What advice would you give someone starting this project? Measure you child-1- where you want top, waist or hip 2- hip 3- top to ankle 4- top to bottom of knee. I used 1/2 seam allowance, only one seam on one side. To cut V, I found middle of front & back, marked. then mark 1/2 each side of center mark. On each side, measure from top down your #4 measurement & mark where bottom of knee hits. use ruler to drawl line from side to center mark 1/2 out from center. This is your V cut ine where you sew on fin.
