Step 4 Determine your front dart distance

Howto-slope4_large

With the following guide, use your full waist measurement including ease (28 1/2 inches) to determine your front dart distance from center front to the first dart leg. Round up if you are in between measurements (Waist measurement plus ease – Dart distance):

24 inches – 2 3/4 inches
25 inches – 2 7/8 inches
26 inches – 3 inches
27 inches – 3 1/8 inches
28 inches – 3 1/4 inches
29 inches – 3 3/8 inches
30 inches – 3 1/2 inches
31 inches – 3 5/8 inches
32 inches – 3 3/4 inches
33 inches – 3 7/8 inches
34 inches or more – 4 inches

Starting from center front at A, measure over the amount of your front dart distance (3 3/8 inches) and mark I.
