sewing patterns


Have you ever bought a Burda pattern? The range of patterns that Burda now produces has changed much over the last few years. Patterns are more stylish, less ‘european’ in looks and responding to what those making clothes are wanting.

We look at their predictions:

Add splashes of orange by choosing a print for a stylish kimono top or go for full block colour on a gorgeous semi-fitted dress.

Orange is definitely the new black for this summer. Wear as little or much as you feel comfortable!

Burda 6914 (sizes 34-46) – This knee-skimming dress has some lovely features including tiny neck folds, gathered hem darts or a broad hem band of the longer length.

Burda 6935 (sizes 32/34- 56/58). Make this soft draping kimono-style garment as a top or dress. Plain designs and lines are perfect foe using with powerful coloured prints.

Leopard print’s continue to be popular but this has extended to other jungle fauna and flora prints.
Safari detailing like large flap pockets, belt loops, gathered at the ankles and deep waistband pleat makes these hipster casual trousers perfect for this look – Burda 6907 (sizes 34-46).

Anyone can make bold prints work when used on the bottom half of your body and worn with simple neutral coloured blouses and tops
Blue shades of the sea along with crisp white is a refreshing  colour combination that is easy to wear and looks great against most skin types, and everyone loves the nautical styling.

Burda 6934 (sizes 32/34 – 44/48) consists of a series of garments including this wrap top that all have one seam and cut from one piece of fabric with an elastic casing to assure a good comfortable fit for holiday and casual wear.

Burda 6918  comes in sizes 34-44. This pinafore style dress has a strong maritime feel when made in a striking blue and white stripe fabric. It features a flattering wide pleated skirt.
