Overall I would have to say that this is a pretty decent Spring collection. It tends towards the simple (a few too many sack dresses and plain tunic tops) but there are a few patterns I am really liking! Let's take a peak...
|My favorite! I love the gathered detail at the waist.|
For me this is the one must buy of this collection.
|Do I need another sheath dress? Probably not...|
But I like this one anyway.
|I love the neckline on this - it looks like a great summer dress!|
|This could be a fun color blocking pattern.|
|I love the coat-dress with the shawl collar!|
|The Burda interpretation of the Lady Catherine dress.|
|Simple and elegant. Lovely!|
|Hmmm... This reminds me of a certain Oscar dress/cape from last year.|
|Vintage wedding gown pattern.|
|I love the gather on this pattern, but since it is petite I don't think I will be getting it.|
|I don't think this dress would look good on me, |
but the way the fabric is draped is rather interesting.
|We couldn't live without another Burda dirndl pattern!|
Well, some of these aren't vintage patterns, but they do look like they are meant to reinforce the latest Burda sewing book - Sewing Vintage Modern.
|Simple vintage gown pattern.|
|Probably my favorite of the vintage releases, but not something I would realistically make.|
|Looks like Burda is getting in on the fascinator craze too.|
Pants & Skirts:
|I think this is a pretty fantastic jeans pattern (yeah, I am a flare girl).|
|Talk about wide-legged trousers!|
|Elegant evening skirt.|
|Very practical summer skirt - I actually like the one with the ruffle!|
|I love the seam lines on this skirt!|
Jackets & Tops:
|I really like this jacket pattern - the way the collar is attached is really interesting.|
|Fun jacket for a fancy shindig.|
(View A makes me think of Goodbye Valentino!)
|The sleeves on this jacket look like they could have interesting construction.|
|I really like the gathered bustier top! Very pretty.|
|A nice tank top pattern for summer that doesn't involve knits.|
|Ummm... what is up with those sleeves?|
|Lady Gaga sleeves....|
|Hmmmm... this looks... familiar...|
|Look! A men's pattern!|
|A practical maternity pattern for the working mom-to-be.|
|I think the jacket and dress are both really cute!|
