Review quote

"The BurdaStyle name is popular among sewists, and this collection of workplace-friendly garments from the magazine's archives will appeal to young professionals who want to put a distinct stamp on their wardrobe." --Library Journal

"The thing I LOVE about Burda is that their sewing patterns are designed for what's on trend today and they're always up-to-date. You're not going to flip through this book and see yet another "same ol' same ol', I've seen this a thousand times" kind of sewing pattern. Even the fabrics they use are different. I love that. I LOVE finding an unique brand out there." -Schnitzel & Boo

"If you've ever wanted to sew Burda patterns but were worried about the paucity of instructions, this book is for you. Just about every step is illustrated, and clearly, too. This looks like a great book for intermediate sewists or people who want to stretch a little bit...the patterns aren't 'easy' but the illustrations mean you won't go too far wrong." --Dress a Day
