Here's the link , showing 20 out of > 80 patterns.

In Germany, catalogues & patterns shall be in stores on Jan 16, only 5 days after the burdastyle magazine Feb issue (NAYY).

As always, it's hard to tell without the technical drawings whether or not you really like a pattern -- but I am cautiously optimistic that some patterns will find their way to my pattern stash ...

Happy Sewing!

Thanks for posting this! I'm curious about the beach dress they say is made of a rectangle (according to Google Translate!), and the wrap cardi would be great for going to yoga class. I'm curious to see the rest, though I very rarely buy Burda enveloppe patterns. I tend to prefer the patterns in the magazine.

Thanks for the link. I like the plus dress in the watercolor print, and the vintage pattern.

Now that Simplicity is carrying them or whatever they're doing, I wonder when they'll be available on their website as well.

I L-O-V-E the watercolor print of that dress (10/20) so much that I wrote burda and asked about it. I doubt that they are able to tell me where they got it but want to give it a try.

Happy Sewing!

Thanks for this!! This is clearly a birthday present. (I'm a huge Burda envelope pattern fan and this is my birthday, lol.) I think this collection looks interesting -- there's kind of a vintagey twist to some of the items, especially that blouse and wide-legged pants. And of course the ACTUAL vintage item!



Is that blue pantsuit in the sketch perhaps a "vintage" 90's item or something? I'm not sure.

I'm intrigued by the men's suit -- not because my son particularly needs or wants a suit, but because I think he would love the slim fit of those pants.

Those patterns look good. I particularly like the slim pants. My DH has just bought some just like that (Country Road, an Aussie brand) and they are flattering on a slim hipped man.

The pants look nice, but the shoulders on that jacket look terrible!

I love the white crossover blouse. Burda is often much to avant garde for me but I love the comfy elegance of this collection.

AND I am wearing the tan rtw twin of the blue tuxedo detail suit RIGHT NOW!!! Definitely going to pick that up. I'm on the way home from work, waiting for public transit, not lounging around home in my silk tuxedo haha.

The caption said something about "Doris Day" inspired. Very feminine!

Here's my favorite, love the back detail:



I guess the front must be a plain, princess seam...although this is Burda so you never know....

This one seems to have a curved midriff, a bit in those Kay Unger patterns from the last two years:



My mother would love this one, but with skinny pants, I think:



Can't wait for the full preview. As always, line drawings are the deal breaker.
