Flat Derriere

To alter the pattern to fit snugly around the back, cut directly down the back dart to the hemline and then cut the hipline from the inner pattern piece. Overlap both pieces, shortening and bringing in the pattern the required amount. Re-draw the seam-lines smoothly. The dart will be smaller than before.
