Fall/Winter 2017 Burda Plus Magazine

The Fall/Winter Burda Plus has recently hit shelves, and I have to say, it’s quite a good issue!  Lots of great classic pieces that will be great for years to come.  Let’s take a look:


In general, most styles have two or three variations in this magazine, but it does a great job of displaying the versatility of the patterns:

Cute coat!  Love the print blocking and in seam pocket details.

Very classy blazers.  I’m a bit more find of the version with the tie waist, as opposed to the ruffled sleeves, but both of these would be trendy fall pieces.

The pattern is pretty simple, but it is a great way to display fun fabrics.  I also really like the very fitted cuffs – practical to keep out the chill.

I’d do without the sleeve ruffle, but it’s an easy trendy addition to either keep or ditch, and in all other respects this sweater looks incredibly cozy.

This blouse would be a lovely addition to a fall wardrobe.  Simple, and pairs well with jeans and trousers.

Love this maxi!  The blue gown is especially stunning, but it is nice to see it dressed down with the boarder print fabric as well.

It also looks great as a blouse.  I might go with slightly less contrasting fabrics myself, but the style is very pretty and flattering.

This is the blocky type of shirt I tend to avoid, but I do love showcasing the lace on the back of the white one.

Very classic sheath dress.  Beautiful, and a pattern that could do well in the stash for years to come.

It’s a simple skirt, but I really like it!  Looks very comfortable and easy to move in.

This pencil skirt is pretty straightforward from the front, but has a back flounce for movement.  It looks like a great wardrobe addition.

Basic pleated trousers, at ankle length.  I personally prefer my pants to be full length, but that could be an easy adjustment.  And I can understand the thinking to have cropped pants when it starts getting rainy and muddy during winter.

Hardly worth mentioning, but there is also a fringed poncho.  Burda does always manage to make these look cozy and comfortable though.

And that’s it!  I think this is a really great addition to the Burda Plus line.  Lots of great looks ranging from the formal to the more casual, with very flattering lines and nice style options.  I would definitely recommend anyone who sews from the Burda Plus sizes to pick this issue up – it looks like it will be one of those great additions to the pattern stash that can yield classic looks for years to come.  What do you all think?  See anything that makes you want to grab this issue?  Feel free to discuss in the comments!

  1. Thanks for the awesome review! I thought Burda had stopped doing the English edition of their Plus issues. So confusing…


    1. I think they stopped doing English Burda Easy and Burda Plus. You can still order the German Burda Plus from GLP News, and I still like looking at the patterns on the Russian website when they get announced.
