New Year’s is fast approaching, and the pressure is on to find the perfect outfit. Dazzle your fellow party-goers this season and create a sequined masterpiece! We’ve got sparkling styles for every fashionista in the premiere Winter 2014 issue of BurdaStyle US magazine.

Brilliant golds and metallics make for perfect party attire. You’ll fall in love with our sequined mini skirt and sequined sleeveless top. They’re both super easy to sew, and we’ve included tons of styling tips for you to dress them down and wear them all year long beyond the party season.

Don’t worry if sequins aren’t your thing, we still have plenty of ways for you to shine. You’ve got to see the gorgeous golden dress on our model on page 69 — we love the elegant cut and flattering waist gathers. Perfect for a Christmas soiree!

Not feeling a dress this year? Try creating one of our jackets in a shimmering brocade or textured, subtle metallic. Pair the jacket with chic trousers and heels for a classy, sophisticated look.

We’ve put 20 free full-size patterns right in the pages of the magazine, so you’re sure to stumble across the perfect holiday outfit! We know, you want to get straight to sewing. But be sure to check out all of our great articles, DIY pages, and sizing and pattern tips to ensure your garment (and your entire outfit) ends up looking fabulous!

    I subscribed because I’m a regular subscriber to the European BurdaStyle and a big fan. I was very disappointed to recognize many repeated patterns from previous european Burdastyle issues! Not happy at all and definitely won’t renew.

    Is this issue going to be a lot like the first one, with repeats of Burda patterns already published in the European version and online? It looks like the patterns shown in the photos above are repeats, but I’d be interested if there was something new…
