This new plus size pattern collection from burda style magazine’s December issue is a mix of work and play! From soft nude tones to classic black these designs are a wonderful mix of feminine styles for work, at home, and especially for an evening out. Party business-like, partly party-style, and entirely stylish.

This is the perfect Evening Gown to really impress people. The stretch satin, fitted lines, and deep V-neckline guarantee a sensational fit! A brilliant detail is the maxi-bow which can be tied at either the front or the back.

This Trendy Waistcoat radiates self confidence and creates a lovely figure with its slightly tailored cut. Black petersham ribbon on the front edges gives this design a special touch. These Stretch Trousers makes the perfect partner for the waistcoat. They have a great fit with waist darts and an invisible zipper hidden in the side seam.

This Slinky Top in a soft nude tone is the height of pure elegance. The bias cut makes it cling alluringly to the figure. The key to its appeal is its simplicity.

We love this Draped Dress. It is a lively variation on the little black number, with a deep sweetheart neckline and gathering in the side seam. The cut makes for a dream figure since it delicately hides problem areas.

So soft and classy looking, this Two-Tone Tunic is entirely in jersey. Two colors and a sophisticated cut, with details like forwarded shoulder and side seams, give it a really individual feel. Under the loose tunic shape, figure-hugging satin trousers are the perfect partners.

Why always wear a business jacket to work? This brushed wool Jacket with asymmetrical zip makes for an elegant change, with such unusual details as the sewn-in front section of pleated fabric.

Instead of a blouse, how about slipping into this feminine Satin Shirt? This flared style with its narrow sleeves is cut on the bias for an especially lovely drape.

Brushed wool and nappa leather in a vintage-look Blocked Coat that really catches the eye! With its concealed front closure and the shoulder tabs, this coat makes a really great impression. It has pockets in the horizontal seams and hangs wonderfully on the figure.

Happy Sewing!
