It’s all in the details this summer! The biggest trend that is coming in 2017 is definitely embroidery. We can see the delicate stitching everywhere right now – on street style blogs, in the stores of Zara, H&M and Co. and on DIY blogs. More and more brands start carrying huge collections of embroidered pieces – also because machine embroidery has been developed further during the last couple of years. And while huge brands mostly show flowery patterns, the Pinterest world goes crazy over cacti, insects and eyes which are embroidered on basically any fashion piece out there.

Whether you are rather the classy flower type or going for some more creative motifs – you definitely need to find some fashion pieces which present your embroidery in the best way. That is why we collected our most suitable BurdaStyle patterns and show you examples on what to stitch on to the fabric.

Embroidered garments via Zara, Accessories via Shopbop and H&M

This jeans dress is simply the cutest. Take the cold shoulder blouse pattern, sew it a little longer to make a dress out of it and decorate it with roses and peonies.


We also picked an option for cooler weather: Stitch insects like bugs and bees on this lightweight parka and wear bright accessories to brave cold and rainy days.


Style it rockier by combining black pieces to your embroidered items. Crop tops and asymmetric, ruffled mini skirts are probably the most popular pieces for summer 2017.


This blouse with ruffled sleeves (Plus Size) is just super cute with it’s flower embroidery around the neck. We suggest taking striped, light blue cotton to sew this blouse. Add metallic flats to your outfit and keep it comfy!


Take this boyfriend shirt and style it girly! When it comes to embroidery, more can be more! Don’t stop stitching till there is a whole bunch of flowers on your shirt. Add some metallic accessories and rock your boho-look!


Even for the little ones, there is a huge variety of embroidered garments out there. Start your own projects by using simple and comfortable patterns like this girl’s blouse and shorts. Take simple nude colors for the fabric and choose linen or cotton to make it easier to stitch on!

If you can’t decide which style to make first – don’t worry: We created a kit which includes 15 different sewing patterns that are perfect to embroider on! And we have also included some fantastic and on-trend embroidery design files that you can load onto your machine.
