The instructions in this volume show how to take the measurements for a Bodice Sloper and then draft it. Three patterns are included: a man's front pattern; a back pattern for men and women; and a woman's front pattern. The Bodice Sloper is also referred to as the Upper Torso Sloper.

Instructions include how to take the measurements in a two person or a one person, do-it-yourself (DIY), process. Since each body's contours are unique, darts are not included for the initial paper pattern.


The YouTube videos below were prepared for my online patternmaking classes. They are now available in this Interactive e-Book and represent the other videos you will find in Volume 5.
