This is my very first coat so I’m a bit nervous and unsure cutting out my patterns. The instructions say, “Select your size according to the Burda-dimension table: … coats according to the bust size.” So if my waist and hips are one size larger than my bust, I’m assuming I should modify my pattern for the larger waist and hip size?

Also, I think I need to shorten the length of the coat and the sleeves, but I don’t see any lines on the pattern marked “lengthen or shorten here”.
