I am using a simplicity pattern which has petite lines for shortening the pattern. I am not sure if I fold the pattern at the solid lines to the dotted line or fold the pattern at the dotted line and pleat it till I just see the solid line. The first one is defiinitely a smaller fold than the second. Any help would be wonderful. Thanks.

Fold it as much or as little as you need. The lines are a guide as to the best place to petite or lengthen the pattern. The amount is entirely up to your measurements.

What misschris said. Also, I will divide my shortening above and below a point on the body. For example, I'll shorten the bodice between the bust and shoulder, and between the bust and waist. I am a proportioned petite.
