We want to whisk you away to the French country side in this new vintage-inspired pattern collection from burda style magazine’s November 2010 issue. These garments are rich in color and look expensive. The elegant designs are made in luxurious fabrics such as velvet, taffeta, sequins and even mohair. What we love most about this collection is the nod to the 1920s, with drop waist silhouettes and vintage styling. Hope you enjoy!

This average wrap Dress is brought to life from the great fabric mix it is sewn in. It features long sleeves and a flattering dropped waistline that gives you the ability to Charleston the night away!

This Bouclé Jacket features lovely trimming from three rows of zipper tape. It has great structure and is sure to add an interesting touch to any outfit.

We absolutely love this Asymmetric Dress embroidered with sequins. The asymmetrical cut and one shoulder give it that special touch.

With this Wrap Dress you will be the eye-catcher of the evening. We love how this elegant satin wrap dress has long sleeves, wide cuffs and a dropped waistline.

In this green silk velvet Dress with transparent chiffon yoke you will always arrive looking stunning! It has an elastic band at the waist and two inseam pockets on the sides.

The One Shoulder Top has an asymmetrical shoulder line and is made from beautiful jacquard taffeta. We love it paired with the intricate Draped Skirt. This lovingly detailed skirt is very figure-hugging and features beautiful jumbo pleated drapes on one side, that give the skirt a very elegant touch.

This fabulous Two-Tone Coat is sure a looker, and since it’s made from mohair, it’s extra warm. This coat also offers a lovely sequin border that makes this coat perfect for evening wear.

Happy Sewing!

    I absolutely love these! They are all gorgeous, but my favorite has to be the asymmetric dress- stunning! And the fabric used is beautiful.

    All stunning. wish I had a better look of the jacket. Is the border trim a print fabric or a fabric with lots of texture and color. Love it. Aside from the jacket I like the coat and the draped skirt.

    Beautiful! I love the green velvet dress. My husband and I are vacationing in Paris this spring, and I think that I’ll make a version of that dress for a romantic night out. Thank you, Burdastyle!

    I love the styling-the 1920s and the orient express being one of my favorite themes. But why was is not shot in a French station instead?

    This is not the French countryside, by the way, but a German railwaymuseum.

    awww, this was one of my favorite set of patterns. The original pattern set was inspired by the 1920s and the Orient Express. I did some research and found that the Orient Express still runs and wrote a blog post about it. So fun!

    The two-tone coat is stunning, and the draped skirt is amazing. It looks like a flower. The boucle jacket with the zipper trim is a classic updated in an an exciting way, and the green wrap dress made with both ruffled fabric and sequined fabric is just amazing.

      I love the whole 70s glam interpretation of the 20s, 30s, and 40s- movies like Orient Express are favorites. It’s definitely on my bucket list too- but after the Swedish Ice Hotel!

      I like the illusion neck dress, but I’m not a fan of elastic gathered waists, so I’d have to convert it a darted skirt. I don’t think I’d keep the pockets either.
      And the color of that dress is one of my favorites.

      This issue also had a really pretty craft section that went with these patterns. It was basically making felted, jeweled bib necklace or a headband. It was a lot prettier than it sounds.

    I actually have this magazine at home, but was never really interested in these patterns. But now that I see them again I can see the potential in some of them. I like the one shoulder top, although if a make it I will leave out the little fabric knot and just make it with nice pleats or shirring (depending on the fabric). Also, I really like the green velvet dress. Again, I will probably make it out of a nice jersey (printed or not), because I really don’t like the green velvet. But I like the detail in the pattern with the transparent chiffon yoke… this is something that you see a lot in the fashion designs nowadays.

    I think it’s good that Burdastyle takes out these older issues and presents them again.
