Actually, the charts are in the pattern envelope on the tissue with the pattern. Duh!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think there should be a better way.
How is a person supposd to know which pattern size to buy?

Guess at this hour I am talking to myself but It helps think things thru. Chloe measures 28"bust, (-AA cup), 26.75" waist,29"hips (round rear but a bit of a belly due to posture).
I am making pants and a top. I am not sure about the pant size.
hips call for size 10, waist calls for 13 junior, bust calls for size 11.
My experience says to make a size 10 all around.. Does anyone have access to a burda style chart.
I am making Burda Kids 9515 and 9490.

I read the finished garment measurements to determine what size I cut mine with all the time. I can judge from that better by just subtracting the ease for each and matching to the measurements I have.

Thank you Laura, The pants pattern calls for stretch fabric. We missed that in the fabric buying so I am cutting on the bias to give her some stretch. I plan to use the size ten since they are low slung pants riding on the hips instead of the waist. her hips are 29" the finished pant is 30". Does this sound like it will work???

Sounds like it to me. I might add an extra 1/2" to the width just in case. You can always take them up but can't always add extra after they are done.

Thanks Barb. Chloe is so hard to please with clothes that I am forever unsure of myself. I cut the sidr seams wider and marked where the original cutting line was so I will know if I really needed extra and exactly how much.

Does anyone know how to pull up this pattern on the computer and look at the layout and instructions. I am confused with the # of pieces for the yoke and the pieces labled #9 and # 8. I am making the long pants and think they are pieces for short shorts but can't tell.

edited: answered my own ? shouldn't sew when tired. I'm correct. shorts. cut yokes 4 pieces for each yoke piece, 2 for right side and 2 for faceing.
