French blog Burda Addicts posted pictures of the Fall patterns catalog. I like the little orange pants suit. I especially like that the jacket seems to be shoulder pad free!

Thank you!! There's a lot of wonderful stuff in there. I guess this means the new catalogue might be out in a few weeks?

That vintage coat is amazing.

There was also a sneak peek on the Burda site somewhere, iirc. No line drawings yet though. I am not blown away by the plus size patterns, but it's hard to tell without proper photos and line drawings.

They seem to be up on the German site, here.

Thanks for posting!
Wow, there's some pretty weird stuff in there!
I still like that orange pantsuit though it does seem to require shoulderpads. The shouders still seem pretty narrow. I'll be getting the raglan top pattern for sure.

I just looked all the way through -- there's some interesting stuff in there. I agree about the plus patterns this time... several of them sure aren't very flattering.

The funniest thing is the Miss Galaxy costume at the end. It's even funnier because it's the only costume in the collection, so it really jumps out at you, lol.

It took a while to scroll through that -- I don't find the German site nearly as user-friendly as the Simplicity site (and you can't enlarge the images much), so I'll have another look at it once Simplicity puts these up.

No kids' or craft patterns this time? Maybe this isn't the full collection. If so, that would explain why there's only one costume.

Wait -- there are more on the main catalogue page, here, if you're willing to sift through a mixture of magazine and envelope patterns. There are some kids' patterns after all (and more costumes). Also one very cute stuffed animal pattern (a donkey and sheep). This might interest the person who made those wonderful Burda monkey-type stuffed animals recently.

Oh, and if I were into sewing historical costumes, I'd be very psyched about the "belle époque" dress/outfit (late 19th-early 20th century).

Yes, I'll be steering away from pagoda shoulders. They look a bit dangerous.

I love the retro wrap dress and the pant skirts pattern. I am not a culottes person, but this would work for me.

Usually you can get a big-to-huge picture if you click on "Original-Größe" on the bottom right, after you've already clicked to enlarge once.

And yes, apparently they separate out the kids' and the costumes:
kids
costumes
Why Miss Galaxy is in with the "normal" collection and not with the costumes, I don't know
