Free tutorial on how to lengthen a pattern piece sewing project

by Mayra Cecilia

It's easy to lengthen a sewing pattern piece. If you've never done it before, here are some pointers, you should give it a try.

There are three methods to modify a sewing pattern: the slash, the seam, and the pivot methods. All methods are good, but you need to learn when and how to use each.

So you would use this method if you just want the t-shirt longer without changing any of the other dimensions.
