This is a basic blouse block, custom constructed for a woman with a 36 inch bust, 35 inch chest, 32 inch waist, a 14 inch nape to waist measurement, and an 8.5 inch waist to hip measurement. The bodice block (the term used for this kind of pre-pattern template) shown does not include the waist darts. Details on constructing a basic bodice block from an arbitrary set of measurements will be provided in a second "How To" - this one used the process described in the Aldrich book given as a reference.
