This week we bring you a sultry new pattern collection from burda style magazine’s July 2013 issue! These little garments are made in soft, sorbet, colors that fit the styles beautifully. Don’t think you can only wear these in the luxury of your own home, you can layer these pieces together to create lingerie-style outfits for outside world to see. Check out these cheeky designs below…

This spagetti strap Camisole can be worn as lingerie, or a tank to be worn outside the home. It has an empire seam under the bust, with gathered triangle pieces stabilized with elastic on the inside seam allowance for extra support.

This seamless Jacket makes a great around the house coverup. It is made in a sheer stretch tulle, so whatever you are wearing underneath will peep through.

Why not make a fifties style Petticoat? This one has classic thight high slits, bows, and contrasting binding.

Here we have a lovely shiny satin Slip with a bust lace insert.

This bustier Bra has delicate little features and lovely color contrasting. We just love the crossover on the front as well. The French style Knickers are high waisted with little bows and binding detail.

This Camisole has an extra layer of scalloped edge lace on the bottom. The top has fine spagetti straps and gathered bust pieces that are enfored with elastic on the inside.

Happy Sewing!

    Times like this I wish I did not have such an ample bosom…oh no, wait, I am a woman!! Pity such flimsy, delicate designs only work on small cup sizes….

      About the complaints… Having curves and saying that those curves are womanly is NOT a dig at less endowd women. Some sensitive people are perceiving negativity where there isn’t any. Bashing slim bodies IS negative, but saying curves are womanly is not the same thing as saying slim bodies aren’t womanly. Creating drama just derails the conversation about the patterns.

      It’s a pity my comment above was taken totally out of context. I have been heavy busted since my early teens, and that too made it difficult for me to purchase standard clothing, for ‘normal’ women. My beautiful, womanly sister is an A cup, and despite us both taking a size 12 in a top, neither of us fit perfectly into shop bought clothes. The fashion runways, and by default, the fashion magazines are filled with spread upon spread of slim, goddess like models, in supposed ‘normal’ clothing. My comment was merely despair that Burda Style also favours unrealistically slim models throughout, and clothing patterns that fit people of that build. Fair play to those of you who are small chested, believe me there were many times when I wished I was, but I feel that all sizes and all shapes should be catered for here, and those of us with bigger busts yet small waist/hip measurements etc are not

    Nice collection.

    Only the gathers don’t seem to work right away across the bust, shouldn’t they just be the centre of each boobie?

    Sigh, I love the look of these, but it would be nice if they would produce some pattern that work for anyone over a “B” cup and not perfectly shaped.

      The same here. Even before attempting to make it, it is clear to me that these designs will look good only on size B and below…

      My thoughts exactly. As a “woman of a certain age”, gravity has not been kind. I think even adding molded cups is not likely to provide sufficient support with those tiny straps. Might work as a nightie though.

      Ha, ha, that is funny laq21479, That was a concern as soon as I was 13. I just wish both and more structured but pretty sexy stuff was being shown. We all do not want to wear lingerie designed for teens. Not that I think these are bad, I would just like some foundations to be added. I think if there were more patterns out there for people to try and use, we would all be happier with your undergarments, and lingerie.
