Step 2 ADJUST PATTERN

Step_1b_large

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 to fit your measurements if they deviate from the Burda-size chart. Cut out the pattern pieces1 to 12 for the vest according to your size.
Sizes 40 to 50 (EU 50 to 60): Mark the lines for the top pocket in the same way as for sizes 34 to 38 (EU 44 to 48).
Sizes 36 to 50 (EU 46 to 60): When marking the lines for the bottom pocket, close the dart. Mark the pocket lines in front of the dart in the same way as for size 34 (EU 44). Connect those lines.

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.
