Drafting The Front Bodice Nº 3




Drafting A Front Bodice Sloper

Using the measurements taken from the dress form, the front bodice sloper is drawn according to the following diagram. The drawing to fit the BJD will be made, step-by-step. There are about 26 steps to drafting the front bodice sloper, in Modern Pattern Design by Harriet Pepin (1942).



From: Modern Pattern Design by Harriet Pepin, 1942. http://vintagesewing.info/1940s.html

Read each step carefully!

11. 7-8 — From point 7, square a line downward from the line 6-7. This line should be extended to intersect with the horizontal guide line from A. Mark intersection point of these two guide lines 8






12. 6-C — From point 6, measure off a line 4 inches long to locate point 6 to fall somewhere on guide line 3. (This proportion is standard on all full size patterns.) Label point C.






13. C-9 — From point C, measure off a line to fall somewhere on guide line 5 equal to the Shoulder Height Measurement less the 4 inch amount just used in locating point C. Mark point 9.






14. 9-10 — Starting from point 9, measure upward along line 5 a distance equal to the Side Bodice Length measurement given in the chart. Mark that point 10.
