The need to reduce the waist line of the product is detected, as a rule, when the dummy (see Rinok 30 in the article, Fitting layout, figure 69 and 70 in the article clarification of the basic patterns after fitting).
Skirt, part of which is shown in figure 259 and 260, is a continuation of the bodice, and a fit is provided by one or two Darts and waist.
If the waist line of bodice and skirt in the product coincide, it is enough to set a new waist line regardless, cutting the product at the waist or not. If the new waist of the skirt is not at the same time waistline of the bodice, the product, cut at the waist combined, combining both of these lines (see figure 259 and 260), solid line — the waist line of the bodice, the dashed line the waist of the skirt).
Clothes that are not cut at the waist line, such a situation is not always possible. So, in the products of adjacent silhouette lowering can only be performed, if you make a terrain from the line of openings and the relief along the line of the middle of the back (figure 261).
For the execution patterns shown in figure 261, refer to figure 122 the article Tuck from the line of openings, turning into relief.
Specify the direction of the grain lines on both parts of the patterns. If the pattern basics you need to lower the waistline, follow this decrease, as shown in figure 261. Draw this decrease in private Darts. Put the notch x and o, as shown in figure 261, and translate this pattern three times to consider the three main types of clothing having different degree of fit.
Dress tight-fitting silhouette with yoke at the depth of the armhole (figure 262). Take one of the three translated templates, cut it out, as shown in figure 262. Spend, not cutting, the Basque line on both patterns. Connect the waist line on both pieces of the patterns, eliminating the fall (the notch x and o). This will cause an offset previously designated by the direction of grain lines on the bodice or skirt.
As for the dress tight-fitting silhouette skirt is the main part of the skirt is necessary to maintain the original direction of the grain lines. On the details of the patterns, place a ruler along the direction of the grain lines marked on the skirt, and draw a straight bodice in this direction (see a solid line; the dashed line shows the old direction of the grain lines).
