A retro vibe with modern details. These ultra-feminine styles from the 11/2018 issue of BurdaStyle magazine highlight feminine curves with an eye toward fashion that is equally elegant for the office, in the city and an evening out.


This style is fit along the bodice for a splendid decolleté. This jersey long style shirt also features a gather along one side. The cut is one that works perfectly as a dress – simply lengthen the pattern piece by the additional length before cutting it out.


This tunic showcases an extra love of details. The neckline slit includes a mini button closure – wear it buttoned or let it drape open for decolleté, and the cuffs are finished with sweet bands to tie into bows.


An office appointment or an evening out on the calendar? This incredible style sewn with a floral print wool is the one to reach for. The sophisticated design with panels and pleats that beautifully intermix, follows and shapes the figure. A walking slit in back makes sure there is plenty of room for comfortably getting around.


Fashionistas are all over the print mix this season – and this flared to the hem dress with romantic flounces to accent the sleeve hems and neckline is the perfect display. We chose a finished border print fabric, though you can add your own hem band keeping in mind to blend the color and motif design for a coordinated look.


A poplin sewn in the most feminine way. This wrap blouse includes a delicate ruffle to trim the neckline. The long length gives full coverage in back and enough extra to drape playfully around the figure.


A perfectly ladylike LBD with a stunning wrap effect. Slightly cropped sleeves and a deep V-neckline also stretch the visual lines of the figure.


An elegant coat that is also warm. This double breasted style includes a tying belt and gets a classic nod with the fine wool fabric. The caped collar is a beautiful touch. The sophisticated wrap drapes over the shoulders for a very flattering finish.
