Dreamy against the skin and incredibly breezy for hot days: Linen is the on-trend fabric of the season. We celebrate it with clean cuts and lots of volume in this collection from the 06/2018 issue of BurdaStyle magazine.

This unlined summer skirt is sewn with linen and truly a nod to the feminine skirts of the 50s. The pointed yoke with tucks lays snug against the hipline and the full-length buttoning placket lets you adjust how much leg to show.


In combination with the waistcoat, these culottes with the flared hems is the ideal summer outfit for the office. Relax it up a bit by pairing the look with a T-shirt, denim jacket and sneakers.


The special touches for this tunic dress are the balloon sleeves and the sewn-on ruffles that accent the side panels. The slit at the generously gathered and rounded neckline is smoothed with a band and pulled together with cording. If you would like to have a streamlined look, sew this model in a white linen.


You can wear this style with the mini side hem slits as a dress or as a long blouse over trousers. The tucks along the front inset panel are especially rich against the clean lines of the look.


Marvellously airy and light. This jumpsuit features straight-line leg panels, a wide band to outline the neckline and panel seams in the front and back. Practical: slant pockets along the side seams.


The flowing drape of this sophisticated crêpe weave makes the relaxed waistcoat a versatile choice for holidays as well as for a hot day in the city. The sleeve bands follow the silhouette and the tying belt draws it in at the waistline. This style is featured in the sewing course within the sewing supplement.


Shine when you pull on this dramatically draping and flowing á la-greek-goddess-Helen dress with the raised waistline. Sewn in a viscose jersey, it is the perfect dress for special summer evenings.


This is the perfect combination of a cool biker jacket and a breezy summer blazer. The collarless style with the cropped raglan sleeves is fully lined, though it is sewn with a mixed weave fabric that will stay comfortable even as temperatures rise at the office. The asymmetric zipper and the snaps are congruent to the edgy and sharp lines.


These culottes with the faux wrap effect are sewn with a sand-colour cotton in ticking stripe finish. The clasp is a cut-on tab with three snaps. A wonderfully relaxed alternative to a skirt.


A great look with the linen shirt: relaxed menswear trousers with tapered legs, a buttoning placket and slant pockets.


The unadorned linen shirt includes forward-placed shoulder seams, patch pockets in front and horn buttons for a look that isn’t just trendy – it is also easy-care to wash and a great choice for summer. For those who wish to update it to a classic or business shirt style, simply sew it in a poplin and update the buttons to something small. It also is a cool option as a bowling shirt when sewn with a printed cotton.

    Nice collection. The only one I don’t like is the waistcoat and big flare pants/culottes – a little too 70s not in a good way. The linen tunic, and even the short striped culottes/skort are really cute though.

    Very elegant styles that’s for sure. Still no plus sizes. I love linen. Awwh, if only I had a man that would wear linen!
