Stylish outerwear is essential for fall. You’ll want to wear these essentials for years to come! These patterns are from the September 2010 issue of Burda Style magazine.

The 8 Button Blouse has the proper style of a peacoat with its crossed fronts and buttons. This shape gives you a totally different look with jeans and flats that’s so polished with a little menswear flair.

Look like a femme fatale in the classic trenchcoat. The Twill Trenchcoat is nice for spring, and the Gabardine Trenchcoat has a classic fall look.

Get a totally professional outfit with these Slacks. This pattern has all the details you could want, like a notched waistband, belt loops, and front and back pockets. Make a custom pair in every color!

A classic trenchcoat design gets a whole new look in elegant crêpe satin. This is a great outer layer for the opera or an evening party. Slip it on over a slinky dress for a glamorous night.

This pretty blouse has such a relaxed style. The deep split neckline and high collar have understated sex appeal. Make this in a soft fabric and upgrade your weekend blouse.

A good skirt is all you need to pack for a weekend vacation. This mid rise knee length skirt in sophisticated leather is a great every day look to dress up with a silk scarf.

An easygoing Tunic Dress keeps you stylish while relaxing over the weekend or on vacation. Cinch a wide belt around your waist to nip in the straight silhouette.

Crêpe de chine turns a classic trenchcoat design into a special evening layer. This piece makes an elegant finish to fall outfits. Slip a silk scarf in a coordinating print around your neck for an elegant touch.

Throw your favorite sweater over this cute leather mini skirt. Little slits at the front are flirty, and a nice change from regular pleats and walking slits.

    In the picture with the knee-length skirt (7th from the top), is she wearing the 8 button blouse buttoned all the way to the top or a different top? I love it! Pattern? Thanks.

    Since full-length trench coats seemed to be history in spring (all one could find were hip length or car coats in retail stores), this Sept 2010 issue has a purpose in my eyes-trenchcoat making!

    These photographs aren’t particularly helpful in seeing the shape of the garments at all. The poses obscure how they fit.

    Totally agree… Why no plus sizes? Do you know how many of us need larger sizes?

    Why can’t I get the trench coat in a plus size??

    Personally, I love seeing the same patterns used in different ways. Helps get those creative thoughts going! Plus, you get more use out of the pattern.

      Well, usually when they have multiple projects from one master pattern, they will mention it in the description (e.g. “this is the same pattern as the [other thing]”) so that you don’t buy multiple copies.
      I noticed that they didn’t do it this time, and I think it’s misleading. I like Burda and I like that they do multiple interpretations of the same pattern, but this is a little shady.

      I completely agree, the fabric changes it all and I do love creating a totally different look out of the same pattern and proportions. Well noticed!

    I agree with mccixix I was just thinking the same… you have the Tunic shirt and dress…same pattern, extended seam line… …. very silly!!!

    The 6 button blouse has… 8 buttons (10 if you count the sleeves)? LOL! Aside from that… this collection is four patterns, not nine (the blouse is just the trenchcoat, shortened and without the back flap). I’m all for reusing the same pattern in different fabrics and lengths with variations, but this is getting a bit silly. That said, the split-neck blouse has a versatile shape and timeless appeal. A solid pattern. (Update: Looks like they fixed the name of the button blouse, haha.)
