I was wondering why the patterns for sale on BurdaStyle website only start at size 36 and go to size 44 only—at least the greatest part of them.
The patterns that are contained in the Burda Sewing books, including the most recent on Sewing Vintage Modern, start at size 32 and go to size 46 included.
The reason that I started to sew for myself (and I believe this goes for many of us) was to be able to have clothes that fit me since I do not easily find ready made clothes in my size. I understand that patterns can and should be altered, but it would be much easier for less experienced sewers like me to use a pattern in their size already, rather than trying to grade a pattern.
There are many patterns I really, really, really love for sale on Burda, but I have refrained from buying them so far because they all start at size 36 which simply is too large for me—-and my skills at grading are simply ridiculous.
I am a very beginner at sewing, and probably the question I am asking is stupid, but why not have every pattern available in all the sizes? From 32 to 52?
