Adding ease to the hips of the WRCT

Adding ease to a pattern with a plani and separate front and back piece is pretty straight forward. Things become a little more complicated when the pattern is color blocked, and when one of the color blocks wraps around from the back to the front of the shirt, all bets are off. 

The WRCT is one of my favorite patterns, but it is also one of the most difficult to grade out at the hips. Many people size up entirely, which works but is not ideal. In this blog post, I will show you how easy it can be to add ease to the hips of this fan favorite.
