Drafting a Child’s Shirt

Drafting a Child’s Shirt

Once you have viewed our child’s torso and sleeve lessons, and created your slopers, you are now ready to draft a child’s button-through shirt. You will learn how to draft a collar, a front placket and a sleeve with a flattened cap.

The slopers needed for this lesson can be found and drafted in our draping lesson: Draping a Child’s Bodice Sloper or  downloaded, printed and cut-out from the 2-6X Child Bodice Sloper Nest provided in our lesson: Draping a Child’s Bodice Sloper. This bodice is then converted to a child’s torso sloper in our lesson: Drafting a Child’s Torso Sloper.

The child sleeve needed for his lesson can be found and drafted in our lesson: Child Oaktag Sleeve Sloper.
