Drafting a Tent Dress
In this lesson, you learn how to draft tent dress using your front and back shoulder dart torso sloper. We will teach you how to pivot the shoulder darts to create fullness and then how to balance the side seam, an important technique that you will use to perfect any of your patterns where flares are involved.
|The sloper needed for this lesson can be found and drafted in our Pattern making lesson: Drafting a Shoulder Dart Bodice Sloper from Measurements, then converted to a fitted torso sloper in our lesson: Convert Bodice Sloper to Fitted Torso Sloper or draped in our lesson: Fitted Torso Sloper and then transferred into oaktag in our lesson: Transfer Torso Sloper to Oaktag.|
