Place pins where there is too much fabric. 

Mark your pins, with a pen, and draw lines on the sample with a ruler. This way is the easiest way to see how much fabric should be removed from the pattern.

1. Work with the backpiece.

  • Transfer all the lines from the sample to the paper pattern. This is done by measuring on the sample and then marking the lines on the pattern. The new lines are indicated with red, like illustrated below.
  • The dart is made deeper.

2. The finished pattern piece.

  • Make a grainline and name the pattern.
