I just bought a dress pattern (in a store) and the dress sizes are really confusing. Nowhere does it say that the pattern is plus-sized, but the sizes start at US size 10, which is supposed to be similar to EU size 36, but is not. The measurements seem really big to me. I just came back from Sweden and my sizing there is 38; here in the US, I wear a size 8.
Is there some secret Burda pattern code I am missing here, or is the sizing just really off?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
