Hold the paper pattern pieces to your body, in front of a mirror. You will see where the pieces need to be altered. Lay pattern pieces together as in the finished garment when marking the alteration lines. To prevent the pieces from shifting sideways when lengthening, mark a vertical line at each alteration line. If your style has vertical bust darts, lay these darts closed before marking the alteration lines. To do this, cut the paper pattern piece from side seam edge to point of dart (left image). Lay dart closed (right image). Glue the cut edges together again after the pattern piece has been lengthened or shortened.
The style is cool and sporty beach wear that can be worn anywhere!
