Lengthening the Ultraviolet Tee (option 1)

If you’re not keen on the “slightly cropped” aspect of View A of the Ultraviolet Tee (or if you have a particularly long torso) but you want to keep the gentle curve on the front and back and the scoop on the side, this is how you go about lengthening your pattern pieces. This is also the same process for lengthening View B.

Since the pattern pieces are essentially straight at the sides, it’s just about as easy as can be to make the pattern longer.
1 – Cut the pattern along the lengthen/shorten line on both the Front and Back.
2 – Separate the pattern pieces the amount you would like to lengthen the shirt. 2-3 inches will bring the shirt down to a non-cropped length (like the sample shirt pictured in this post).
3 – Connect the pattern pieces and fill in the gap.
