Ace that interview in this collection of trousers and blazers. The menswear inspiration comes through in rows of buttons and sharp lapels. These designs are from the November 2010 issue of Burda Style magazine.


Play with proportion in these Wide Legged Trousers. A tiny jacket and sky high shoes strike just the right balance for a cool silhouette.


A Wrap Blouse with a large hip tie and slouchy fit isn’t overly feminine, despite buttoned cuffs and a V neckline.


The Nautical Wrap Top has a V neckline created by a wrap silhouette. It’s extra long for a slouchy fit.


These Trousers with Ankle Zips have exposed zips at the ankle for just a little visual interest. They also help show off your shoes! These pants are sharply creased with slash pockets.

A clean lined Coat without Collar to throw over your professional outfits for a polished, minimalist look. It’s sleek and won’t disrupt your style.


The Trousers with Front Pleats are structured with pleats at the high waistline. They have a straight fit that tapers at the ankle.


Make the Jacket with Contrasting Collar pop with lapels and pocket tabs in contrasting duchesse satin. Coordinate the trim with your blouse or a pocket square for even more pizzazz.


Wear the Cropped Jacket open, or button it for a structured top. The cropped fit is perfect for wearing with all your high waisted pants.


Doll up skinny pants and a silk tank with this Cropped Velvet Jacket. Velvet lapels add that necessary luxe factor to give your outfit a boost.


Make your office look more playful with these tailored Cropped Trousers. They’re designed without a waistband or belt loops for a streamlined, hip hugging fit.


Create a tuxedo style look with this Double Breasted Blouse featuring rows of buttons in crisp white cotton poplin. It’s cut a little shorter for petite figures.

Try on a dapper new look with this collection. If you’re more of a girly girl, try the blazers with a pencil skirt or pair your new trousers with heels and a silk tank.

Happy sewing!

    I wish you could make some really nice basic fitted shirts. You have a lot of great styles that I like, but I would love to make a basic shirt.

    Everytime one of these collections comes along I’m hoping to find one. But I never do. I guess it isn’t as fun to design a regular shirt compared to the more original styles.

    Do you think you could do that for me?

    The cropped jacket looks good, but—— press studs are not supposed to see stitching on the outside!!!
