This is my first time using Burda and downloading a pattern is a new concept for me. I’m also confused about seam allowances. When it says — This pattern doesn’t include seam allowance – does that mean the allowance isn’t printed on the pattern? That is OK for me. Or, do you have to take a ruler and add the seam allowance after cutting out the pattern? You would place the pattern pieces on the fabric, use a ruler and chalk and add the allowance? It would be too tedious. I’m hoping to use Suit Trousers 04/2011 #117B. I like this style because you don’t get the bulk from a fly and it also has pockets.
Thanks – I hope I can use this pattern.
