Convert Bodice Sloper to Fitted Torso Sloper
This lesson will teach you how to convert your bodice sloper to a torso sloper. A torso sloper, also known as a block, is the basic foundation for your blouse, dress and jacket designs. It is a ‘must-have’ item in your collection of blocks. Our method is fast and easy and designed to produce a great fitting result.
|The bodice sloper needed for this lesson can be found and drafted in our Pattern making lesson: Drafting a Shoulder Dart Bodice Sloper from Measurements. Or you can download and print our free graded Women’s Bodice Slopers (U.S. sizes 2-16) included in our lesson: Pivoting a Bodice Shoulder Dart to a Side Bust Dart.
