Okay. I want to make pullover shirts and tunics without a seam up the back. All my patterns have a two-piece back. If I want to put the pattern back on the fold of the cloth, how will this affect the neckline? How about the arm holes? Should I pin the pattern to be about 1" past the fold, to make up for the seam allowance that would be there if I followed instructions and cut two pieces? I love to experiment, but this time I’m asking for advice before cutting.

    If your pattern has a straight back seam, and plenty of room for an opening not up the back, just fold the seam allowance out (usually 15mm or 5/8", but check!), and place it to the fold.
