Chic Jersey Tops

Convinced jersey is only for snug and cuddly clothes? Think again! Here, the rather light viscose jersey used for this delicate blouse has such a soft and graceful drape. The discrete and elegant detail at the upper back of the blouse is also an element we adore.

The dainty peplum at the waistline is without a doubt a marvelous addition to this model. Furthermore, the square neckline is sure to highlight your bust, neck, and lovely collarbones. The short sleeves paired with the pretty pearl-white fabric is a mark of exquisite chic. A stiff, high-quality jersey with less drape will ensure the structure of this piece.

So Simple !

Oversized cuts are truly all the rage. This piece is super easy to sew since it is simply made up of a front and back piece. The attached sleeves are slightly flared and show off a beautiful lace trim accent for a sophisticated finish! A tip: use a high-quality jersey for this model to guarantee a defined fit.

This top is a basic with classic raglan sleeves so flattering for shoulders. Jersey is just the fabric you will need for stylish tops like these because it’s not prone to wrinkling and is always very comfortable. An organic cotton or bamboo jersey are perfect for this piece thanks to their light and airy feel and gorgeous, easy drape. The braided detail at the neck is also quite unique and feminine.

Tunic & Jumpsuit

Tunics are a great alternative for anyone looking to stray from standard tops or dresses. This model’s cut is particularly pleasant due to its relaxed fit that will surely make you feel free. And a light jersey will add to the casual, summery air of this piece.

Trendy Dresses

This maxi dress most definitely leaves an impression with its pretty floral pattern that simply radiates femininity! The model is for sizes 44 to 52 and shows off all your very best assets. First, the deep V-neck is truly enchanting. Plus, the ties at the back allow you to decide how much you would like to highlight your waist while adding gorgeous volume to the skirt.

Jungle fever! This square-neck dress is synonymous with charm. The straight cut paired with the jersey highlights your figure without being too tight. For the best fit, use a cotton jersey that is neither too thick nor has too much stretch.

Stepping into Summer

Summer is just around the corner, so light jerseys made from viscose, bamboo, or cotton would be perfect for breezy dresses like this off-the-shoulder model. It is the definition of the sun, summer, and vacation with its pretty and cheerful pattern. The large panel creates an extra swish to the skirt. And if you want to give off an even fresher vibe with this dress, feel free to shorten the sleeves to your preference.

As a top or dress in versions both short and long, this Burda Easy model allows you with one pattern to create three radiant variations to guarantee the best moments all throughout summer. The halter neck shows off an open back that is currently all the trend, and the little belt allows you to highlight your waistline as you wish. Opt for a light and flowy jersey fabric for ideal wear. What’s more, this model is so easy to sew!

For Every Occasion!

Inspired by the styles associated with a more masculine wardrobe, this polo dress comes with a small placket and smart collar. A little bit of sporty, a little bit of chic, the model is timeless thanks to its fun play on colors. Select a thicker and slightly stretchy jersey for your dress. Milano, cotton, or even a fleece for winter guarantee a wonderfully structured fit.

This airy jersey with a delicate shimmer is perfect for this very trendy model! Composed of a top and skirt that are connected at the waist, the dress shows of a fun, flowy midi skirt, a fitted bodice with a narrow collar, and lovely three-quarter-length sleeves. If you would like a drape similar to the one in this photo, choose to cut your dress on the bias.

Skirts

To the left:

There’s no doubt about it: a skirt in jersey is just marvelous! This charming model can be made as a mini skirt or lengthened to your taste. Its form-fitting cut is ultra-flattering because of the vertical gathers that create dainty darts along the front. What’s more? This piece is from Burda Easy, making it super simple to sew!

Incredible! The slightly flared cut of this skirt comes together with the pentagon-shaped yoke to fashion a model that gives off a particularly cool air. It is best to use a stretchier jersey that is not too thin. Play with different colors and textures for your jersey knits for a result that is the epitome of stylish, sporty chic. For clean edges, opt for a special twin needle for jersey with this model.

Trousers

This piece incarnates modernity! The relaxed, straight cut marries perfectly with the delicate pastel pink. Plus, these trousers are cropped to lengthen the legs and show off a bit of ankle. If you use a stiffer jersey, you will create a nice finish and avoid (most) creases. And just think about how amazing you will feel once you are wearing this model!

These trousers are the perfect blend of sport and elegance, and they count among our favorite wardrobe pieces for the past few years! Pair the pants with a stylish top or blazer to give off a casual chic style. This cut goes so well with a thicker jersey or fleece and radiates an allure of classiness and femininity. And a bonus: you won't forgo comfort with these pants, thanks to their cozy elastic at the waist! Models are for sizes 44-52.
