I've circled the pattern piece we're going to alter in purple. This pattern is printed in Burda sizes 34-42. We're going to alter this pattern down to a size 32. You could apply the same method to extend the pattern outward to a size 44. Although I have not tried it personally, I have been told that you can really only use this resizing method to go up or down at most 2 sizes- any more than that and the proportions might be off-alas for the many beautiful Burda Mode patterns that start in size 38! By the way, don't be tempted to think that you can change the size of a pattern by printing it out at a different scale or using a photocopier to shrink or enlarge it. If you get the waist to fit, you'll probably end up with teeny (or gaping) armholes and neck opening! This method takes a little time, but it works.
