MODULE 1 • Dress Form Prep

Step Description
1 We will begin this lesson by applying style tape to both sides of the dress form’s neckline. Here we have determined that our V-neck line drop will be 9” (22.9cm) down from the base of the neck, at center front.
2 The style tape for the neck width is positioned on both sides of the dress form at 3 ½” (8.9cm) from the neckline at the shoulder.
3 Your neck style tape connects to the neck drop on both sides of the dress form.
