Selection: World Cotton Day
This October 7th is World Cotton Day, which is a special occasion to celebrate this versatile fabric we love wearing throughout the year. Whether it's to keep us warm during cold winter days or to stay cool on hot summer days, cotton is a go-to choice of fabric. Easy to sew, it's a beloved material by sewers of all skill levels who choose it for its durability, absorbency, resilience, and comfort.
To celebrate this versatile fabric for a day, our editorial team has prepared a selection of 12 cotton pieces, all tailored to follow the trends of this autumn. Let yourself be captivated by this selection and find inspiration to create your future looks!
Cotton Blouse no. 102 | Burda Style 06/22
Romantic, chic, and elegant, this blouse is perfect in every way and boasts some alluring features. The V-neckline enhances your bust, but if you find it too plunging, you can alter the neckline when preparing the pattern. You can also wear a tank top underneath to conceal the neckline and enjoy the autumn weather without getting cold. The sleeves are delicately gathered at the shoulders and cuffs, adding a charming puffiness that is quite delightful.
Cotton Top no. 118 | Burda Style 05/22
For this autumn, we bid farewell to dull colors and welcome vibrant or pastel hues to savor a few more moments of the brightness of past summer days. With this mustard yellow top, you're guaranteed to reminisce about summer during the autumn chill without the risk of getting cold while strolling around. What we love about this design is the flattering cut, the invisible zipper closure in the back, the boat neckline, and the fact that it's so easy to make!
Cotton Trousers no. 107 | Burda Style 10/22
We love wearing pants because they are elegant and comfortable, but sometimes they can be impractical due to either lacking pockets or having pockets that are not spacious enough for what we want to carry. With these pants, say goodbye to that problem and enjoy the patch pockets that can be sewn onto this design. In addition to this significant detail, these attractive pants align with this year's trend of sewing clothing with floral or botanical prints. So, you can enjoy the autumnal charm with style!
Cotton Trousers no. 121|Burda Style 09/20
We're falling for cargo pants and their unique shape that suits all body types! Here are some sewing details about this beautiful model: a topstitched belt with belt loops, a wide pleat, and large flap pockets positioned at knee level. Paired with a leather jacket and stylish boots, the cargo look gives you a very trendy rock-inspired style.
Cotton Skirt no. 104 | Burda Style 11/21
Autumn doesn't mean skirts have to go back in the closet, quite the opposite! With a pair of tights, a sweater, and a blazer, this straight skirt is divine! To showcase your legs, don't hesitate to unbutton one or two buttons. Perfect, it will enhance all silhouettes, even the smaller sizes, thanks to the wide back panel.
Cotton Mini Skirt no. 116 | Burda Style 10/22
Get ready to dive back into the excitement of 1960s fashion! This miniskirt is stylish and bold, just like the fashion of the sixties, and that's why we recommend sewing it. What we love about this design is the straight cut, the wide buckle belt, and the geometric patterns that are in style this season!
Cotton Skirt no. 105 | Burda Style 12/20
For a chic autumn, this skirt is the absolute must-have piece! With a pencil cut, this model stands out with its stunning print in vibrant colors and its large bow at the front, making it unique and beautiful.
Cotton Dress no. 113 | Burda Style 6/21
This sumptuous dress is perfect for an autumn filled with glamour or to anticipate the year-end festivities. With its midi length, draping at the neckline, and sequins, this piece exudes unparalleled elegance!
Cotton Dress no. 119 | Burda Style 09/22
For this autumn, graphic prints are one of the trends not to be missed! With this stunning dress in a colorful print, you're sure to be at the forefront of fashion. The princess seams and perfectly placed darts will enhance your silhouette, highlighting your figure.
Cotton Dress no. 105 | Burda Style 04/22
This fitted dress with wide straps captivates us with its cut, length, vintage floral pattern, and button placket that runs the full length. Another advantage that makes us want to sew this design? You can wear it all year round, no matter the season or weather! With a turtleneck and tights in the autumn or with a blouse with puffed sleeves in the summer, this dress won't stay in the back of your closet for long!
In Rainy Weather
Cotton Coat no. 104 | Burda Style 09/21
If there's one coat you must have in your wardrobe, it's the trench! Elegant and timeless, this coat is a staple in every autumn/winter collection. While it's a piece that everyone has, very few people own this model with a tone-on-tone floral pattern, which is on-trend this year. Other details enhance this trench to make it even more exceptional, such as the large collar, the epaulettes, and the belt loops.
Cotton Anorak no. 128 | Burda Style 08/22
If you're not a fan of the trench coat but still want to sew yourself a rain-repellant garment, we recommend the anorak. Also a must-have, the anorak will easily find its place among your autumn looks. Its practicality doesn't stop it from being stylish, as shown by its many appreciable details, such as the stand-up collar, the metal zipper to adjust the collar as you like, and the spacious pockets. With it, you're sure to stay dry in rainy weather!
