Step 10 Determine your back dart distance

Howto-slope10rr_large

To determine your back dart distance from center back to the first dart leg, divide your back waist measurement (6 7/8 inches) in half, resulting in 3 7/16 inches. Starting from center back at E, measure over the amount of your back dart distance and mark K. If this calculation does not divide evenly to the nearest 1/8 inch, distribute the smaller quotient toward the center back and the larger quotient toward the side.
