From us to you in the comfort of your own home we showcase the new pattern collection from burda style magazine’s November issue. It’s pouring outside and the rain is lashing against the windows; the mist is thick on the fields and meadows all you want to do is slip into some comfy clothes and cuddle up inside. This collection features many easy-to-make loungewear patterns sewn in cozy knit fabrics.

This Long Waistcoat, with wide collar, takes the place of an XXL scarf for a flouncy feminine look. This easy-to-sew style has dropped shoulders and a tie belt out of the same fabric that gives a little definition.

Sometimes you can just enjoy doing nothing – with this comfy Chill Dress of fine jersey it’s no problem! It’s so easy-to-make with only two side seams, two shoulder seams and no fastening. The details are delightful – like the oval V-neckline and the dropped shoulders.

This pretty, waist length Wrap Knit Top has extra long ties to bring out your individual shape. Brilliant for keeping warm – the sleeves are especially long, so you don’t need wrist-warmers. It’s the ideal match for these Jersey Trousers with extra wide hem bands. And if you’re a beginner sewer, you can sew these trousers easily with step-by-step sewing instructions with pictures included in the instructions!

Cozy at home or when you’re out for an autumn stroll. This draft-it-yourself Poncho can be made easily out of cable knit fabric. The hem edges are accented with a trim and the sleeves holes are two slits.

This lovely Mohair Shirt lets your skin breath. The simple V-neckline top with dropped shoulders, made from chic mohair knit, is quick-to-sew and great to wear! We love it worn with this Leather Mini skirt with zip pockets and a front slit that can be worn in or out of the house.

At work we always have to be perfectly dressed. So it’s lovely to be able to let-go at home and this relaxed Banded Tank is the perfect thing to wear! The doubled hem band gives a casual blouson-effect. This top also makes a great layering piece.

Heading out to the corner store? With this chic Leather Tie Jacket, everything’s more fun! The casual cut with open edges compliment the home-wear-look. The fastening is done with leather ties which are caught in the side seams.

This classy mohair Knit Pullover is great for relaxing in, and is a cinch to make! You just need thin knitting to cast off stitches on the hem edge.

Happy lounging, and sewing!

    Is it possible to make the mohair dropped shoulder top in a summer fabric? if so what would you suggest i.e. lightweight viscose?

      Susanzeyher, Maybe you can layer the short sleeves or save them for warm weather, get a jump start. Being an international website, we aren’t all in the midst of winter. This pattern collection offers patterns for all seasons. BSS

    Pastel knits and short skirts aren’t quite what I associate with winter – I’m currently lounging comfortably around in (lined) chocolate plush trousers, a deep gold button-down shirt with embroidery down the front, and a fox-coloured velvet jacket, all grabbed almost at random out of the wardrobe when I had to get dressed in five minutes flat this morning: temperature hovering just over sixty degrees.

    Evidently my ideas of lounge-wear – and central heating – are about sixty years out of date!

    I just made the tank top. Wore it the next day. It will be a staple and not just for lounging around the house! Will post soon. Yes need some thick jersey to make the pants now.

      the first one on the page is the November 2012 issue, which is where these patterns are from.

      Here’s another link: http://fashionistafabrics.com/buno20.html

      The original person I replied to is in the United States, where I am. I don’t know if they deliver internationally.

    These patterns are extremely useful and versatile – well done! They also sew up to be great gifts as they don’t need to be exact in size. Thanks!

    I am having issues with installing the pdf reader on the website that you list and then downloading the patterns. Is there a way to use Adobe to download the patterns or must they be via the Wise Convert?

    any ideas as I love some of the patterns on the site!

    I’m not usually into Burda’s knit lounging wear, but I’ve been so sick & when this issue showed up I wanted to crawl inside every item ESP those jersey pants so cute!

      Jennbontrager, I am so glad you like the patterns!! At this time we do not have a discount available for the purchase of multiple patterns via BurdaStyle.com. The alternative would be to try and get your hands on the October issue of burda style magazine. We do not sell the magazine on this website but you can try calling around to your local fabric/craft stores for a copy. Each issue includes the patterns. You will need to transfer/copy each pattern from the single pattern page within the issue.

      you can buy the magazine here:
      these patterns are in the November issue. I’ve purchased from them before & they’re great :)

      If you haven’t used them before, the sheets can be confusing at first. I take a sharpie & outline my size. Then I tape the entire sheet to a window & tape another piece of paper over it & trace. The sharpie lines are easier to see this way. Good luck!
