New Technique: Adapting a Pattern with the Slash and Spread Method

So far I have never really dared to adapt  a pattern beyond taking it in or letting it out a little. My figure seems to be pretty standard in a Burdastyle kind of way, so I never had to do an FBA or a swayback adjustment or all those other standard alterations. But I think it is a useful skill to have, and I jumped at the chance to change the length – on one side only – of the asymmetric pattern #135 of Burdastyle 2/2014.

Here is some photographic proof of slashing and spreading:

And here the final result:
