This collection from the 09/2017 issue of BurdaStyle magazine features feminine styles in candy colors inspired by the elegance of the early 60s to let you shine even on the rainiest of days. In both sizes 34 – 44 and 44 – 52!


Wear it with a skirt, or jeans, or even over a dress! The snuggly top with the V-neckline and raglan sleeves upgrades the style factor for every outfit. Zippers sewn into the side seams let you regulate the hem width to your preference.


The boxy jacket is a clean cut with many interesting details like the flap pockets, a banded hem with loops to pull the belt through, and adjustable tabs on the sleeves. The colour contrast of the buttons and buckles are used as accent points, as well.


A perfect balance between coolness and femininity can be found in this narrow skirt sewn with a metallic shimmering gabardine. The waistband seams tuck mini ruffles into the look that give the illusion of flap pockets.


This fitted dress with the overlapping and decorated bands in front gets support from darts and a stretch crêpe fabric so that it not only shapes the figure beautifully, it also gets a couture look.


Whether business reigns or a party is on the agenda – this blouse is one that is ready and flexible with its removable sequin collar. The flared cuffs and the front slit with flounce accent are closed with fine buttons.


Wide sleeves that cascade from the box pleat at the sleep cap, an integrated neckline design, welt pockets, an adjustable tab in back…this swinging cropped jacket with a cape look doesn’t spare the fascinating details. It closes quite simply with a large snap.


This is a fun style that has you ready to dance and feel great. The halter neckline band tapers in back to a tip and gets decorated on the right and left with two sweet bows. A wide skirt has lots of swing. Sew it in a jewel tone taffeta for a look that is perfect for an evening at the theater or opera and be prepared to have all eyes on you.


Stylish XL buttons decorate the wide waistband of these close-fitting trousers with the roll hem. For a classic style, combine the trousers with a black turtleneck and ballerinas à la Audrey Hepburn.


The sexy vibe for this body-shaping dress is a result of the faux wrap and asymmetric inlaid pleats along the bodice. The deep neckline lays flat with wide straps. Bonus: they make it possible to wear a brassiere underneath!


This shirt is a sharp look that is designed to have the essence of a backward draping cape. The neckline is a round folding collar and subtle bands hem the sleeves. For more of a layered style, wear it with a pair of skinny jeans.


The sparkling sequin yoke is a statement look that is more beautiful than any collar necklace. It extends across the front, over the flounce sleeves and the back. A box pleat in front looks beautiful while also adding room to move easily.


Crystals are sewn-on by hand to add a bit of bling to catch the eye right away on this top. The accent colors highlight the exaggerated yoke that also features the box pleat and sleeve flounces. Another option is to use pre-made iron-on designs.


A modern coat with horizontal panel seams and welt pockets is a true fashion favourite that works well over every outfit thanks to its generous silhouette. The double face fabric lets the roll-up sleeve and the tying belt add a splash of color.

    Someone hates plus size women. These are seriously unflattering. No thought let alone design was given, they have a sack that doesn’t hang well even after it’s been styled. They needed to hide them in a collection with some decent standard size clothes to hide the fact that no one would ever think of buying them. This actually makes me angry.

    Sorry, but that green tent top is a crime against femininity.

    Love em all! I think there is a plenty of potential in the slopers for changes. Not all full figures are shaped the same and not all full figured women want things that are shaped close to the body. Thank you Burda for providing for some diversity in styling for those who may want a pattern that drapes the figure. Part of dressing sometimes mean drawing less attention to some areas. Though I tend to prefer things with more shape and detail, I’ve met plenty of women who are not comfortable with that. Love to see differnt styling choices and sizes in the same shoot.

    I think there are some great patterns here and surprisingly I like the pastel color palette. But I don’t understand why you lump regular and plus size patterns in a bundle. I don’t want to pay for plus size patterns that I will never use and I doubt that the plus size girls want the others.

    Awful. Plus size deserve more than flour sacks. These clothes make her look twice the size than she actually is…. that coat and pale green shirt are hideous.

    I’m not plus size, myself, but I think you could have done better by the plus size girls here. There’s no reason why that blue skirt or the blue boxy jacket couldn’t be upsized and still be flattering, or for that matter the coat in the double-face fabric could be done in regular sizes. I know plus size patterns are more challenging given the variety of body shapes in plus size women, and you’re not going to be able to please everyone with every single thing, but they deserve better than shapeless sacks.

    Plus size green shirt does NOT have a “sharp” look. It’s very ugly and doesn’t even seem to drape correctly on the model. I agree with comments on plus size styles.

    We curvy girls still want cute fitted clothes. SAYING you offer them in plus sizes but then only offering the shapeless stuff in our sizes even more annoying than not offering them at all. A key reason that I sew is so that I CAN have cute stuff, as opposed to the potato sacks on offer in stores. I suspect your curvy girl demographic is much bigger than you think, for exactly that reason.

    I was so excited that they made a size inclusive collection until i realized all the cute stuff was in straight sizes and just baggy thing for plus. So sad. I would’ve bought everything if it was in plus size

    I really want the tee paired with the ruffle-at-skirt pattern. Do you have a similar pattern?

    I love seeing a collection from Burda that represents more body types! My only gripe is that I wish every pattern included all sizes instead of having a few for 34-44 and a few for 44-52. I’d love to make that jacket AND I’d love to make that coat. I feel like I always have to grade down or up for patterns. Ah well. Can’t have it all, I guess.
