We are sharing with you a new collection of plus size patterns from burda style magazine. This collection is styled with a nod to the countryside, and we think it is perfect for fall!

Everyday Equestrian is a pattern collection of both rustic and romantic styles which can be worn in the country or city. These designs are flattering and tailored to the body, made with many lovely fabrics, from leather, sequins, and rich textured fabrics. Check out the entire collection below!

These hip hugging Leather Trousers are so stylish and comfortable to wear with the top yoke sewn with elastic. These trousers are nicely panelled and are flattering on the leg – sure to be a staple in your fall wardrobe.

We adore the styling of this Corset with the Hook and Eye Jacket. The corset cinches in the waist to accentuate the waistline. It has different panels so you can incorporate various fabrics and textures to create a truly wonderful piece of wearable art! This Hook and Eye jacket is classically styled with nicely structured sleeves and waistline.

Here is the lovely Flouncy Dress that is so figure flattering. The bust pieces and skirt beautifully gather into the waist panel, and the flounces on the sleeve hems give this dress a lovely touch. This dress is finished off with a neckline detail and centre front appliqué sure to make a statement.

This leather accented Blouson Jacket is great for fall, and the style is so edgy! This semi-fitted jacket has many panels and seams, and a zipper front closer. It has a high collar for warmth and beautifully fitted sleeves that don’t add bulk.

This is a lovely outfit consisting of the Military Jacket and the Elasticated Maxi-Skirt. We love the masculine style jacket worn with this ultra feminine skirt.

This shining Empire Top can be worn casual or elegant! It features many flattering details like the under bust gathers and the sleeve flounces. We love the empire waist panel that sits just under bust, and you can even cut this panel in a contrast fabric for even more style.

This collection has many versatile designs that can be interchanged and worked into your existing wardrobe. If you want this style now, try sewing the Leather Trousers or the Elasticated Maxi-Skirt, they are quick to sew and easy to wear.

Happy Sewing!

    I have been a long time customer of Burda Fashions. The fashions at that time were nice but not fabulose. Now, they are glamorous, even for plus size ladies. I realy like the styles that the pattern makers are designing now. It has a WOW factor to it.

    I’m actually really keen to try these patterns but I can’t quite wrap my head around the idea of printing out a dress pattern on my home printer. I just imagine that the number of pages involved would be enormous and I wonder how confusing it would all be. Has anyone actually printed out these patterns and used them? Did you find them difficult to assemble?

      I’ve printed out quite a few patterns from Burda and other sites. The pages are labelled for easy assembly. Usually A>A, B>B, C>C,…AA>AA, BB>BB, CC>CC, etc. It can be somewhat time consuming to cut and tape the pieces together. Depending on the pattern you can end up printing out 50+ pages, so I suggest printing out one of their smaller free patterns as a test run. I’ve found that the cheaper printer paper works better, it’s a little thinner and easier to deal with. A positive of printing it out on printer paper is that the pattern will be much more durable than the regular pattern paper.

      Hello dibba,

      Our downloadable print patterns print out on a number of pages on your home printer. You then tile and tape the pages together to get your sewing pattern.

      We have created instructions on how to print out and use our downloadable patterns. You can find this PDF on all our pattern pages, just click the little grey question mark beside the word Type. here is a pattern URL for example to find these instructions:

      Thanks !

    Love the jackets, the flouncey dress is ok… but better than most offerings and the pants reminded me of maternity pats. Ugh!

      Thanks for pointing that out, I didn’t realize that the top yoke for the pants was made of jersey and not leather.

    I love the patterns, I can’t wait to finish my current project to start on the dress and the military jacket (I have a soft spot for anything military and sailor style). I just need to rethink the fabric and colours for the southern hemisphere summer :D

    I love these. I went to a plus store recently and the cloths were either too young or too old. I guess I consider myself in-between. These are perfect no matter what the age!

    Oh, I thought that the white skirt had an asymmetrical hemline, but upon closer inspection it seems like she’s just holding it up. Still looks sweet but I wonder if I can do a variation on that to make it look like the picture without manual assist……hmmmm…

      Katanarose,there are a number of things you can do for an assymetrcal look to this simple skirt. To make it look the way it does when the model holds it up, sew a button to the inside of the skirt at a point that looks the same as where the model’s hand is. Sew a reinforcing patch inside, under the button, so the button won’t make a hole in the fabric. Make several buttonholes in a length of ribbon, long enough to create the effect you want, and sew the ribbon to the the waist on the inside. Put button through ribbon and you have a demurely pulled up side.

      2nd method: You could either just cut front and back at a slant or gather a bunch of the fabric together and sew in place.
      3rd method: Where you want the gathering to happen on the skirt, make a vertical casing of either ribbon or same fabric as skirt, leaving top and bottom open. Run a folded cord, ribbon or narrow piece of skirt fabric through it. Sew fold of cord through top of casing and you can pull the cords through to ruche the skirt or let it down when you don’t want the gathers.
      4th Method: Sew some elastic horizontally at about mid thigh going around one thigh and behind. This would pull in the skirt to give another type of asymmetric look. Or you could make it as a casing and cord instead of using elastic.

    Fantastic! Wow! After the last plus sized patterns this is a complete 180! Even used a plus-sized model?! It’s great to get an idea how the clothes will hang. Vast improvement, love all the patterns. Well…..would do the tunic in a less shiny fabric but it went with the shoot, I suppose.

    Keep up the great work.

    These styles are indeed beautiful, but I get tired of seeing necklines on tops and dresses that go halfway down the torso. Not all of us are interested in exposing the top half of our chest. Sure, a camisole can be worn underneath, but that gets tiresome especially if it’s a hot day or one just doesn’t want a layered look.

    Gorgeous model, and some great designs!

    I second the vote for older models. I’d love to see some 40+ modesl, and age appropriate clothes. Mature styles can be very chic and stylish.
