Step 2 ADJUST PATTERN SIZES

ADJUST PATTERN SIZES

Select your size according to the Burda-dimension table: dresses, blouses, jackets and coats according to the bust size, trousers and skirts according to the hip width. Change the pattern to fit your measurements if they deviate from the Burda-size chart.

Cut out the pattern pieces 1 to 8 according to your size.

Sizes 2 to 12 (EU 34 to 44): The loops on pieces 1 and 2 correspond to size 0 (EU 32). For all other sizes mark the cross lines according to your size: The top loop with the same space to the neckline as for size 0. The bottom loop position is the same for all sizes. Distribute the other loops equally, in between the top and bottom one.

Important: Before cutting out the fabric pieces, tape pattern pieces 1 and 2 together along the top sleeve edges.

Refer to our ‘Adjust patterns for mixed sizes’ technique.

LENGTHENING OR SHORTENING THE PATTERN PIECES

Our pattern is calculated for a height of 5’ 6” (168 cm). If you are taller or shorter, you can adjust the pattern pieces along the lines marked “lengthen or shorten here”. This way the proper fit is maintained. Always adjust all pattern pieces along the same line to the same degree.

How to lengthen and shorten pattern pieces:

Cut the pattern pieces along the marked lines

To lengthen, slide the two halves of the pattern piece as far apart as necessary.

To shorten, overlap the two halves of the pattern piece as far as necessary. Blend the side edges.
