    Hi! I took the pattern making 101 course but took this class late and was unable to ask this in time: How can i change (quite a lot actually) the waist size of the block? In order to fit my hips the waist always get huge, specially in the back, but when i sew and than tailor it in, the back waist end up much lower than the front. Thanks for the help! Tatiana
