Connect points M, H, J, and D in a fairly straight shape to create your back side seam. If necessary, smooth the pattern at the high and low hip points, but do not shave off more than 1/16 inch.
Notch marks should be 1/4 inch long with a 1/8 inch bar across the top. For the back sloper, notch the following: the low hip at the side and the low hip at center back and 1/4 inch above this mark. Center back always gets two notches.
Notch all dart legs and awl punch 1/2 inch above the apex of the dart. Draw in your length grainline and write in your cutting instructions. For the back sloper, write in “Cut 2 – self.”
Add 1/2 inch seam allowance for cutting and a 1 1/2 inch hem allowance.
The lines of Greek architecture inspire this neutral and pastel collection.
