Drafting a Shoulder Dart Bodice Sloper from Measurements
In this lesson, you will learn how to draft a tight-fitting block, known as a ‘moulage’ or mold, from actual body measurements. You will also learn how to add ease to convert the moulage to a sleeveless bodice sloper or for use with a sleeve. These slopers will become the foundation for many of your future designs. Before you begin this lesson, view our video entitled, Measuring the Female Body, to become familiar with how to measure different parts of the body. We also provide a series of diagrams and charts, to assist you with key measuring points and in the drafting of this lesson. Once you have drafted and fit your moulage, we will teach you how to transfer it to oaktag and then how to add ease to create a sleeveless bodice and one with sleeve ease, so that you will be able to move on to our dart manipulation series.
The bodice sloper needed for this lesson can be found and draped in our Draping lesson: Side Bust Dart Bodice with Back Neck Dart. And the straight sleeve sloper needed can be found and drafted in our lesson: Straight Sleeve Sloper.
