Step 1 Preparations


Paper cut for ANSI A (German DIN A4) prints:

This pattern is printed on 8.5″ × 11″ sheets of plain paper. Do not scale or center pages before printing. Wait until all sheets are printed out before beginning to tape them together. Do not cut out pattern pieces yet— Arrange the sheets on a large, hard, flat surface so that they fit together, matching up like numbers and letters (i.e. 6A to 6A). To tape pattern together, fold under the margin of one piece (6A) and tape right against the line of it’s matching number/letter (6A).

Burda sizes 36, 38, 40, 42, 44. The size chart for maternity clothes is the standard women’s size chart. Compare your own measurements, except for waist measurement, with the size chart to determine your size.

Trace the pattern pieces from the pattern sheet. Tape pieces 21 and 21a together on joining lines. Lengthen piece 22 as indicated. Trace the pocket piece from piece 21 as a separate pattern piece, it is the same for all sizes.
The pleat arrows on pieces 21 and 22 are marked for size 36. For the other sizes, remark pleat arrows accordingly. The snap fasteners marked on piece 21 are for size 36. For the other sizes, mark the top snap the same distance from neck edge as for size 36. The bottom snap is the same for all sizes. Space the other snaps evenly in between.

Seam and hem allowances to be added: Seams and edges 1.5 cm (5/8 in), hem 5 cm (2 ins) (flare hem allowances), sleeve hems 5 cm (2 ins).
