This new collection from the September 2015 issue of BurdaStyle gives us our first taste of fall! You will love the pea coat and cape for those first chilly days of the new season and we can’t wait to sew up a few bohemian maxi dresses with long sleeves.


This ‘70s style pea coat features large lapels, hidden hip pockets and hits at about hip length. It’s made in a wool fabric that’s perfect for fall and winter. So chic with leather boots and a plaid scarf!

This sleeveless mini dress features a collar that you can choose to attach or detach, you can even choose to make it in a different color or wear with a different garment.

101 fabric
Liberty of London June’s Meadow Red/White Silk-Cotton Voile; Liberty of London Beth’s Flowers in Multicolor Silk-Cotton Voile; Liberty of London Daydream Purple/Blue Silk-Cotton Voile

While this long maxi dress might feel quite matronly it’s actually very fun and bohemian when made in a lace or floral fabric. A typical high-necked peasant dress (country dress in Western style) is now in the trend-focus. The top with plastron is accented with piping. Wear with boots and you’re good to go!

    Absolutely LOVE the 70s style Maxi Peasant dress. I have a large (and growing) collection Vintage Fabrics. Now I just need to make my mind out which one (or 3) I would love that dress in hehe. Shame it’s getting colder here now as we are in Autumn (and to be honest, only had a week or so of lovely sunny weather back in May lol) so I am tempted to make it in a heavier cotton or something. Showed the dress to hubby and he loved it as well then said ’You’ve loads of genuine 70s ones like that haven’t you?’ Well, Yes. But not one I have made myself out of a fabric I have picked lol. My 14 yr old daughter (who is almost as tall as me now and already pinching my clothes!) likes a few things from this issue, including the same 70s style dress. She also loves the Jacket and the Longer coat version. I have some light/med weight Wool Coat Fabric in TARDIS Blue that I have been saving for the coat she finally decides is the right one. So it’s either the long coat or the Jacket and Skirt for her (which I might get if she grows out of it lol). Not a fan of the sports style stuff in the issue but then I’m not a fan of coats/jackets/capes that are squared or hark to the 80s but each to their own.

    When it says these are from the September 2015 issue, does that mean the Fall 2015 US issue?

    I’m totally in love! Must make all of these ! (except the coats) For me, id make the bib part of the maxi dress in lace so it wouldn’t be too matronly. One could easily add sleeves on any of these short or sleeveless dresses if desired. Thank you Burda….you rock!

    That maxi is gorgeous. i love the bib front. Bishop sleeves are also my favorite.

    I’m pretty over shift patterns, but the burgandy dress with the oversized detachable collar just went on my “to make” list. The seaming gives it great shaping which still leaving it loose enough to wear a long sleeve under.

    And the dark blue jacket with the big collar is gorgeous.

    All in all some great retro inspired pieces that aren’t too costumey. Great work Burda!

    I’m in love with the last maxi dress…I was there during the shooting!!! A few months ago, I was passing by that cafe and admired the beautiful girl and the amazing dress. I didn’t know it was for Burdastyle ! What a surprise when I saw the photo in the german burdastyle preview…I hope to find the appropriate fabric (???) and make the dress and then take a picture in front of the same cafe…
