    Hi
    I am using size 12 for this blouse and have shortened by 1” equally for all pieces of the pattern. When I match up the notches to check the length of the pieces, I found that there is a difference. I have attached a photo here circling the length difference. May I know what I did wrong? I have checked that I have cut the right size 12 for all pieces.

    Lining up the raw edges flat like that doesn’t represent what happens when you stitch. What you need to look at is the stitching lines.
    With a 1/2″ seam allowance you should overlap those pattern pieces so there’s 1″ of double pattern.
    Does that make the edges meet properly?
    It’s a slightly curved seam, so there’ll be a little bit of angle change at the hem line, but not a step like this.
    Place these pattern pieces right side together and pin along the 2/2″ stitching line and see if you still have an issue.
    Good luck, it’s a lovely blouse!
