Step 2 ADJUST PATTERN SIZES

Step_1b-hi_res_large_large

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 according to your size.

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.
