You’re going to want to beat me. Andrea left me a comment today and noticed something that I did not. As this pattern is for taller ladies, that means that the size chart is actually completely different and that Burda Style (the American site) has linked to the wrong size chart for Burda #127. CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS? I’m almost about to scrap this pattern. Huge sigh……
In point of fact, this size chart is sort of like a regular commercial pattern size chart with random numbers assigned to a group of measurements, which means that my original thought of the size being the waist size in centimeters is way off. OK. I’ve deciphered the bust, waist and hip measurements, so without further adieu, here you go.
- Size 72 76 80 84 88
- Bust 84 cm 88 92 96 100
- Waist 66cm 70 74 78 82
- Hip 90 cm 94 98 102 106
According to my hip measurement (that’s the measurement we’ll go by to cut and fit the trousers), this means that I’m actually a size 84 rather than the size 76 which I was going to cut. Please note also that other than the size chart being completely off, everything else you need to do with the pattern still applies. You will need to add the seam allowances, but not the hem allowance. Eeekkk! I’m so so sorry about this Ladies. Huge thanks to Andrea for pointing this out. Big apologies everyone! Thanks for everyone’s help on this, this pattern has seriously been a trip!
Let me know if you are completely confused! Can I also just say, I’m so glad I’m not making these by myself. How bad would this have all been if you guys hadn’t given me feedback, tips and tricks. Big thanks everyone! You all make extra fabulous sewing sisters!
