This new collection from the August issue of BurdaStyle is roaring with style. Classic styles made in bold leopard fabric for an edgy and cool look that we can’t get enough.

122A fabric
Charcoal Python Printed Stretch Cotton jersey; Ivory/Black Animal Knits; Heathered Wild Dove Stretch Viscose Jersey

Strut through the city in this sexy and sophisticated sheath dress! It fits close and tight to the body but thanks to the stretch material you’re free to move. Dividing seams run down the front to a slit and it closes with a zipper in the back. The collar is semi-square with thick straps. Pair with pumps and a patent leather burgundy belt.

115A fabric
Famous NYC Designer Papyrus/Rosewood/Black Silk Chiffon; Beige and Black Floral Silk Chiffon; 7 inch X 38 inch Black Acrylic/Spandex Rib Knit Trim

This fashionable blouse is so easy to sew, even for beginners! It’s made with a striking animal print chiffon and wide black cuffs. Pair with dark cigarette jeans and loafers.


This seemingly simple t-shirt features short sleeves and hots at the hip. A small ruffle at the front side offers added interest and detail. Dress it up by pairing with a pencil skirt. Edgy and sophisticated.

119 and 121A fabric
Cheetah Printed Stretch Silk Woven; Black/Off-White Cheetah Printed Stretch Cotton Woven; Ballerina Pink Solid Silk

This beautiful pencil skirt features a lovely ruffle that flows from the waistline down the side of the skirt. Leopard and blush pink are two perfect neutrals.

121A fabric
Chocolate/Grey Abstract Stretch Cotton Sateen; Brown/Beige Cheetah Printed Silk Crepe de Chine; Arona Blue Silk Chiffon

This 3/4 sleeve shift dress has a fun and flirty feature, a side pleat panel in a different pop of color fabric. The neckline is round around the neck and the sleeve cuffs feature a small detail of fabric from the pleat.

118A fabric
Beige/Brown Python Printed Stretch Cotton Sateen; Brown/Tan Abstract Stretch Cotton Sateen; Aztec Brown Stretch Cotton Sateen

This classic pencil skirt is given an unexpected twist with the fun leopard print fabric. It fits perfectly with darts in the front and back and the front two rows of gold buttons add a decorative flare. Not to mention, it’s perfectly office-friendly.

102 fabric
Brown/Black Cheetah Printed Micro-Polyester and Cotton; Cheetah-Floral Cotton-Lycra Twill; Rag & Bone Capulet Olive Outerwear Nylon

Sporty & elegant – this parka is so versatile! It’s made in a lightweight, water resistant leopard front material with fabulous features such as a large hood, welt pockets and a drawstring closure.

101 fabric
Medal Bronze Leopard Printed Faux Fur; Metallic Frosted Almond Cheetah Printed Faux Fur; Brown Knitted Faux Fur with Reptillain Laminate

Tres chic! This flared boucle style jacket features an open round neck collar, long sleeves and double breasted closure down the front. Make it in a leopard print as shown for a true statement piece that will last a lifetime.


Happy Sewing!

    Finally! This is the first Burda issue I’ve purchased in 6 months (at least). There are some great patterns. The sheath is beautiful! The blouse with the front ruffle fold is lovely. The shift with the weird pleating is actually really, really cool. A pencil skirt with buttons is always nice to see. And the short swingy jacket looks like a fun make. Nice job!

    Again some parts of this really work for me some do not. I love an animal print actually but the extra bits of pink and blue fabric not so much.

      η φωτογραφία με τη φούστα με τα κουμπιά το πρόδωσε για μένα.
      Το μόνο που μένει είναι να φτιάξεις κάτι από τη συλλογή και να φωτογραφηθείς στο ίδιο μέρος :)

      Το βαθύτερο νόημα είναι ότι η Αθήνα είναι ζούγκλα…
      Και για να κάνουμε κι ένα μικρό κουτσομπολιό στα ελληνικά, το μοντέλο δεν είναι λιγάκι αχτένιστο;

      έτρεχε να ξεφύγει από δακρυγόνα καλέ, γι’αυτό :P
      Βασικά, μου φάνηκε λίγο περίεργος ο λαιμός της. Ίσως να είναι η γωνία, αλλά φαίνεται λίγο τρομακτικός εκεί που ποζάρει πάνω στο ταξί
