Start with the back yoke piece. I lowered the neckline so that the yoke was 3" total. I forgot to leave in seam allowance though so make the yoke 3 5/8" tall. I eye-balled and drew a new neckline seam. Then trace the whole piece with the new neckline. Make sure you trace all the notes, circles, triangles, etc. Write Front on this piece.
Write Front on this piece. Remember to copy all the markings and also extend the center like we did on the front yoke piece. The two extensions should be identical.
This pattern piece measures 9 5/8" across.
All the pattern altering is done.
Wasn't that easy? The only thing to remember is when cutting out, you need two sleeves, two center fronts, two yoke fronts, 2 side fronts and 2 side backs (this is the same piece which we didn't alter), 1 yoke back on fold and 1 center back on fold.
Another thing to remember, this pattern calls for a lot of topstitching. If you want to make it easier, omit all topstitching.
