MODULE 1 • Lesson Prep

Step Description
1 To begin this lesson, trace your front jacket torso sloper onto a piece of pattern paper twice the width and 10” (25.4cm) longer than your sloper. Position the front sloper on the paper, as demonstrated.
2 Draw a line extending from the bust level onto the blank area of the paper. We will be transferring the bust dart a little bit to the center front, since we will be drafting a double-breasted garment and additional ease is required on the front.
3 Cut into the extended bustline to within 1/16” (2mm) of the vanishing point of the side bust dart.
