This is the Basic Bodice Block resulting from the companion "How To" ("Constructing the Basic Bodice Block"). In principle, if you followed the instructions, this shape will be cut out of paper or cardboard and can be used to trace around. For the construction of the sleeve, you will need to trace on top of this shape, either by copying the shape to a new large piece of paper or cardboard, or by using a tracing paper overlay.
