Fitting Full, High Hips
submitted by Susan Hutchins
from Threads #119
I used to follow the method of blending to a smaller size at the waist from the full hip on multisized patterns, but never got a good fitting result. The side seam always had a funny angle to it. I have found that I get a much smoother and better-fitting garment by cutting the pattern the same size from hip to waist at the side seam, and then adding a second dart at the waist.
