Sexy cut outs at the shoulders of this dress can be adjusted easily with the upper and lower casings. Elastic at the waistline gives the silhouette some definition and eliminates the need for a zipper.


This short jacket has a narrow cut and is fully lined for a perfect summer look sewn with a stately summer bouclé. A fringed trim is topstitched along the 7/8-raglan sleeve hems for a look of an exposed edge.


This cropped kaftan style blouse is sewn with a colourful palm tree print to put you right into the holiday spirit. Sophisticated detail: the plastron band outlined with tucks.


This one is worth a second look. A big reason is that a close inspection reveals the repeating pattern of mini parrots on this fantastic print.


This glamorous sequin top with over-cut shoulders works well for daytime with a pair of cargo trousers and for the evening with an elegant skirt. A beautiful detail: A cutout in back.


The asymmetric striped top has an elaborate drape at the front bodice. The mini peplum drops in pleats from the upper bodice for a look that flatters the figure.


Sexy and charming at the same time. The bodysuit is sewn with a jersey and includes knotted details, 3/4-sleeves and a delicate lace trim at the lower hems. The top stays in place simply with the lower snaps.


A classic style of pleated shorts with slanted pockets is sewn with the same fabric as the jacket – and includes the fringe detail. Steamline the look with a white blouse.


Summer is an open book full of possibilities – just like these culottes ready for adventure with the faux wrap look and practical slant pocket openings.


The halter neckline adds a sporty-elegant accent to this sheath dress style. The neck bands extend from the horizontal mid-section panel and come together in back. The triangular panel elements at the bodice shape a visual narrowness at the waist, as well.


The waistline is a tad high, the skirt is cut in an A-line cascade and the sophisticated sleeve detail combine to give special recognition to the skater style dress sure to showcase the silhouette. Skimming just past the knees, it can also be a good choice for the office.

    Nice little collection. I like the bodysuit and it would be nice if there are more of them in future issues. The tunic is a nice variation and the dress bodices are really interesting. The tweed/boucle set is so cute. I can’t make every one of them, but they will be terrific for someone. I really don’t get the negativity in the comments—Burda did a great job on this group.

    Yet another group of patterns without even one plus size. The skater dress would look beautiful in a plus size.

    Beautiful designs, just can’t see them for the fabric choices. And I’ve said it before, you could make a killing on a TALL magazine!

    What a shame, only smaller ladies have a summer!

      Yeah- we get to spend the summer inside wearing black & white. At least we get long sleeves to protect us from the air conditioning.

    Perhaps before setting up the model, the stylist could think about what they’re trying to show in the photo. What is the point of all the detailing in a dress being hidden behind a giant bar of shadow in the last two photos. Thank goodness for the other pictures!
