To adjust the waist on your pattern, first measure the distance between your shoulder and your natural waist (the part that goes in, or bends or creases when you bend to the side--not the place where your pants sit!). Then measure your pattern from the shoulders to the waist-line, which should be marked. To make it shorter, you can fold the pattern up. For longer, cut across the pattern at the waist line and position it with a gap between the top half and the bottom half.
