    The “blouse” is very reminiscent of a 1970’s Betsy Johnson sewing pattern for Butterick, pattern number 4680. While the Betsy Johnson pattern had a jewel neckline and self-ruffle collar, other than those details the “blouses” are pretty much identical. Perhaps the ruched jersey top could have instead been turned into a one piece jumpsuit. It would be very stylish yet comfortable for such activities as yoga, Pilates, or just to lounge around in. Harem pants are nice and also the skirt with the twisted hem. Also could you please offer these “collections” in both regular and plus sizes. As long as you are making a pattern, how much more difficult would it be to keep converting it to also be available to women of all sizes- and for that matter, also in petite sizes as well.

    Aww Burda, what is happening to you? A rather boring collection and too many repeats of patterns (and I recognize a few of these patterns from YEARS ago) – I agree with Red-Lia, if you’re going to use old patterns, mix it up a bit more.

      Hi Nikki! Thanks for reaching out. On average we post about five new collections each month. You can count on a new collection almost every Monday and Thursday, which is quite a lot. As we stated at the very beginning of the blog post, this is a collection from July 2010 that we have updated the instructions for and actually half the collection is brand-new to BurdaStyle.com.

    I think it is a bit overwhelming but that’s just my opinion :)

    When patterns are repeated in a collection (like the twisted skirt and the halter top here), I would expect the featured garments to show something completely new about the pattern: different type of fabric, slightly different pattern details… Sadly I don’t see it here. Sewing some fabric circles onto the front of the halter hardly makes it a new interpretation of a pattern, in my opinion. I expect more from you.
