Step 11 Draft front neckline

Step_11_large

We will now begin drafting the front of the bodice sloper. From E, measure across one-fifth of the neck measurement plus 0.7 cm and mark R. From E, measure down one-fifth of the neck measurement minus 0.2 cm and mark S. Square off 1.5 cm at S. Next, use your French curve (with the curly side at S) to connect to R, forming the front neckline.

    I got a set of French curves for Christmas, and I was floored at how pretty they are. What else can/do you use them for?

      I mainly use it to shape and modify armholes and necklines. You can also use it to shape dart legs.
