Jumpy, shortening/lengthening

list In Alterations & Pattern hackings On

The Jumpy pants/shorts are drafted for an average hight of 165 cm so if you differ from that, you might need to do some pattern adjustments. Lengthening and shortening your pattern pieces is pretty straighforward, find the lengthen/shorten line and apply your length changes between them.


1 - Select, print and cut the pattern pieces to your size. 

2 - Cut along the shorten/lengthen line, separating the pattern into two pieces.

3 - Lay a sheet of paper down with the pattern pieces on top of it and line up the pattern's grain lines. Tape your pattern pieces down to the paper (or, if shortening, to each other).

4 -  Blend the curve or straight edge to connect either edge of the pattern. Cut your new pattern piece.

Repeat for the pocket facing (C) and pocket lining (D).
