Coparing the fit of the basic slopers constructed using two different methods:
a) Bunka method – as described in the Bunka Fashion Series Textbook 1, published by the Bunka Fashion College in Japan.
b) Aldrich metod – as described in Metric Pattern Cutting by Aldrich

2. Slopers I drafted
3. Adjusting my brand new dress form
4. Comparing the two basic bodices
