I am excited to be exploring some of my favorite patterns from the Burda style Spring/Summer collection. As some of you may know, I enjoy taking trips to Joann's, often with a cappucino in hand, perusing the various pattern catalogs. It is heavenly...I look at patterns, and dream about what to create next. I study the line drawings, and try to decide which details I like, and which ones I will omit.
So, come along and dream with me as I take a look at the newest patterns Burda is offering:
This first pattern reminds me of a wrap dress. I love the wraparound top, and how it creates the cinching of the waist. View A is my favorite, but I do appreciate the flowiness of the one in View B.
I think the dress pictured above is so cute! The Peter Pan collar, with a more vintage feel is perfect for summer!
Moving on to another dress, this one is neat because of the twist on the bodice. I have seen tops with a twist, and I think this translates nicely to a fun summer dress.
This is another top I love!! I mean, I just love it! I love the billowy shape with the V-neck slit, and the length that hits just at the hips. It seems like it would be a nice staple. The dress is nice also.
Burda 7066 is yet another staple. Do you like staples? I do! I don't always have to buy patterns with a million different features. Sometimes it's nice to find a tried and true gem that can translate into wearable pieces in my wardrobe instead.
Here is another style I like, but my only concern is the wrap around the neck. I'm not sure if that would be a flattering look for me.
Switching gears a bit, I also saw a few neat patterns for menswear. If my husband would let me (he's a real stickler when it comes to his business attire), I would love to try out one of these patterns:
And, just for fun, here is a cute jumpsuit for babies:
Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out these patterns with me today! I have a few Burda patterns in my stash that I plan to attempt sometime this year. For now, if you are interested in any of the rest of the Burda style Spring/Summer collection, you can click here.
