The latest collection of envelope patterns is available from Burda. I have to admit I’m actually very excited by this collection. There is the usual mix of modern and classic designs in the typical size range (34-44), but there are also a lot of exciting patterns in the Burda Young, Burda Plus, and Burda Men’s collections as well. And, as far as I’m aware, this is the first time Burda has released patterns in the Plus size range branded with the “Burda Young” label on the envelopes, which is an especially exciting development, as many of their previous Burda Plus designs could be considered a bit more matronly than what many younger adults or teens in those sizes may want to wear. And, honestly, I really think Burda hit it out of the park with some of their Plus designs in this release. It was also exciting to see options other than the classic blazer in the men’s section as well. Overall I’m very excited with a lot of the designs in this release and I’m looking forward to adding a lot of these new patterns to my collection.
Since I’m most excited about the Burda Plus styles this year, let’s start with them. I’m obsessed with style 6712.
I’m also quite excited by the Men’s selection this year. It’s nice to get something more casual than a blazer.
Love the spectacular gown (6708) in the Women’s collection.
There are also some great casual dresses as well:
Loving a lot of the jackets this season too:
Not too excited by most of the tops, but there are a few that are pretty cute.
I’m excited by many of the bottoms in this collection; definitely planning on adding some of these to my collection.
There are a few other useful patterns, mostly for cozy looking sleepwear
And, of course, it wouldn’t be a great Burda release without a few crazy costumes:
And that’s about it! Overall I’m pretty excited for this collection, especially a few from the Burda Plus selection. What do you all think? See anything you are dying to make? Or can you skip adding these to your personal collections? Feel free to discuss in the comments!
