Ladylike and elegant: These styles from the 01/2019 issue of BurdaStyle magazine with a nod to the 50s are a breath of fresh air. We pulled some fashions from the Burda 50s’ collection which are timeless favorites to put back into rotation with fresh ideas.


The cropped jacket includes a turn-down collar and the edges and sleeve hems are finished with a petersham accent.

The green pleated blouse underneath is also a BurdaStyle pattern! It’s our Pleated Blouse from the 10/2015 issue.


Topstitched petersham sewn onto a fine bouclé punctuates this dress from 1959 with an extra splash of chic.


This blouse with its XL- bow and covered buttons looks just as great for a party outfit as it does when paired with casual denim. To bring it closer into the figure, simply wear it as shown here with a narrow leather belt – or use a kit to cover a belt in the same fabric.


This maxi skirt with the deep box pleats is a look that turns heads today just as it did in 1952. The panel seams in front come together at the top with a tipped look on the pockets and they are closed with covered buttons.


A style that transcends into the sixties: The boxy look with cropped sleeves from 1959 is a classic with clean lines and princess seams that hug the figure softly.


So ladylike…this satin blouse features a shawl-like collar that finishes in a wrap. This style was first shown in 1955. For a striking collar update, cut the collar pattern piece in a contrast color fabric.

    What a stunning collection! It’s a long time since I’ve been excited about a pattern, so with a sad looking closet needing a major refresh, it’s exciting to find my next sewing favourites all in one place! Wonderful…..thank you….

      I have the very same question as this member!

      I’d like to see BurdaStyle connect all looks with links to the other pieces to complete the look. Thanks Mehern59 for asking the question!

      You know what, it is a BurdaStyle pattern!! I read in the fine print of the magazine that the model is wearing #115A 10/2015. I have edited the post to include a link to that pattern :)
