#5 Bodice with Bust Torso Sloper Set

This is a hip length sloper used as a basis for jackets. It is derived from the standard front and back bodice slopers with a bust.

There are no extensions for buttons or other closures.

This garment includes the following patterns:

#18 Bodice Front Torso Sloper

This is a hip length sloper pattern with darts at the waist and shoulder.

This pattern begins as a standard front bodice sloper with a bust dart at the waist. The pattern is extended to the hip line. The waist dart fullness is divided in two, with half of it left at the waist and the rest transferred to the shoulder. There are sharp transitions that should be converted to curves for smooth seams.

#21 Bodice Back Torso Sloper Bust

This is a hip length back sloper pattern with a double dart at the waist. There is also a dart at the shoulder, if the neck and shoulder width difference calls for it.

This pattern begins as the standard back sloper draft. The pattern is extended to hip length. The double dart is created as a transition from the bust to the waist and then to the hip. There are sharp transitions that should be converted to curves for smooth seams.

#24 Sleeve 2pc Sloper

This is a two-piece sleeve pattern with an over-sleeve and under-sleeve. There are sharp transitions that should be converted to curves for smooth seams.

Some modification on the seam allowance may be necessary, as shown in the sample image above.

There is excess length in the over-sleeve elbow area that should be eased into the seam to the under-sleeve.
