda Style magazine? There is a preview picture on page 4, but no pattern. It is a red button-up shirt. In the Instruction pages it goes from pattern 130 to 132. I wanted to make that shirt.

    Man, I would be all over some of these patterns… if they were available in “copy shop” format. It’s just too hard to piece the patterns together when printed at 20% of the original size. And I would have loved to make that jumpsuit for my doll…

    Oh, I feel so at home watching these patterns. This is really my style! :D I particularly like the Caftan, the tunica and the bouclé dress! And something I like even more is the fabric used for the sleeveless jumpsuit. Where, Oh where can I find it? I want to use it for a project that has been waiting for the perfect fabric for weeks.

      Fabrics used in Burda photos are usually available from Alfatex here:


      The site is mostly in German so I usually translate it via my Chrome browser.

      Sadly, the jumpsuit fabric isn’t there.

      @ cjames and @ pharaildis,
      if you have a look at the magazine the fabric sources (as well as sources of jewellery, shoes etc.) are usually mentioned (or is that only in the german issue??)

      Hm, yes, I think I will have to look for the american version of this month’s magazine. Or look for the dutch magazine to see wether this pattern is in it this month. They differ for every country (language), you see, I think that is why the fabric isn’t on the german website.

    Love the high waist on those pants! But I am going to change the pockets when I make them because I know they will flare out ALL the time and I like the lean line of the pants. Now for the perfect fabric…
