I have a skirt pattern which is lovely but very short and I am quite tall I wanted to lengthen it at the level of the hips through the panels which are curved, above a point where there is a right angle seam (if you look at the pattern you might see what I mean). I cut the pattern 3 cm from the waistband seam and added a 3cm section but now the seams don’t join up properly. Normally I would just draw a line which smoothes out the difference but some of the differences, particularly the piece with the right angle seam in it are really out and I can’t work out how to do this and maintain the waist length and depth of the pieces. Is there a standard way to do this or should I just live with a short skirt? Thanks
