OK, ready? Here we go. You’ll need the back skirt pattern piece for this (or the piece that has the slit). All you have to do is add 1 1/4 inches (3.2 centimeters) to the back edge where the slit begins and ends. Then, at the top of the slit, give your the extension a 45 degree angle – do make sure its a 45 degree angle if you plan to go ahead and use this tutorial in conjunction with my lining tutorial (You can achieve a 45 degree angle with a protractor or even a see through quilting ruler). This added on section to the slit of the skirt will be referred to as the vent extension. You’re halfway there. The back skirt piece should now look something like the above photo. Cut this from the paper, cut your cloth and next we’ll sew it up.
