Pivoting a Bodice Shoulder Dart to a Side Bust Dart

In this lesson, you will learn how to move your bodice sloper’s shoulder dart to the side seam to create a side bust dart bodice sloper, which, once it has been transferred to oaktag, will become one of your most used foundational slopers in your library. From this block you will be able to draft a variety of styles from blouses, dresses and jumpsuits.

The bodice sloper needed for this lesson can be found and drafted in our lesson: Drafting a Shoulder Dart Bodice Sloper from Measurements.
