Determine your back dart width by taking your front dart width (3/4 inch) and subtracting 3/8 inch for back contouring, resulting in a final calculation of 3/8 inch. Starting at K, measure over this amount and mark L. If your front dart width is 3/8 inch, you will eliminate the back dart. The same applies if you have no front dart.
Next, calculate the remainder of the back waist calculation by subtracting the back dart distance (3 7/16 inches) from your back waist measurement (6 7/8 inches). Measure over this amount (3 7/16 inches) from L and mark M.
