Soft shades of cream and pink… couture cuts with sophisticated details: These styles from the March 2019 issue of BurdaStyle magazine have that something special for mums and girls that will have you dancing through the days.


An elegant style highlighted by slits in the slightly turned sleeve design and a flattering bateau neckline. The fine silk jersey has a beautiful effect. Style it with a sequin skirt or a pair of black trousers for an evening look.


A romantic pink crêpe sewn in a masculine utility look works, too. The wide trousers with the stitched on pockets gets advantageous shape with the high waist.


Here is the chance to highlight an extravagant fabric, as the cut is one to remain discreetly in the background. A short exposed zipper at the V-neck in back is the only accent point.


This jacket in a biker style with the blouson elements is pure couture. The voluminous organza sleeves are banded at the hem with a sporty cuff – an unexpected and beautiful style juxtaposition.


This shirt with the crossover panels in front and deep set-in sleeves is one for around the house with jogging trousers or with a pencil skirt in the office. The sleeves taper to the hem so that the full look wraps the body. For those who find the neckline too deep, you can wear it with a blouse underneath.


So comfortable that we could choose to wear it every day – and so elegant, that it also works for an evening out. This lightly flared jersey dress features inlaid pleats and a mini waterfall neckline. It is sewn in a coated jersey that adds an incredibly fine appeal.


This asymmetric style sewn with an ultra-soft jersey drapes around the body with soft pleats. The flowing fabric enhances the strategic draping.


Sew this skirt with the partially topstitched box pleats in front today and wear it tomorrow! This is a good choice for beginning sewists, too. A glittering elastic band is chic and comfortable. Trendsetters will wear a tulle skirt underneath, as shown here.


A touch princess, a dash of flapper girl… This straight-line cut style is stunning not only because of the glamorous sequin fabric. The sheer sleeves give a subtle peek of skin and the slip dress nuance is sure to draw a second appreciative look with its artful understatement.


This is a style winner. The grey sweatshirt fabric lets the sleeves sewn with a reversible sequin fabric shine. Overcut shoulders and a relaxed fit keep this also wonderfully comfortable. For a look that is relaxed without the sparkle, simply sew it fully in sweatshirt fabric.


An impressive style ready for your next occasion. This dramatic midi dress is sewn in a delicate plumetis. Transparent batwing sleeves and pleats along the waistline band accent in all the right places. If the bodice is too sheer for your comfort, you can add a lining layer of georgette or a soft batiste.


A look that is totally sporty in front and absolutely girly in back! The back panel seams crossover only at the top – a charming panel of batiste and lace cascade to the hem.


These are really great for tumbling about. The elastic waistline includes a cording to easily adjust to comfort. The hems can gather on the sides with bands, as well.


Here is the new wardrobe favorite for the youngsters. The plastron is connected by panel seams and framed by sewn-in ruffles, mini flutter sleeves cap the shoulders and a lace trim finishes it sweetly. This style can also be a good choice for flower girls…

    I hardly ever look at the photos anymore, the styling and fit is often so bad. Just the line drawings. MORE LINE DRAWINGS PLS!

    As I started to type this, I wanted to type that these designs are ugly. On second thought, the problem may be the awful styling. I think the tulle skirt worn under the pleated skirt just weird. Showing the crossover top while the model is laying on the floor is ridiculous. And I can’t decide if the inlaid pleat top/dress is a bad design or if the model is wearing the wrong size. This collection is a big miss.

      And you do realize that a lot of people have poured effort and thought into these projects, just for you to slam the end result.That is not cool. As a fellow creative person you are expected to be a bit more diplomatic.

      What is not cool is buying one of these patterns and investing money, time, and effort into making it only to realize your garment does not look like the picture. Burda is in the business of designing and selling fashion patterns. They are not going to sell very many patterns if they present the designs with bad styling and bad fit. Case in point, this pattern bundle has 0 downloads. So far, no one is buying it.
