I’m a newbie and I’m working on the burda pattern number 7042. I want to cut the pattern but I got confused when I measured myself and looked up the sizes. I’m making a skirt so the instructions told me to measure my hip. I’m a size 42 according to the burda pattern, but my waist is a size 40 according to the pattern. Is it possible to cut the skirt pieces in size 42 and the waistband piece in size 40?
Thank you :)
