Get stranded in style! This collection is from burda style magazine’s December 2010 issue. The styles are breezy, beautiful, and casually cool. We love all the soft colors made in style with feminine silhouette. Unique features in this collection include fine draping and fabric overlaying to create designs that will whisk you away!

A wardrobe is not complete unless it includes a Cardigan! This one is perfect, it has long sleeves and a snap front closure. It also looks great layered with these Wide Leg Pants. They have a great flowing silhouette, and also fit snug and high on the waist. Pressed front creases give these pants a finished look.

This Wrap Dress is airy and very figure hugging, and has lovely draped sleeves.

This otherwise simple Dress has a twist to it! It features an elasticated waistband and a unique twisted turtle neckband.

This Coat is quick and easy sewing, and results in something that will keep you warm. This knee-length coat with round neckline and broad shoulders gives big impact!

Here we have the lovely Petite Panel Dress. It features long sleeves that gather at the shoulder and waist line. This is a multiple season dress for sure!

This Sheer Top is so unique and lovely to wear! It is made from black sheer tulle, and the overlap of seams create beautiful stylelines.

This short Boxy Jacket has raglan sleeves and a round neck. Great for layering! We love it worn over this sheer Panel Top. It is the same as the above black sheer top but made in white sheer tulle. We love the black one for night time, but with lovely white top would be great for daytime!

This soft Top made of fine cotton tulle with pretty lace looks great with everything.

Happy Sewing!

    Why would you call these patterns new when they are from 2010?

    I love this collection, soft and feminine. I too am wondering why the sleeve on the black sheer top looks finished on one side and not the other but i love them all and would really like to attempt to sew with the sheer fabric without a disaster :)

      it’s not finished, it’s just rolled back a tiny bit on that side.

    Not so impressed. What about a collection exclusively for plus sized people? We’re tired of being overlooked.

    Some of the pieces are interesting. My daughter would porbably like some of them. I could offer advice to the person who needs to size them up.

    lol! So, I guess I’m the only one who daydreams about the British Islands.

    I loved it when Burda did the British Inspired patterns {or at least they looked British to me}. I haven’t seen the British Country theme in a while, but maybe it’ll show up again in the Fall.

    Anyway, I have been coveting those pants forever. I love the external darts.

    The wrap dress is really nice too. I’m a pear shape, so having a lot of draped fabric up top with a smooth skirt is pretty much the only way I can wear a wrap dress. I also love the sleeves. There’s something about this dress that’s sort of retro futuristic 40s & awakens all my Rachel Blade Runner fantasies. In the same issue, this dress was also made in a super 80s print and styled in a “Dynasty”/Bjork way.

    And the panel dress/blouse pattern is lovely. I’d do away with the little center waist seam on all versions except the black sheer top bc it looks out of place to me, esp on the dress.

    I can’t believe that so many people hate these patterns, but that’s why Burda has different themes. That way there’s something for almost everyone.

    I don’t understand why one sleeve on the black sheer top looks bound but the other looks unfinished.

    Sad to see that again the sizes aren’t big enough. Does it not occur to you that people who are tall are not necessarily stick thin?

    Maybe they are already dated, I find the panels in all the clothing a little to severe and serious to be in an “Island” themed collection. Most these dresses could’ve been done in color blocking which would’ve been a collection probably worth seeing.

    Perhaps Manhattan island or British Islands, but it is a stretch to be calling this an island collection when it looks like New York sportswear.

    I think the model could benefit from a pony tail.

    Of all the islands in the world, you choose britain and manhattan.

    I love the mashup of styles and would really enjoying see more of this type of design; however I am so not a puffy sleeve kinda girl.

    Not crazy about this collection. No common thread (pun intended). And I am not a fan of unfinished hems (i.e. note the sleeves on the black sheer top: what to do when you’ve worn it a few times and the unfinished/unhemmed edges begin to fray?)

    Fugly. They are a mishmash of different styles thrown together to make one overall waste of material. It’s as ugly as anything that came out of the 70’s
