      It was bit bigger then i needed but i only left out the seem allowances making it smaller (I know it is not the right way with projects with more details). Since the fitting is mostly done with the strings, this change did not make too much difference and came out nice. My size is 34 EU (UK 6 i think) when i buy something in a shop. I also added a little lenght to it.

      On the other hand my general experience is, that the older Burda Mags (’90s and earlier) have some sizing issues, 2005 and later are much more accurate regarding to the high street shops measurements:-) I am still more a begginer then a pro, so I try to use later issues of BWoF to guarantee the success.
