I just got my first BurdaStyle magazine and found many things I wanted to try. But, the sizing is confusing to me. I’m 5’9" so what would be a 42 for me in the original sizing—-lists a larger size on the tall chart that none of the patterns list as an option (other than some Plus—just because I’m taller they class me as wider too?) I’m wondering if I just need to lengthen the pattern in the (probable) two areas or so where my length will be different like the top?? I’m hoping those of you with experience can guide me in what I may expect if I try to make these patterns……I always, always know that pants and skirts will always be too short no matter what pattern so I’m used to that. I’ve never made a Burda pattern so I just want to get an idea of what I’m in for on these. Thanks for your time and I’m so glad I found the Burda site, that magazine is so hard to put down :—)
