    Very good instructions! It would be nice in written instructions as well, with photos.

    You would need to fold the darts on the new paper pattern to make sure the side seam/hemline was straight before cutting off the excess at the seam portion of the dart. If you cut your muslin on Jill's new guidelines you would be lacking a little fabric at the seam once the darts were sewn.

    I have just joined and haven't asked the question, how do you make this adjustment with only a side dart on the pattern?

    I'd like to know how to do an extra large full bust adjustment for larger than a D cup. It would be nice to hear from the designers who design for full busted stars like Dolly Parton.
