A beautiful blouse that can be dressed up or down and the cold should detail is perfectly on trend. The pleats of the top are held in place with wide bands.

Every occasion is one for this pencil skirt to show off a great figure. As shown here with the flowing blouse, the true pencil skirt design with the walking slit at the back center seam adds a special elegance.

A traditional and smart pencil skirt, perfectly paired with a blazer for a full feminine suit.

Who says that festive fashion has to be uncomfortable? This dress is absolutely comfy thanks to the overcut shoulders that get an accent from the pronounced ruffle. A gathered band at the hip makes it so incredibly attractive and the extreme comfort comes from sewing it with the soft jersey. A pair of snazzy pumps are a perfect contrast accent. Finish the look with a vibrant red lip color!

The cut is simple and the fabric elevates it to exciting. The short jacket features slightly cropped sleeves that are long enough to pull over a dress and add a visual pop. Of course, it also is a great barrier against cooler temperatures.

An absolute winner to shape a dream figure. The bustier includes a softly draping peplum. Style it in combination with a straight pencil skirt for the illusion of a dress – though giving it an added flexibility. Add a fashion punch with contrast color pumps!

The knotted detail is a cool effect that doesn’t distract and rather pulls the focus toward a narrow waistline. A walking slit takes care of just the right amount of freedom to move about. Additionally, the dress is not just for guests – it is also a great option for a civil ceremony or for an office look at a different time…just make it in white!

A fine example of a bridesmaid dress sewn in a shimmering jacquard. The bustier shapes a narrow bodice and the waist is beautifully drawn in despite the cascading skirt. This look is also great for graduation parties, birthday celebrations and any other reason to party.

Have you waited until the last minute? This A-Line dress with the deep v-neckline is quick and simple to sew. The clean lines of the design are the perfect backdrop for a glamorous fabric! Textured fabrics like brocades and jacquards are great. Simple elegance.

119B-032017-B copy_blog

Perfect for cheerful garden and outdoor weddings. This feminine off the shoulder dress has a smocked neckline. The width can be drawn in with an optional fabric belt. The length is particularly flattering for petite women.

114-032017-B copy_blog

The sharp graphic angles of this collarless blazer with flap pockets gets a softer look when sewn in the luxurious fabric with metallic threads interwoven. For another striking option, sew the middle front panels in a contrast colour fabric.

The look of the wide palazzo trousers sewn in a soft and light silk crêpe is extra breezy and very sexy. They get a touch of masculine detail with deep pleats at the waistband.

    I LOVE the cold-shoulder top with the pleated sleeve flounces! I am also intrigued and interested in the printed blouse underneath the pale pink jacket. The blouse appears to have asymmetric pleating across the torso!

    Is the dress under the Short Jacket also a Burdastyle? I’d love to make that whole outfit. Thanks!
