This new collection called Cherry Blossom is from the October 2015 issue of BurdaStyle magazine. It’s filled with modern pieces inspired by Japanese culture including a gorgeous kimono jacket, leather pencil skirt and wrap dress.


This slim leather pencil skirt features round inserts in the front and back, which makes it a special and unique piece. Challenge yourself by working with leather.


This kimono wrap blouse can also be made into a dress, with long sleeves or short sleeves. You can choose to add a wide wrap belt, which gives it a truly Japanese feel. It has side panels made of silk crepe with a pleated effect and the front is concealed with snaps.

This round neck blouse features small gathers and then falls beautifully leaving no need for bust darts. The hem falls longer on the sides and the sleeves are slightly flared at the end. Will look very expensive when made with a soft silk material.


This swanky dress features a standup collar and it is a little bit shorter in the front than in the back, which accentuates a beautiful figure. Raglan 3/4 sleeves with color blocking give it a modern feel. It’s a challenging dress that can be made with a lot of creativity.


We love those dresses that are available to every figure type – and this wrap dress accentuates everyone’s curves. This dress drapes off the body and features long sleeves with slight trumpets and gathered at the shoulders.


This striking dress is a lovely choice for a fancy evening out. It is tight-fitting, high-necked, but with small waterfall neckline with a dramatic high collar and a v shaped dip in the back.


This oversized chunky knit sweater will be perfect for chilly fall days. The wide collar forms a counterpoint to the long raglan sleeves. An inconspicuous zipper allows for easy on and off.


These modern creased culotte pants feature front creases, which give them a polished feel. They feature two hidden front hip pockets, one hidden back pocket and a front zipper. These are dressy pants that can be made a variation of ways, in three different lengths.


This chic oversized kimono jacket has a shawl collar and raglan sleeves, which have a simple interface. However, you will feel the challenge when sewing the lining, pockets and back vent. Wear over a fancy evening dress or just pair with cigarette jeans. You could also make this in a plaid wool for a cool winter look.


Happy Sewing!

    With the exception of the high-necked sheath dress, which I adore, I just see too much fabric everywhere.

    Love the interesting color blocking on the Swanky Dress. It balances a top-heavy figure and slims and lengthens the figure as well. Good job, BurdaStyle !

      I’m pretty sure that’s included. It is in the magazine.

    The fabric choices are a little bit “Matrix”-y, but lovely patterns- esp the wrap dress!
