very close to my measurements, and I was just looking at the burda size charts the other day for the same reason. For me (my waist is a tad bigger) I'd probably go with a 46 on the bottom, 44 on top. For coat, 44, probably

Hi Katy,
Thank you for replying to the post! It was actually posted by my cat by treading on my keyboard! I'd just started it off when he did it!
When I look at my measurements I seem huge! And I can't begin to believe I need to cut such a big size pattern, I like to kid myself that I can get into a UK size 14 but I'm deluding myself I'm afraid! perhaps if it's a flared shape I might just squeeze in but the armholes pull forward when they're not big enough on the bust. I've taken to wearing tunics with leggings and boots, I won't show my arms, so I'm usually wearing a cardigan! I'm always on the lookout for patterns which will suit my figure.

Janice is the 39" your full bust or your upper bust?
