the new leather tunic #132: It instructs “add seam allowances”
Yet the bottom panel does not fit the upper bodice pieces. Are you sure there are no seam allowances built in already.?
I’m petites and trying to adjust a “tall” pattern, so I may have a dilemma on my hands

    Double-check your adjustments-maybe you altered one piece but not the other, thus the fit is not evident.

    The magazine patterns always require the sewer to add the corresponding seam allowances to the outline being traced for the pieces.

    I am tall, so I’m usually adding length to sleeves and the waistline. One shirt pattern that I recently used is being sought by a petite friend, so soon I will be scaling the pattern down in areas so that it suits her.

    I have always found this page from Burda magazine very useful to lengthen petite or shorten “tall” patterns: http://thecuriouskiwi.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/lenghten-shorten.jpg
