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.

Is there some secret Burda pattern code I am missing here, or is the sizing just really off?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
