    Burda patterns have no seam allowance. Could this be the reason your garments turned out to be too small?

    The tops lovely. I normally cut out a size larger as taking in is easier than adding a piece. X

    Very nice! I also usually make the same size as I would buy in stores, possibly your fabric has somewhat less stretch than what the pattern was designed for? That happened to me once – my fabric did have stretch but it was definitely not as stretchy as normal tricot so the dress I made was very tight…. Lesson learned ;)

    I actually tend to need to size down, but that might also have to do with the measurement system one is used to. I use the European sizes and have been buying 38 tops and 40 bottoms from the stores. Burda suggests I should use 40 and 42 respectively, but guess what sizes of theirs actually fit me? yup! 38 and 40 :D
