bernette ‘My World’ Styles

Exotic
Exotic – a look born under the southern stars. Africa has inspired many couturiers and designers, with international catwalks showcasing one breathtaking exotic-look creation after another. This style harmoniously combines western fashion with elements of African folklore. A mix of patterns and bright colors with chic, light caftan styles radiates charm, even in the metropolitan jungle! High wedges and chunky wooden or leather jewelry perfectly accessorize this outfit.

Edgy
For several years now, this Edgy style has been acceptable in polite society. In fact, this look is all the rage, since a nostalgic vintage boudoir style offers a marvelous contrast to the rest of mainstream fashion. Edgy showcases the ‘Snow White’ look: pale skin, black hair and red lips, wasp waist, sexy corset, mega-high heels and perfect makeup. Black, red, cream and gold are the defining colors of this look. The styles are figure-hugging and sexy, without descending into brashness. Lacing and trim provide clever accents in just the right places.

Romantic
Ruffles and flounces, a touch of pink combined with neutral beige and powder shades – that’s the playful romantic look. For materials, silk-satin, delicate chiffon and viscose mixes fit the bill, with the variety of fabrics creating lively, appealing garments with a particularly polished style. Classy fabrics and multiple layers lend a grown-up, modern feel to this look, which swirls around the body with gently draping, figure-hugging cuts. 

Business
Forget about a conservative approach to business wear. Our intention here is to inject a bit of individual, up-to-the-minute style into the business world without breaking the rules governing office apparel. The secret: recycling! For this, all you need is a couple of men’s business shirts or a few nice business-style fabric remnants which can be cleverly sewn together into this feminine outfit. Fabrics such as cotton, flannel or viscose appeal owing to their clear-cut yet discreet colours, which fit seamlessly into the business world. The styles are classy yet unconventional, and very feminine to boot.

    HI. I guess I fall in the exotic category. I am an older woman also and fit into more than one category.

  2. Ladybugny November 29th

    Well I always thought that I'm more classic then any of your choices. But now that I'm in my 60's with a bit of a roll for a midriff and a tummy that has no tummy muscles left. So if I had to pick one I guess I'd say that now I lean more to exotic because I do like my cloths to be lose,have some movement, and hide what age has done.

    YUMMY pattern! THANKS!

  4. User avater KaptKim November 28th

    My style came out as edgy but I also fall into the business category. Unfortunately, the "edgy" pattern looks kinda trashy. Sorry Bernina but you need to keep all that lacing confined to the costume category...wenches and mead anyone?

  5. Carol_Z November 28th

    Well, I'm an "older woman" also and don't feel that I really fit into any of these styles, nor even into a combination of several. If I need to dress up, I might wear something in the business style, but much more classic than the above pattern. Or to really dress up (as in a very dressy outfit) again, I would be wearing something much more classic - less frilly and less revealing.

    But the idea is fun.

    Wow! I came out romantic, but I'd never make that pattern. The questions were too general, and most had 2 or 0 answers that applied to me. Yes, it could have been a better quiz. But thanks for the offer!

  7. Mariesainte November 28th

    Thanks for the pattern. Can't say I agree with the four types, as I dress for different situations and sew accordingly. You can do better than this, Bernina!

  8. Hilarykathrine November 28th

    Hi Everyone: I too, seem to fall into the same in-between category as the four people who posted so far - romantic and business. Thanks for the free pattern. p.s. Your tutorials are the best!

  9. Mamato8 November 28th

    I would say that I am more classic. I like tailored jackets when I have the right shape for them. I like full skirts and shirt dresses. Sometimes I think my style belongs in the 40's. Comfort before style, but style if I can get it in a comfortable form.

    I am creative. I don't know what my daughter would do if I actually followed the pattern as written! I like things to be simple. I use a simple pattern with wonderful print fabric. I like to say, "I let the fabric do the work." I like my clothes to be flattering and practical. That's why I like prints! They hide a lot of fingerprints and loving from my children and grandchildren.

    Thank you for the pattern!

    I don't fit any one of these styles. I'm a little romantic but with fewer ruffles, but a little more business conventional-casual.

  11. user-2068325 November 27th

    As an older woman I feel like I am both romantic and business too.

  12. User avater Grandmagwen November 27th

    I seem to fall into both the romantic and the business styles. I like the feminine look and also the taylored look.
