Classic and elegant cuts sewn with tweed fabrics in layers of colour make this modern and mature collection from the 09/2017 issue of BurdaStyle an autumn must-have for him and her.


These trousers in an olive coloured tweed with the XL rolled hem cuffs and creases are both warm and completely elegant! The wide waistband draws attention with two oversized buttons.


The fantastic jacquard is remarkable on its own and certainly as a highlight on this cropped jacket. Wide sleeve cuffs and patch pockets are all combined in one perfect style. The swan neckline sits flawlessly due to the placement of the darts and the overcut shoulders give the visual effect of a cape. Style tip: This style is also a great look when worn over a sheath dress.


A shawl collar, flap pockets, leather buttons along the double-breasted front and a tab in back is the mixture of the best classic features in one fitted look. The blended colours of the herring-bone tweed are the ultimate finish.


This style is one that shapes the curves for every body. The cropped blazer features a band at the waistline and a peplum and box pleats in back. The staggered lapels have an optical stretch.


Here is a vichy blouse that is beautifully feminine. This style includes a romantic flounce cuff that is defined with a narrow bit of velvet.


This knee-length dress is practical and ladylike, especially when sewn with a fuss-free polyester crêpe. The waistline is shaped by two overlapping strips that are secured into the darts and the side seams, and a slight V-neckline in back shows a modest amount of skin.


Sometimes the smallest details make the biggest difference. Here it is the mini side ruffle sewn into the waistband for a faux buttoned pocket look on this skirt. A covered walking slit in the middle back allows for plenty of freedom to move.


Tab details at the waistband and offset pleat is a proper, yet eye-catching, and gives this skirt an extra touch. Wear it with a white blouse and pumps as an elegant look for the office.


This dress with the playful fox print has a country feeling that works just as well in the city. Panel seams and sleeve hems are decorated with tucked in ruffles and the tying band gets outlined with a black velvet piping.


This wool jacket with the textured fleece collar, flap pocketes and a storm flap in back make this perfect for the changing of the seasons. Uniform buttons keep everything in place and fabric bands to keep out the wind are at the sleeve, neck and waist. You could also sew this jacket in a sturdy camel colour gabardine for a fantastic cropped trench look.


The masculine stripe gets a feminine vibe with this blouse featuring the shirred neckline, dropped shoulders and sleeves that draw together with tying bands – a combination that blends the best of both worlds.


BUSINESS: A sharp style for business. This waistcoat sewn with a wool diagonal texture features flat buttons and a double-breasted front, as well as the tab in back for a look that is both classic and timeless.

CASUAL: In a cool military green, the highlights are the welt pockets and the small uniform buttons. Panel seams as well as an adjustable tab with a metal buckle in back provide the shape. Tip: Wash the fabric before sewing – this will lend the trendy vintage look.

TRACHT: A bordeaux colour velvet, a contrast piping and the double-breasted closure with metal buttons…the elegant waistcoat with flap pockets is an instant style upgrade for tracht looks. A special touch: The lining at the breast pocket can be subtly pulled to look like a pocket scarf.

    I am having problems with Vogue pattern 7488 version B connecting the collar (18), Front Facing (19), and Lapel(15). I figured out how to attach the lapel and I thought the collar was connected to the Front Facing correctly. But, when connecting these pieces to the Lapel, it is not correct. Can someone assist me with understanding the instructions?.
