Hello this is my first post ever on the forum ! I’m new to sewing but I’m practicing and I’m finishing my first piece of clothing (a top).
I was searching for a good coat/jacket pattern for this winter (for when I will be more experienced)… I am very picky because I have an “unusual” silhouette (sort of) so I need something flattering and the “Nadine” pattern caught my eyes ! It’s absolutely lovely and I’m determined to sew it no matter what !
But I have a question: I read somewhere that Burda re-designed this jacket between the 32-42 sizing and the plus-size, is that true ? Because I want to make the best version there is of this jacket and I want to make it in the same style as the plus-size version (in grey wool).
My other question is : what size would you recommend me to purchase knowing that according to the size chart :
- I’m a size 44 for the bust (98 cm)
- I’m a size 44 for the waist (81 cm)
- I’m a size 40 for the hip (98 cm)
- plus I have narrow shoulders
Do you think I should go with the 32-42 pattern and adjust it or rather purchase the plus-size one ?
Thanks in advance :)
