I’m currently using the book: “patternmaking for fashion design 5th.edition”. I’ve managed to draft and make a basic bodice based on my personal measurement.
One thing is really troubling me being that the author ask for us to measure a front/back measurement separately, for example the shoulder line.
But what happens is that the front and the back shoulder line does not match! I know from human anatomy that the back shoulder line is definitely longer than the front, but if you have the back shoulder line way longer than the front shoulder line, how are we even suppose to sew it together? Not to say the possibility that the whole bodice might be slanted after sewing it that way.
I hope anyone that have used the book or just pretty good with patternmaking can tell me if this is normal and if I could just continue using this method in the book. Thanks!
