I am so pleased with myself. I wanted to reuse a pattern that I had previously cut out at a different size than I presently am. Some of the seamlines had been cut off, but I had saved and labeled the trimmed parts. Now, when I want to cut out a different size, I don't have to guess at the missing parts. I can just fit them back where they belong. It wouldn't matter much for leg widths, but crotch curves and waistbands can be tricky. Hope this helps someone else.

I always pin the "cut-off" bits to their given pattern pieces in case I need them.
