New sewing pattern styles.
You may have spotted over the last few weeks that there has been new sewing pattern collections from Burda Style and Butterick. There are some great transitional pieces for your next sewing projects as we move into Autumn. Here are some of our favourites.
Statement sleeves are still really popular on the high street and as we move into a cooler season, longer sleeves are incorporating design details such as ruffles, flounces and gathered cuffs. Take a look at the new Burda Style and Butterick designs below.
Burda Style 6368
This shirt has two very different variations, which makes it ideal for both work wear and party wear! Keep it simple with the plain sleeve and button down front option or style it up with the voluminous flounce version. This second option also has ruffles at the shoulder head. Make the details the star of the show by choosing a plain cotton or shirting fabric.
With two style variations, this blouse is great for beginners. Choose from a flattering pleated front v-neck bodice or closer fitting round neck bodice. The sleeve options include a fluted variation, which is ideal for drapey fabrics. There is also a gathered version, perfect for cottons.
Burda Style 6389
This dress is a knock out with floaty fluted sleeve cuffs and architectural curved French darts. Alternatively choose the long tubular sleeve cuffs with wrist ties. Complement these with a waist tie to give more shape to the dress. This dress is certainly a contender for Christmas parties!
This relaxed fit blouse has a lovely gathered neckline and the option for three-quarter length or full length sleeves with a gathered cuff. Version 1 also offers the option of a gathered peplum for extra ruffle!
One of our most versatile new tops is the Butterick 6591, where you can make four completely different versions. We really like the bell sleeve version to add a bit of volume in the sleeve and also the amazing variation pictured below where you can add a ruffle to the full width of the top between the sleeve hems across the back! What a statement this would be and we definitely think it’s calling out for a bit of colour blocking.
Burda Style has some lovely new designs that will help to keep you warm over the coming months. We can already imagine cosying up on the sofa in these new styles.
Burda Style 6366
With cut over shoulders, this relaxed fit top will be easy to fit and sew up. Choose a snuggly sweater or jersey knit fabric, perhaps with some cabling detail, for cosy nights in.
Burda Style 6397
It has to be done, the matching hooded jumpsuits, also known as the onesie! This unisex pattern can be made for anyone and you can give a sporty look with a kangaroo pocket and contrasting sweater fabrics or choose a fun all-in-one animal print. These would make great Christmas presents for family members.
Burda Style 6361
If you are looking for a coat with comfort then this is the one for you. Make it in a soft wool with the hood option and side seam pockets for a causal jacket this Autumn. There is the option to add a peplum into the gathered waist seam for extra detail or in seam front pockets if you prefer. Choose chunky buttons for this pattern to make a subtle style statement.
Much loved for the vintage designs, here are a few new vintage inspired designs for your handmade wardrobe from Butterick.
This would be a great project for an intermediate dressmaker with some more tricky design details to get stuck into. The long front skirt pleats provide a great structure to this dress without the need for boning and will need to be sewn carefully to get a good finish. There are also two skirt length and sleeve options for this dress.
The latest design from Gertie is a 1950s inspired dress with across neckline strap that lets you showcase your favourite brooch. Choose from a slim fitting darted version of the dress or full skirt for some classic 1950s swish.
This faux-fur collar coat will be so cosy in Winter. Coats are a big sewing project and it’s never too early to start planning and looking at fabric options. This sewing pattern has three length options for a more obvious or subtle vintage vibe. It also has three different sleeve options too. With a contrasting material for the collar, you really can put your own stamp on this.
