I don’t sew a lot of garments, but now I’m in trouble – my daughter’s best friend wants me to help her make an Asian style sheath dress for an upcoming Cosplay conference. It’s Burda 8438, a short sheath dress (view B). http://www.simplicity.com/p-7255-burda-style-dress.aspx.
It’s a little beyond my skill set, I think. I can’t get past first base – the size chart that comes inside the pattern says that someone with a 39" bust (like her) needs to cut out the size 18 pattern. But the Burda chart online says that a 39" bust is a size 12! http://www.burdastyle.com/statics/size-chart.
What am I missing here? Any help would be appreciated!
