Back to the contour darts. I took the path of least resistance. I went through my patterns to see which had back darts. I decided to go with New Look 6945. I simply traced the darts from that pattern onto the new pattern. How's that for winging it?

When I trace my top patterns, I usually trace the side cutting lines for small-XL.
Then I tissue fit.
Here we go. Not bad. Certainly not perfect but, not bad.
