We also released each collection as a bundle for the lookbook launch, so if you LOVE every style in a collection you can purchase in bulk at a discount! Click the collections below to shop the bundles. Me personally, I’m all about the dresses in this issue – I literally want to sew them all.


Cool leather, touches of embroidery and warm earth tones bring the Western feel to your wardrobe with these relaxed styles.


The marine look is still a top trend on our wishlist for this season featuring new combinations of casually elegant retro cuts and sophisticated details.


A range of styles from elegant to cool and from sexy to charming.


This special collection of our favorite dresses just shows you how much of an impact fabric choice can make. For every figure and for every style – let’s go!


It’s all about the fruit prints! These sweet basics in cotton and jersey prints are fun to make and fun to wear.

Which patterns are your favorite from the 05/2018 issue? Planning to sew any for Me Made May #MMMay18? May is such an exciting month for me, the weather finally starts to get nicer, and I always get this boost of inspiration and drive to sew even more.

Also don’t forget that our Dress For Success Sew-Along which is FREE to register for until May 15th.

Happy Sewing!

    I love the patterns and the ability to download digital files. Can you show some of the patterns with older models? I hesitate to purchase some of the patterns thinking they will look ridiculous on my 60 something body.

    Love this issue! it is your best in a while! I love the presentation of slim and full-figured models with the same item – keep on doing this. Gorgeous fabrics. Patterns are very wearable.

    Cannot tell you how much I appreciate the opportunity to access the monthly Lookbooks this way!! As a Burda magazine subscriber, this allows me to organize and catalog which items I want to make much easier….. as well as to sort of ‘see in a different light’ those that might have skipped my attention in the issue, but now realize they need to go in the queue to. Thank you!! :)

    Hi Burda! I just wanted to congratulate you for mixing wonderful pictures of “regular” size models and “plus” size models on the same pages! It makes a lot of sense, and it’s much more engaging and modern to see these beautiful women of all shapes and sizes , not being separated in different sections of the magazine! Well done!

    For long time I haven’t saw a burda issue to like so much like this one, it’s like being reinvented! Totally love it!

    I LOVE the idea of being able to take a peek at the magazine AND being able to order a pattern right through the “look-book”! This is a cost savings to those of us who can’t necessarily afford a subscription, but who might like to purchase a pattern or two from the fashions shown in the magazine. Thank you!
