#1 Bodice with Bust Sloper Set

This is a traditional basic sloper set for an adult model with breasts. There is no ease added by default, nor any other adjustments. It is drafted precisely to a model's measurement set.

This garment is not intended to be worn. It is well suited for testing the measurements taken for a model. Use this set for fitting and fine tuning the measurement set. Once this fits well, all other patterns that contain a bodice and/or sleeve should draft error free.

There are no extensions for buttons or other closures.

There is a waist bust dart in the front. In the back, a shoulder dart will be added if determined to be necessary.

This garment includes the following patterns:

#03 Bodice Front Bust Sloper

This is a standard front bodice sloper intended for someone with a bust. The bust measurement needs to be greater than the waist for this draft to work correctly.

#04 Bodice Back Sloper

This is a standard back bodice sloper with a waist and shoulder dart.

The difference between the bust and waist is split, with half being taken up in the waist dart and the other half pulling in the side waist point.

A shoulder dart will be added, if the neck and shoulder width difference calls for it.

#14 Sleeve Sloper

This is a fitted sleeve basic sloper pattern. The wrist is curved and there is an elbow dart.
