  • Ensure shoulder darts are centered.
  • Square all corners 1/4 to1/2″
  • Drag waist shaping to perimeter lines of pattern
  • Redraw any lines that change length.
  • Redraw any curves that change due to above actions.
  • Note about ARMSCYE DART
    • Sleeveless garments always fold out but
    • Sleeved garments are usually more comfortable  if this dart is left unsewn
