This is another tutorial on how to draft a pattern for a sleeveless top starting from a sloper. As opposed to the A-line top from the first tutorial (From sloper to A-line sleeveless top) this one has less flare but it is still loose fitting enough to require no zippers or buttons. Also, the neckline is a bit deeper, both front and back. This top could easily be lengthen to make a dress – the dress would have some flare but would not be “tent like” (as if you lengthened the A-line top).
