    I have just bought a couple of Lisette for Butterick patterns (B6464 and B6411), and I see that the sizing is different from Liesl+co patterns. The body measurements for a size 10 in the Liesl+co chart correspond to a size 16 in the Butterick envelope.
    What size should I cut, 10 or 16?

    Hello, @mariajsanroman! I’ve written a blog post to help explain the difference between sizes:

    Thank you for the quick answer and the link, @liesl
    So, should the B6411 had been a Liesl+co pattern, my measurements would appear in size 10 instead of 16, right? And I have to draw a 16 to make the dress in my size.
