We've got new patterns to announce! New Burda Patterns are here! And so are new New Looks!
New Burda Patterns
It is always exciting to open a box of brand new pattern styles- and this box of Burdas did not disappoint. I noticed a lot of styles which caught my eye, but these three stood out as featuring really different silhouettes, so I thought you might like to check them out.
Burda 7201 Dress and Blouse
This is a dress and blouse pattern with distinctly kimono-esque lines. They are semi-fitted, with a placket-like cross over front panel and belting at the waist. The design allows for two complementary fabrics to be used for added detail. The style is really pulled together, but casual enough for every day and has a very modern feel. These garments would be gorgeous in a satin, crepe or a lightweight cotton.
Burda 7208 Top, Pants and Skirt
The next pattern is for a set of knit coordinates; a top, pants and skirt. The keyhole detailing on the top along with the diagonal shirring at the waist give these pieces a really polished, ready-to -wear feel. And they look so comfortable that they would be the perfect garments to pack for your next trip , or just to wear out to dinner! The top features both sleeveless and long-sleeved versions and would look amazing in either solid or printed knit or jersey.
Burda 7199 Dress and Jacket
There were a ton of jacket styles in this new set of patterns. Here is one which can also be sewn up as a dress! The semi-fitted design features an elastic waist with buttons or ties, and a relaxed, double-breasted effect to the top. There is a short stand-up collar and slash pockets on the dress which would be perfect in a polished linen or cotton. The jacket also has a stand-up collar and has elastic cuffs. This piece could be dressed up or down easily, depending on fabric choice.
Let us know what you think and donít forget to post your reviews!
Check out all the new Burdas.
New New Looks
Flattery is the word for my selections from New Lookís January 2012 catalog. These patterns feature relatively simple designs, but I think they will sew up beautifully to flatter many figure types.
New Look 6098 Dress and Top
I have just learned how to sew with knits, so I am very excited to try out 6098.
It is a simple silhouette, with a set-in empire panel at high waist, three-quarter sleeves with gathers, and a flared skirt. The pattern can be made in a lovely tunic length also which would look great with a mini skirt as featured on the model, or Capri-length leggings. A heavier weight knit would be suitable for winter, paired with a nice scarf, and it could be sewed in a cotton interlock for a cool, breezy summer top or dress.
New Look 6095 Dress and Bag
The next pattern in my flattery series features a fitted, above the knee dress, with a high, shallow scoop neck and zipper in back. There is cap sleeve as well as sleeveless options, and ribbon detailing options as well.
This dress is designed for woven fabrics such as cotton, lightweight wool, and laundered silks. New Look has also provided a pattern for a nicely sized tote bag, 13x15 inches, with contrasting webbing detail. Sew one up to complement your dress for your next sight-seeing adventure!
New Look 6100 Shorts
I donít wear a lot of shorts anymore, but these looked like they would be super comfortable.
The design features a fitted version with cuffs and tie at waist, as well as a looser, more flowing version. Both styles have slash pockets for convenience. Either of these styles would be a flattering option for a dressy short to wear for a summer outing. I would sew the second version in a nice lightweight linen or poplin.
New Look 6115 Toddler Dress
And last but not least, something to flatter the little one!
This dress for toddlers features a front panel for contrasting fabric, a curved yoke, and back zipper. There are options for gathering the bottom of the A- line skirt to create a balloon effect in addition to finishing options. This sleeveless dress would be darling for a special occasion in satin or for a day out in sweet gingham.
