Armhole Dart Bodice – Boat Neckline

This lesson will teach you how to design a boat neck bodice with an armhole dart. Building upon our Basic Bodice lesson, you will learn how to manipulate the dart fullness, to create a bodice where the dart is less prominent. You will be inspired to design your own back for this bodice and then have fun transforming it into a dress, a top or even a jumpsuit.
