WHAT'S NEW - GET READY FOR AUTUMN WITH BURDA
The new Burda catalogue has just arrived for autumn/winter.
Here's some of the stylish sewing patterns to look out for
LOVELY & LOOSE
Showing off the latest trend for dresses with more volume, this easy to wear loose-fitting dress pattern has section seams needs rather than side seams with the option to make with a roll-neck and patch pockets for a more sporty look or round-neck and inseam pockets. Both styles are great to wear by themselves with tights or leggings and boots.
SHORT & SWEET
Short and sweet describes this sewing pattern with 3 fresh and simple dress sewing patterns. Make them in no time at all, they're easy to sew and pattern comes in sizes 8-18. Perfect for lightweight wools, blended fabrics and linens.
TWO WAY STRETCH - SEWING PATTERNS FOR KNITS
Burda 6693 is an elegant jersey knit dress with two sleeve and hem lengths plus waterfall neckline and flattering knot-effect waistline so hides any lumps and bumps. This sewing pattern is for two-way stretch jersey and comes in sizes 8-20. Burda 6730 is another new knit dress but this time as a wrapover dress. It's super easy to make and comes with 3/4 or short length sleves and two hem lengths so it's practical for all seasons.
This season it's all about the silhouette, and this trouser pattern features a longer line version of the popular culottes as well as a wide-legged stylist pair of trousers. Both feature side seams and pockets. Pattern comes in sizes 10-20.
This sewing pattern includes gorgeous narrow slim trousers that are perfect to wear with all sorts of tops from casual, sporty or business wear and are great for evening wear to. The pattern also comes with a stirrup version which is perfect for wearing with boots. Recommended for bi-stretch fabrics and the latest fabrics with stretch neoprene. pattern comes in sizes 8-18.
MIX UP IT WITH SKIRTS
This is a great pattern for the much-loved narrow skirt. Make it one fabric for a stylish option or mix up with different fabrics for a 'patchwork' finish. Both styles feature an asymmetrical yoke and can be made with side slit. Available in sizes 8-20.
Another really easy skirt sewing pattern that resurrects the tiered and gathered skirt and gives it a modern twist but with a '70's feel. We love this shorter red leather version but it comes in two other lengths.
CASUAL AND COMFORTABLE
This sewing pattern features a series of patterns for throw-on double knit jersey or sweater knit casual jackets with wide collars. Perfect for wearing in the car and when a large coat isn't comfortable. The patterns comes in size 8-20.
Another over-sized, lightweight and casually cut to keep you warm and cosy with attached scarf. This longer coat version has patch pockets while the shorter style comes with in-seam pockets and turn up cuffs. Sizes 8-20.
