reposting. (Initially posted on wrong section)

Everything I know about sewing has come from Google, books or youtube, so most projects (I made a corset, once!) I'm usually confused and most likely finished by sheer luck . :)

I bought a Uniquely You form and am fitting the cover. For those who may not know, the cover is fitted from the "right side" not inside out. Things were going good. I pinched and pinned the bust area but then....

How do you transfer the pinched to the wrong side for sewing?

While it's still pinned turn it inside out and mark with the side of a pencil the pinned area, once everything has been marked remove the pins, and smooth out the jagged marks with a french curve or hip curve. This will be your sewing line.
