We want to share this new Nice and Bright pattern collection with you! This collection is all about bright colors combined with shades of nude that are made in clean and uncluttered styles.

These gleaming patterns will sure brighten up your wardrobe. This collection provides you chic design that will polish up your look, and give you the confidence you need to succeed. Make a power suit in blue, or sew up an orange pencil skirt to brighten your day. These styles and colors will whisk you away into fall with transitional styles and fabrics.

You’ll be jumping for joy in this comfortable, slightly flared orange Mini Skirt . It has extra large bellows pockets that are perky and practical. Make a matching blazer in the same fabric for a power suit great for the office.

Audrey Hepburn would have loved this Swing Dress ! From the small cap sleeves to the gathered skirt, this graceful classic will flatter every woman. Set-in side panels shape a lovely bust, and wearing a narrow belt gives additional waist emphasis.

This Double Breasted Cape cannot by ignored. Next to the color, eye-catching details include decorative stitching on the shoulder pieces, piping on arm slits, and a double breasted front closure. Pair over any outfit for a stylish pop of color that will be sure to keep you cozy.

This suit is a shining example of casual chic. The long shawl collar and sophisticated section seams of the Jacket might have been inspired by a waiter’s waistcoat. We love it paired here with the Creased Trousers . These trousers are casually chic with their stitched creases and slender silhouette. We especially love the small hem slits that allow glimpses of your favorite shoes.

This is the very feminine jersey Angled Ruffle Top that narrows over the hips and has soft appeal. We love the angled ruffle, lovely bateau neckline, and raglan sleeves that are all flattering details on this top.

Here is a Wool Long Coat that will lift your spirits because the straight, causal cut gives you wonderful wearing freedom. We love it made in a cheerful color to brighten up any outfit!

This is one of our favorite looks! The bright Peplum Top that has a beautifully draped peplum that makes a great impression and trims your waist. We love it paired with this knee length Pencil Skirt in the same fabric. It is a classic style with no waistband, making it a perfect match to all your tops.

Here is the Tie Skirt that really packs a punch of color! We love the tie belt in the same fabric, and think it adds a dressy touch. This simple skirt has section seams and no waistband, making it a quick and easy sewing project.

This Long Sleeve Seamed Dress is a form fitting dress that every woman needs! We love how the waist darts shape the waist and conjure up a dream figure. A short walking slit gives the dress wearing ease and small tucks draw the eye to the flattering round neckline. Wear your favorite stilettos to magnify this style.

This new pattern collection is all around fun and clean-cut. These edgy designs will boost your confidence and look great sewn in bright structured wool blends. For an easy weekend project try sewing the Pencil Skirt or the Angled Ruffle Top . if you want a challenge and feel like getting a head start on your fall wardrobe try making the gorgeous Double Breasted Cape or the Wool Long Coat .

Happy Sewing and have a Nice and Bright day !

    I really like this spread! The colors of the fabric make it really easy to see the lines of the garments. I enjoy the red dress, blue suit, and yellow peplum skirt/shirt set. I’m really glad to see a spread with some bright colors!

    Any suggestions for where to find these types of fabrics in similar colors? I’ve been having a terrible time online and I’ve hit up all the big ones : fabric.com, fashionfabricsclub, mood, etc.

    Love the yellow peplum suit. It inspired me to track down my first BurdaStyle issue, and I can’t wait to make it.

    The angled ruffle top is a must have for me and is at the top of my list to make. Not quite sure what fabric to use however. Is it possible they used a single knit with a raw edge for the ruffles? Any ideas anyone??

    All in all great styles this go around. Wish I had the figure to wear most of them.

      I was wondering the same thing and had a look at the instructions. Looks like you’re right about the fabric and the raw edge, although it doesn’t specify what kind of jersey to use, single knit would have the nice drape required for the ruffles. Hope you have fun with it!
