Thanks for the timely review. I was just looking thru this issue and thinking about this dress. Hopefully when I get around to making it, it will turn out as great as yours.

Lovely dress on you! I'm determined to make this in a "fancy" fabric to wear to Christmas parties, so I hope it turns out half as nice as yours!

Seems impossible that Burda's sizing would be so off. Are you using your numerical US pattern size? They're 2 sizes off, but toward the large side. You should measure yourself (cm are more accurate) and use the European size/s obtained, ignoring entirely the US one. That'll get you something whose style you may not like, but that'll fit as advertised.
