The pattern was added to your Sewing Patterns.
"It's easy to lengthen a sewing pattern piece. If you've never done it before, 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. The subject is so vast I could write a whole book about it –and some people have. In the tutorial below, I'm going to show you the slash method and I will be covering how to lengthen a pattern piece without touching the dart. So you would use this method if you just want the t-shirt longer without changing any of the other dimensions."
