This may be necessary to keep the shape of a garment, e.g. easing in a wider back section to fit the front shoulder seams. The extra length of the back edges should be carefully pushed together to meet the front while avoiding any tucking. The best way is to stitch a line of large gathering stitches beside the marked seam line and gently gather up the extra length to fit – then stitch the seam, working from the shorter side.
