Pivoting a Torso Shoulder Dart to a Waist Dart
In this lesson you learn how to move your torso sloper’s front shoulder dart to a center waist dart. This block will be useful for creating dresses and a clean looking dress front, when you don’t want the look that a shoulder or a bust dart gives to your design.
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.
