FREE Burda Style sweatshirt pattern

Make this oversized sweatshirt with free Burda Style pattern!

I love Burda Style patterns as much as I love sharing free sewing patterns with the rest of the crafty community. Burda Style has awesome magazines, I subscribe to the Russian version, and I love their sense of style, but usually they do not release free sewing patterns. This time they made “Runway to Reality” pamphlet with 5 looks made with their patterns in order to bring Runway to Reality. This pattern was featured as an oversized sweatshirt/tunic with some crazy sleeves!:)

Pattern: you can get your free pattern here, once you enter your email to get “Runway to Reality” pamphlet. The pattern comes in PLUS size, therefore I spent quite some time downsizing it to fit me. Including after tracing the pattern out on the fabric, took some nerves 🙂 I also shortened the pattern to make it into sort of crop-sweatshirt-blouse

Fabric: it looks like jersey sweatshirt, but it is not. The grey fabric is polly cotton, that I got at Jo-Ann’s fabric from the red tag shelve and floral fabric is thin printed cotton, just tiny bit that I had left. The sleeve cuffs is the only part that was made out of grey jersey, tiny remnant piece.

Skills: intermediate. Since the pattern needs a lot of adjustments due to the sizing – you will need some skills in that department. Other than that, if you choose stretch fabric and knits – you will probably need a serger, if not – sewing machine is just fine. Other than that – 4 pieces  and about 2 hrs and you should be done and dusted!

Remarks: pattern is good for medium weight fabrics, stretch or non-stretch, since it is not a tight-fitting pattern, maybe I will even use it for the sweatshirt dress in the future. I have made a very similar flower sweatshirt in the past (see it here) the difference is the neckline – and I should say I like this neckline better, since although oversized, it sits nicely and does not move and twist around.
