I usually wear an 18 in most other patterns. I have used Burda for my granchildren and my daughter had her bridesmaids outfits made with a Burda pattern. But I have not used it for myself. I found and awesome pattern I want to use for a gold top, 7218,, but I am not sure if the sizing will be right for me. I am good at making changes to patterns if need be but how do Burda patterns fit -true, small, big? Your advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

    If you take your measurements and use the sizing charts to find out your size. http://www.burdastyle.com/statics/size-chart The looseness / fit of the garment is dependant on the style and how its meant to be worn.

    With any pattern, it depends on your shape and usual alterations. I have learned that I must always do an FBA. So, I choose Burda patterns based upon my upperbust measurement, rather than the bust measurement. This way, the shoulders usually fit me. (I think Burda is a little broad in the shoulders). I then do an FBA and usually get a reasonably good fit. But that’s just me. I would say that the measurement charts are fairly accurate, but some styles will of course have more ease than others.
