    I really like the jacket plus the blazer style top, culottes and the skirt. Structured yet casual. I don’t wear dresses but think the halter dress would be great for a dress up event.

    Mood Fabrics’ brown fabric choices for the blazer are much nicer than some of the ready-to-wear khaki or tan choices I see on store clothing racks! I like the original black print shown on the lower halter dress photo-it looks so polished and I can see other solid tone-on-tone prints being used as well. The animal print culottes actually look fine. I’m not much of a fan of animal print for dresses though.

    The yellow halter dress appeals to the wintry-weary sewist in me craving bright colours and some curvy seams! But I do need sleeves!

    I like one of the things that they are not advertising, anyone know where the orange and cream color block sweatshirt is from or the pattern?

    I like the one sleeve dress and the Jacket, my comment is why are you talking about their designs. when you should encourage them to go forward so they can get better . I am a designer and you got to crawl before you walk and they are trying. Don’t get me wrong, you have the right to voice your comments, but can you do better. If you want to see things better look at yourself first before knocking them. Everybody don’t like the same designs or fashions so be more nicer than making them feel bad.

      You have a very good point, but ultimately the fact is that they are a business, and if their product is disliked by the majority of their target audience then they’re doing something wrong.
      The fact that they have such a direct link to their customers should be seen as a priceless thing. This is not a feel good party. It’s business, plain and simple.
      The fact that people feel the need to comment their dislike is actually a bit of a backwards compliment – they like the brand enough to voice their opinion in the hopes that their opinion will be heard and possibly adopted in some way, so that they can continue being a customer.
      If they didn’t want to give repeat business they wouldn’t have commented. They’d have just left.

    concur with all the other commenters – especially the last skirt; It’s almost painful to see, mostly due to the fact that it looks like the model accidentally put the skirt on backwards. Gathering like that at the front gives all kinds of awkward shapes and movement. It’s not placed where there would be a natural protrusion or natural movement, e.g. the back or hips (or even decided in to equal gathers above each thigh). With some slight tweaking it could be a stunning piece but as it is now, it’s just… strange. I could see myself making that skirt, but splitting the extra fall in the front into two equally spaced.

    I care for none of these, patterns or styling, but on another point – What do you mean “April” issue? I just re-subscribed (not sure why) and I received a “Spring 2015” issue. Is there actually an April issue? What is the schedule for the magazine? What has happened to the critical eye and emphasis on fashion AND interesting design techniques? Hot mess – I concur Tika1210.

      Burda is actually a monthly German magazine. It’s translated into a bunch of languages, including English- but the English version is for Britain, not the US. I buy my British import from a magazine shop. Last year sometime they decided to release a quarterly US version.

    I like them all except the tiered dress, the yellow dress and the chiffon skirt – though that’s just an age issue – I might have worn any of them if I were younger! I definitely would have gone for the drop-waist dress. It’s lovely. The jacket is great and I love the culottes. I also very much appreciate the fabric suggestions – that’s so helpful.

    The one shouldered dress could be made to work but as to the rest this is one hot mess.

      No. One-shouldered dresses are bad and wrong. As are asymmetrical hems.

      They’re trashy.

    I have to agree. That purple print dress has too much going on. The chambray dress, maybe ok for a 10yr old. Everything else looks awful…maybe a different fabric choice would make a difference? Not sure. The wrap dress, maybe, maybe in a more feminine light colored print….that black fabric…yuk. The ‘blazer’ top…it looks like a simple wrap top w. folded back lapels…again…maybe another fabric would have made the difference. All of them totally miss the mark as far as I can see.

    That purple dotted dress is terrible, just terrible. That poor woman. Most of these are flat-out ugly. I am being blunt because I’m assuming Burda wants honest feedback. STOP with the formless sacks already! The only time that drop-waisted dresses looked good was in the 1920s — but then only on anorexic women who put lead on their faces so they could appear dead and pale. I would wear none of these.

      Your comment made me laugh :) I mean you are on point as bad as it sounds.

      It’s bit of a mess really. The yellow dress is so silly, suitable for a fancy dress party.
