When I first found and purchased Burda Style, I was thrilled, so many fabulous patterns in one magazine!
I am on the heavy side and have proudly dropped and kept off ten pounds (currently working on dropping another 10). I wear a large off the rack but somehow sewing patterns are different, generally smaller and more depressing. I was checking the pattern sizing in Burda and realized that NOTHING in the “normal” section would fit me, I would have to loose SIX inches off my waist and 3″ off my chest, to be able to fit into their largest “normal” size!!! WTF??? Is there a world of tiny model-sized people I don’t know about?
Therefore I am NOT buying Burda Style magazine again, even though they are coming out with a Burda Plus in the new year.
