I have fallen behind in posting book reviews here, because I picked this one up shortly after it came out. If you got the first BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook, this is a good follow-on to that. It has more basic patterns with instructions for variations, and even includes a pattern for a mens shirt (in addition to several iconic dress silhouettes, blouses, and pants).
Meanwhile, I made two blouses from the blouse pattern in the BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook, like so:
I wore this one this week as part of my work-travel wardrobe.
