So I bought it. I had to print it out twice because I forgot to uncheck “fit to page” the first time. (Silly me.) So some problems early on but that was just my fault. I taped all the pieces together, cut them out and … wait.
Which size is which?
I mean, all the lines are there. And there’s a size chart in the instructions… but no size markings on any of the lines. And the size chart has twice as many sizes as there are lines…
While I could possibly figure out which size is which eventually, that’s really not how I want to spend my time on this project. And the instructions suck. Not what I want to deal with for my first pair of shorts in forever.
So yeah. BurdaStyle #122A was a total clusterfreak.
There are a few other free BurdaStyle patterns I want to try, so I’m not giving up hope on the whole company yet. But this pattern is totally out. (On a side note: I’m a little confused as to why the other reviews of the pattern didn’t mention the problems.)
I went back to tried-and-true McCalls and picked out M6756 (without the lace, obviously)
Here’s to hoping that Joanns has a sale soon.
