Constructing the Basic Bodice Block
Added Feb 22, 2009
Note that the process sounds complicated to describe, but it much easier to do than to explain. Also, if this is for your own bodice block, you may need to do this just once - if you draft onto a piece of cardboard, the resulting block can be re-used as a template time and again for any other manipulations. On the other hand, if you are making clothes for a range of people, experience will quickly render the process relatively painless and quick. It takes about 30 minutes to construct the block when you are used to the process. I have posted a "how to" of the process of adapting the block to develop a bra pattern. As I have time, I should be able to post additional manipulations for other patterns later. Enjoy!
