    I’m not sure if the visitors to this site know the reason why there are repeats is bc these are from the monthly magazine. In each issue there’s 4 standard size collections, 1 kids, and 1 plus. In the standard collections there are a lot of repeats between the collections bc they’re made in different fabrics. Sometimes there are sleeve variations or other details. I have always like that about Burda bc there are so many times I’ve seen a pattern and thought, “Ehhhh,” and then seen it in a different fabric and fallen in love. Summer for Burda is usually a lot of easy makes and I frequently give those issues a pass, but I was pretty sad to find that 2014/15 Fall/Winter was full of a lot of very plain designs. I’m starting to think it’s just me and that I just like “over designed” patterns. But in order for me to bother making something it needs to have at least the option of something like an interesting sleeve or a pretty neckline. I’m just never going to make tank tops or elastic waist dirndl skirts :/ It’s not just Burda. I haven’t purchased a pattern from either an Indie company or the Big 4 this year.

    Kristin, after 5 years of subscribing to Burda magazine I give! I find that most of the patterns are repeats. If I see something like that’s a different story. Before I download another pattern that doesn’t quite assemble perfectly, I’d rather shoot myself in the head first!

    I thought the same thing Kirstin! They are also part of the cocktail collection.

    My experience with a loose top the is deep-V-necked at both front and back is that it falls off. That jade tank top paired with the floral skirt is very insecure looking. Would be interested to see what happens when someone sews it.

      The problem with this as you observe is that without shoulders and a bust this style will fall off you. And the issue with a bust is that this look is not flattering as it makes your bust look bigger and not in a good way. This top is cut to sit at the outside of the shoulder and that is never an easy look to wear in this instance style has won out practicality.

    I agree with Kirstin Bozyk – I am more excited about the fabrics :) I have a rule for purchasing a copy of BurdaStyle magazine, if I like at least 2 patterns that I absolutely have to have then I purchase that copy – this year I haven’t purchased a single one!! the patterns have become very very basic :( I keep waiting for the next issue to hopefully purchase.

      If you want a preview, you can see it on the German website: http://www.burdastyle.de/archiv/aktuelle-heftvorschau/
      Actually, I was disappointed again. I also didn’t buy a single copy this year so far.

      Same here. And when they release the digital version of their patterns from a few years ago I realize that I really just like those so much better. :/

    We’ve seen several of these patterns in the last collection. Nothing extraordinarily new or exciting. Not impressed.
