The new Burda Spring collection has shown up on the Simplicity website! Click here if you want to take a peak for yourselves.
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…|
Men & Maternity:
|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!|
There are lots more patterns to look at, but I found most of them to be too basic to be of note. So, what do you all think? Is Burda’s spring sewing too boring? Or are you finding lots of fabulous patterns you can’t wait to get? Feel free to discuss in the comments!
