I was just browsing about in the old tinterent and found this pattern. I love it. unfortunately I cannot find any further information on it. It is downloadable and thats all I know. I was hoping for a review but cannot find one. It is the same with every pattern I find, I have trouble with the size I should buy. On the web page it says I should use a size 18 with an adjustment to the bust and hips (take in slightly) but my waist is nearer an 20. I never thought I would say this but it would be better if they used 'proper' sized models alongside sticks lol. Your opinion would be appreciated thank you

I always use a size larger for my waist... I just gradually move from one size for my bust to the larger size for my waist when tracing the bodice of the pattern. If your hips are 18 you could trace the waist of the skirt at size 20 then gradually move in to 18 for the hips. Another really helpful thing to do is to add larger seam allowances to the side seams (1 inch or 2.5 cm), then baste up the side seams and try on for fit. Then if you need to let the side seams out you have a little more fabric to work with. It's a pretty dress! I think it's a multisize pattern, so you don't have to select your size in advance.

The pattern is from issue 2/12 (not 2/14), number 110 B and 110 A. Take a look at Russian Burda 2/12, 110 B and 2/12, 110 A. There you will find reviews of this dress made up by Russian girls. I find this site very helpful - to see how the pattern fits on different bodies.

Shall have a look, thank you. Just checked on their webpage it does say 02/2014 not 2012.

Have now had a nosey but it is in Russian and don't have a clue what to do.

What Speech girl said.

Burdas are multisized, as are most people. Really, no one is just one size.

So, to use Burda, you take your measurements exactly the way Burda says to do, and then trace your very own size line for your neck (a measurement unique to Burda) and your full bust, then taper to the size line for your very own waist, and taper back out for the size line of your very own hips. The result will be a pattern suited to your body, not someone else's, at least as far as girth is concerned. You may have to make length changes for your back waist and sleeve, as many of us do.

Burdas are designed for women about 5' 6" to 5' 7", so if you are taller or shorter than that, you will always have to make length adjustments.

Thank you, that explains so much for this and other patterns. This is a big learning curve for me.
