Here we have a sporty new pattern collection from burda style magazine’s June 2013 issue. The style is cool and sporty beach wear that can also be worn elsewhere. We love the black and white neutrals with pops of neon details. Check out all these totally rad, surfer styles!

This transparent Blouson Jacket has a unique mesh lining and smocked cuffs, great as a windbreaker for those cooler summer days. We love it paired with this orange cut little drawstring Mini-Skirt with patch pocket.

This short beach Mini-Dress with elasticated waist is great for throwing over a bathing suit!

This Net Tank makes whatever you wear underneath shine through! It is easy to sew and cool to wear.

This form-fitting Zipper Dress is super flattering on the body because on the black side panels. The full front zipper adds a great detail and is super edgy!

This short Panel Dress is so edgy, and puts a different spin on summertime dressing. All the different panels makes this dress perfect for color blocking, and since it is made in jersey, it is so comfy and cool to wear.

This short Zip-Up Tank of solid double jersey is an alternative to the classic shirt for summertime, it also makes a great beach top!

This Asymmetric Tunic is lovely and colorful! It has one contrast strap and one batwing sleeve that blows in the summer wind.

These knee-length Cycling Shorts made of solid, elastic jersey are super great for summer activities. The contrast piping gives the shorts a cycling look. And we love the it worn with this matching T-Shirt, it really gives this good a wetsuit style for the beach!

Happy Sewing!

    That made me laugh! Why is “The Surfer Girl” carrying BCD and regulator??! And if she’s not a Surfer Girl but Scuba diver Girl, where is her scuba tank? Who on earth would carry their regulator and BCD but no tank? Why can’t you give us a proper rash vest pattern, instead of this hideous “surfer” t-shirt?

    I’m pretty sure I had that zipper dress back in high school. Not sure I want to wear it again 14 years later. I like the cycling outfit in the last picture, at least that’s what it reminds me of. Also the asymmetrical batwing tunic is kind of cute.

    I love it! I’ve expanded all of the sizes to make it plus size. Thick chicks like beachwear, also!

    Ha ha – did you guys overdose on a big bowl of fruitloops before putting this one together? At least you’ve made me smile!

    Horrendous – when did the designers last go to the beach? 1992? In the dark? On their own? …and I’ve never known anyone to go surfing with a diving regulator, flippers and weight belt! Quiksilver, O’Neil, Ripcurl and the like obviously haven’t done enough to penetrate Burda HQ. Sadness. I expected great things from ‘Surfer Girl’…

    Sorry Burda – I’m seriously not feeling it, it’s got to be said. Not out of place at Muscle Beach Florida but I can’t see many people pulling them off in everyday life! One or two wacky items are ok but ten in one mag?

      I agree Debbie – who needs to pull anything? Esp. w/ home made clothes? – don’t get me wrong- but we’re (home sewers) so out sourced w/ fabric/prints/machines, etc, … and skirt/dress? I’m not getting it.

    Love, love, love!!! I have a hard time finding any patterns for sports wear, and these are great – with the Burda class to them. I will be definitely making a bunch of these. Would love to see a pleated skort pattern too.

    Why don’t you make this collection in larger sizes as well? Are you afraid it will sell?

    Okay, great, I love the idea of making sports clothes, but finding appropriate fabric is a bit hard. Basic cotton knits only take you so far. Does anyone have any suggestions on where we can find fabrics to buy that are good for athletic clothes? Like the kinds of materials used by Under Armour and Everlast? And speaking of which, if Burdastyle is thinking about more ideas for sportswear, I’d love a boxing-inspired collection. Thanks in advance!

    I would try making the t-shirt sleeveless and without the green details – something cool but modest for work. Same goes for the zip-up tank. Just cut the centre panel on the fold and leave out the zip – voila, nice, fitted tank for summer.

    Not sure I could see myself in half of these, although with right fabric the zip dress could look ok. Maybe a combination of faux leather and ponte???

      My feelings exactly! Micheal K did a great one piece that is reminiscent of the zip up tank dress. I’ve been looking for something similar. Thanks Burda!

    I like a few of them, but seriously who wants to look like they are wearing a wetsuit?

      With a sleeve added, the top could be used as a rash shirt to prevent sunburned shoulders. I have serious problems finding properly fitted shirts to make these, and my daughter prefers to wear them with her swimsuit.

    These are great, and a good combination of simple and more advanced, but please if you are doing ’beach" give us at least one swimsuit!
