Constructing the Basic Bodice Block
Added Feb 22, 2009
Draw a shallow upward curve from point A to point G - this is the back neck line. To draw the curve, if you don't own a French Curve (an extremely useful instrument for pattern making), you may use a dinner plate, but you will need to slide the plate along - draw a small segment, then slide the plate along and draw in the next segment, until you are able to reproduce the shape of the curve shown. This may take some practice on a separate piece of paper first.
