Wondering if this turns out to look like pattern drawing
on front and if Burda patterns run large or true to
size? Thanks for any advice or suggestions any of
you may have for using Burda patterns. Carolbee

ETA First, you pattern photo:


Well, Burda is know for it's great patterns and usually fits true to size. Have you read the pinned thread on Burda?

They are infamous for their low necklines and obtuse instructions, though. If it's a special occasion dress, you might need to muslin first, before you cut into expensive fabric.

Also, choose your size by your body measurements, and full bust. Many here feel that Burda is drafted for a C cup.

I admit to having never sewn the envelop patterns, just the magazines. Not sure what the differences are. Hopefully, someone else will have more input.

I wonder if this pattern didn't come out in an older issue. This has been known to happen from time to time. Good luck!

Thanks so much for your response. I plan to make a muslin
but am concerned about the front being too low. I will
find out--also, this has a bustier lining with corset stays so
I will make that too. (I have made one previously).
Then I will know if I want to use my expensive silk with this
patternl.
