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 if necessary, to fit your measurements if they deviate from the Burda-dimension table.
Refer to our ‘Adjust patterns for mixed sizes’ technique
Size 4 to 14 (EU 36 to EU 46)
The button holes of piece 1 are marked according to size 2 (EU 34). For the bigger sizes mark the lowest buttonhole in the same length to the waist sign like size 2 (EU 34). The upper buttonhole is positioned the same for all sizes. The other buttonholes have to be distributed in equal lengths in between the upper and the lowest button hole.
LENGTHENING OR SHORTENING THE PATTERN PIECES ACCORDING TO YOUR SIZE
Our pattern is calculated for a height of 5’ 6” (168 cm). If you are taller or shorter, you may adjust the pattern to fit your size. Choose your size at the lines marked “lengthen or shorten here”. Thus the proper fit is preserved. Make sure that you adjust all pieces of one pattern by the same amount at the same lines.
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. Even out the side edges.
