Nothing says nice weather is on the way quite like the white and navy blue! Today we are publishing a pattern collection from burda style magazine’s April 2011 issue. All these styles ooze sophistication and are sewn in classic navy, cream, and white fabrics. This collection will make your warm weather wardrobe complete.

This Wrap Style Dress is so refined. The bodice has an elegant wrap-around look, and a bell-shaped skirt. Under the satin bodice is a jersey shirt for a secure fit.

This tight-fitting Shirt made of stretch double jersey has a high collar and cap sleeves.

Here is a lovely linen-lined Vest with shawl collar, breast pocket, and darts. It makes the perfect warm weather layering piece.

This jersey Striped Dress is both easy to make and wear! The lovely stripes make it fun to dress up and wear out.

This short Blazer will have you saying ships ahoy! It has a boxy shape and is great for layering. We love it worn with these Wide Pants and striped shirt.

We love this Two-Toned Dress. The classic color contrast cream gives this dark blue dress that certain something. The cut with batwing sleeves and yoke seam is also suitable for beginner sewers.

This casual Shirt is oversized and collarless. It looks great tied at center front, to give that effortless look.

This great springtime Tank is made from delicate batiste and soft jersey. And it looks fabulous with this maxi length Flared Godet Skirt

Happy Sewing!

    Argh! I don’t think this collection has many flattering cuts or styles. I don’t think I’ll be making any of these – would love to see some more fitted styles!

    Love the 2 tones dress, but maybe cropped to above the knee. The wide legged pants are, as always, totally amazing. The little knit top is super cute and the wrap 1920s dress is beautiful! Calling all Daisys!

    I like these, but I think I would wear them as maternity not every day, for the most part. That is not an insult.

    LOVE the wide-legged pants. So much better for a pear-shaped woman like myself. Those skinny jeans only look good on teenagers and skinny 20somethings without hips, and I am sick of them anyway! And the blazer looks really cute with those wide pants.

      I can’t tell you how happy I am that someone else recognises that we need – and are more likely to actually suit – wider-legged pants! I had an emergency shopping expedition last week (no time to make!) to buy some jeans and nearly ended up throwing myself on the floor and sobbing like a two-year-old with the frustration of rack-upon-rack on super skinnys and no alternative. If me feeling that way was weird, I now feel justified that maybe there are two of us who are weird. Thank you. xx

    I love them all! I’m not comfortable wearing tight clothes such as the tight blouse, but I love the rest!

    FABULOUS!!!!! Clothes that real women can wear (and sew!). Let’s hope I can find some time to make them all!

    I could have some lounge around clothes and these will definitely do the trick!

    I think that the Tight Fitting Shirt, the Vest, Striped Dress, Casual Shirt, Tank and Flared Godet Skirt photos look nice and comfortable. The patterns have a lot of potential for spring and summer making and wearing. Happy sewing everyone!

    Most of these designs, to me, look oversized. However, I love those white, linen pants.

    Ahh, viva the difference in tastes :-) I loved quite a few from this collection when I got the magazine and made a couple of them straight away. The wrap style dress in particular is so easy to make and looks gorgeous on (in my eyes anyway).

      Do you have a picture of the wrap style dress you made? ‘20s style dresses are supposedly going to be in because of the Great Gatsby film coming out later this year, and I’m debating if I should make one.

      You absolutely should, i think 20s are such a beautiful style. Can’t wait for the Gatsby movie to come out, bet there’ll be loads of inspiration i’ll get from it for new sewing projects. I’ll post some pictures in my studio at the weekend so you can see how it turned out. Basically I used exactly the same colours and combination as the picture on the model as i thought it worked so well but i did the inner vest layer with lace and i used stretch silk jersey fabric.

    BurdaStyle Magazine.. could you please do some patterns that are fitted and have some details on them?

    The vest is nice – everything else is so saggy baggy and makes the model look frumpy and lumpy!
