There are a couple of different ways you could place seams on a torso. For example, Pior often tends to place his seams on one side of the torso so that it flips open like a book, while Vahl prefers to place the seam down the middle of the back. You can also split it in four parts, as I did here, and there are some other solutions as well. So the actual layout doesn’t really matter all that much, but you need enough seams to flatten it all.
(That same goes for other things; do you split a hand in two, or do you keep the sides connectec at the thumb or pinky? Do you place a seam on the hairline horizontally, so that they follow the split between forehead and hair, or do you place them vertically, so that it’s less easy to spot but harder to paint?)
