Whether the schedule calls for a business meeting or for yoga, these sporty and elegant styles from the 01/2019 issue of BurdaStyle magazine in sizes 44 – 52 will have you ready to go.


This long blouse sewn with a brilliant white poplin is simply perfect. Timeless classic details like the turn-down collar and a covered button placket are background to pleats along the bodice that add dimension on top and a lovely roomy cascade on bottom.


This look shapes the figure and is also comfortable. The lower hem ends at an Italian length. Because it is lined, hosiery can easily be worn underneath. A cool detail: Fabric bands are sewn in as flounces near the sleeve ends.



How do you make a T-shirt ultra-feminine? Just like this style with a sophisticated drape element! Extra asymmetric panels for the front and back are secured at the top and side and include some accent pleats.

The sporty and elegant trend really comes through with this jacket sewn in a glamorous satin. The waistline casing gives a touch of accent along the fabric, while the relaxed cut makes it a sleek choice to wear over evening outfits for fuss-free wear.


Style and comfort don’t need to be opposites. These leisure bottoms include a “skirt panel” that can be adjusted to gather on the sides so you can choose how you wear it.


This long blouse style with the mini pleats and classic cuff sleeves cascades along the figure with a soft drape. Also, the cut works beautifully as a shirt dress – simply lengthen it by as much as you would like.


Here is the cool alternative to the business blazer. This lined parka features large patch pockets and gets some feminine shaping from the casings at the waist and at the sleeve hems. Sew it now and be ready for spring!
