I want to make this dress
The pattern is only available in tall sizes. I’m 5’1". My bust, waist and hip sizes are burda sizes 18, 19, and 21. I’m looking for guidelines for how to modify the pattern pieces in order to start with a muslin somewhere in the ballpark of a decent fit. My first two attempts were colossal failures. I tried to start by just shortening everything, but everything got distorted and I ended up with a bodice which had a gigantic flop of extra fabric in the back. I could have stuffed it and passed for a hunchback, but that’s not the look I’m after.
Even petite patterns require quite a bit of shortening, and I’ve had problems with weird gaping in the back of other Burda patterns, but nothing as dramatic as this.
