Step 1

On a copy of back and front, adjust length to 10 to 15cm above the knee, cut through the new hemline, then draw a line 5cm above hipline as the imaginary level for yoke.

Square down from dart apexes to the new horizontal line.

Step 2

Draw the weaved line for yoke from hipline to the new line above the hips – try to have smooth and similar curves on all sections.

Cut through the weaved line and the vertical slash line, discarding dart volume.

Step 3

By cutting through the lines, you get:

  • 2 back yoke pieces
  • back bottom piece
  • 2 front yoke pieces
  • front bottom piece.

On both bottom pieces, draw a horizontal line 5cm below hipline and cut through it.
