Featured in the PR book!
The European petite and tall sizing that Burda uses can be confusing. The regular-length European sizes are divided in half to get the petite size and doubled to get the tall size. For example, Burda's size 36 petite is called size 18, and their size 36 tall is called size 72. Burda's size chart is helpful but doesn't make any reference to the "English" (U.S., U.K., etc.) sizing terms regular (R), tall (T), and petite (P). So I've revamped their chart to show these designations. Hope this helps!
I've shown the "English" (U.S., U.K., etc.) size first, in bold, then the Burda size in regular font:

6R=32 6T=64 6P=16

8R=34 8T=68 8P=17

10R=36 10T=72 10P=18

12R=38 12T=76 12P=19

14R=40 14T=80 14P=20

16R=42 16T=84 16P=21

18R=44 18T=88 18P=22

20R=46 20T=92 20P=23

22R=48 22T=96 22P=24

24R=50 24T=100 24P=25

26R=52 26T=104 26P=26

28R=54 28T=108 28P=27

30R=56 30T=112 30P=28

32R=58 32T=116 32P=29

34R=60 34T=120 34P=30

TY. I haven't sewn with Burda in years because I am tall and with all the changes I needed to make, it got out of hand. Maybe this will help me get back to Burda.
