Go far afield in this collection of bib dresses, waistcoats, and wool jackets in pale blues and textured fall fabrics. These patterns are from the October 2010 issue of Burda Style magazine. All instructions to previously published patterns have been updated.


A classic six button Double Breasted Peacoat for fall with buttoned cuffs and hip pockets. Spice it up with antique nautical buttons or plaid.


Shirt dresses are a go-to for the boho peasant look, and this Shirt Dress gets extra charm from a bib placket and contrasting cuffs. Belt it for a more fitted shape or wear it short and loose.


Cozy up in this midi length Plaid Coat in warm wool plaid. This full length topper has great style with buttoned cuffs, waist darts, and hip pockets. The slightly flared silhouette and waist sash keep it from overwhelming your figure.


Wool fabric makes these Bermuda Shorts ready for fall. Style them over tights, or juts with oxfords and a blouse. They have no waistband for a slim fit.


Make your outfit more interesting with this military inspired Button Up Steampunk Vest. 12 tiny buttons have that vintage look. It looks more difficult than it is to sew for an impressive finish.

_118 and 124

Make a statement in this short sleeved blouse with an oversized bow at the neckline. The shape is otherwise simple, with no buttons, a high neckline, and plain short sleeves. These Cropped Stretch Pants look so cute as a menswear style with a more feminine piece on top.


A lovely layered Sheet Placket Dress with Slip is an easy bohemian fall outfit. The top layer has a chest placket, buttoned cuffs, and hip pockets. A second layer coordinates with the sheer fabric for everyday wear.

_125 and 124

Change up the look of a Double Breasted Waistcoat with velvet fabric and a waist tie. It’s a menswear meets girly girl look with a vintage touch. A super easy Elastic Jersey Skirt pattern is great for beginners or a quick make for more advanced sewers. It has a loose, stretchy fit with hip pockets that works perfectly with the more intricate vest.


Slip on this Bib Front Blouse for a little country style. A placket with gathers at front and back and a longer hip length is peasant chic with jeans or leggings.

Plan a weekend getaway and take these patterns for a ride. Placket dresses, buttoned up waistcoats, and wooly jackets are just the thing for a few days in the countryside.

Happy sewing!

    Hey BurdaStyle, is it possible to sell this collection under one listing like you have for other collections?

    I made the coat, but couldn’t get my posting on it to include the pattern. Not sure what I did wrong, but I love my ultra warm long coat!

    I made the bib front blouse and the armscye came out too tight, usually a Burda size 40 is plenty roomy for me. I had to add gussets at the last minute!

    Also I am currently making the blazer/pea coat. What a crazy idea to have these partially pre-slashed pockets. It makes it so much harder and awkward. Welt pockets aren’t hard, just give us a flat front with darts, for Pete’s sake, we can handle it! That way we can follow detailed instructions in a book on tailoring, for example, rather than the fast-food-style instructions in the magazine.

    I’ve been sewing Burda patterns for over 10 years but I may give up on you!!! And I was about to take out a subscription.

    @novellegamine – hah, I think you win – war doctor isn’t really Doctor Who! (and John Hurt was wonderful!)

    I really like the dichotomy. It is rugged, yet feminine.

    That long blouse is beautiful and looks completely comfortable to wear.

    Darling coat and I also love the vest! Don’t care much for the shirts, except the bow blouse. I prefer a much more fitted shirt. Will definitely try the vest, and if feeling brave, maybe the coat!

    10/2010 was the first Burda magazine I bought after an absence of 20 or so odd years. The first in English, in any event. First & favourite! The oversized bow blouse is one of my first projects posted here. I made it from the same polkadot fabric that the Duchess of Cambridge wore when she came out of maternity with baby George!!

    I really like parts of this collection. I have made the short sleeved blouse with the large Bow and I still wear it.

    weirdly enough, I’ve always liked this collection. I say weirdly bc shifts/ trapeze style dresses are super iffy on me. The need to be really short, but at 41, they just don’t really work on me anymore. Great for other women though. The double breasted waistcoat is so cute, especially in velvet. And I love her lederhosen-esque wood whittling outfit- obviously the neck ties need to be tamed, but it’s really cute. And yes, maybe it reminds me of the Twelfth Doctor.

      I get more of a Matt Smith vibe from that outfit. I do like it quite a bit either way :)

      Love your comment and the responses for two reasons: the first, at 46 I am still trying to figure out how to wear tunics and trapeze style dresses without looking like a sheep in lamb’s clothing (my current solution – leggings or thick tights with boots, depending on length or like you, skip it all together).

      The second, the fact that you and wolfm compared one of the models outfit’s to that of the Twelfth Doctor… though I live in the states, I am completely addicted to all things Doctor Who! Yay for Doctor Whovians!

      and by the way wolfm – Nouvellegamine was correct – Peter Capaldi is the 13th doctor, Matt Smith the 12th – sorry, letting my nerd show!

      @nikkihozack leggings and boots actually do seem like they could make them work really well! Thank you!

      Unfortunately, it was my mistake. I don’t really count the “War Doctor” (even though how adorable was John Hurt?!?!) in the list. I enjoyed Smith, but Capaldi has been so fun! It’s great to meet another Who fan :D
