Pin away extra fabric

Mark your pins, with a pen, and draw lines onto the muslin. This is the easiest way to see how much fabric to removed from the pattern.

1. Work with the back piece.

  • Transfer all the lines from the muslin to the paper 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.
