I am a relative dressmaking novice plus sized lady (although I do a lot of home sewing projects) and have recently taken out a subscription to Burda Style Special (previously Burda Style Plus) thinking that this would cover the Plus sizing issue as well as some great sewing patterns etc. Now someone tells me I would have been better with Burda Style as this also does plus sizes as well? I have not received my first magazine yet from the subscription so still have time to change it. Please could all you Burda experts out there (!!) advise as to which magazine you think would be best? When I buy clothing, I purchase a UK size 20 but it seems that I need to go a good two sizes up when pattern making? All your opinions would be really welcome. Many thanks and happy sewing !!
