Here is a tutorial on altering a basic bodice pattern (with vertical waist darts and horizontal bust darts) into a "leaf" pleated bodice. For this tutorial I used the JJ bodice sloper pattern you can download from this site.
The idea is to show you an easy altering technique I used when drafting my "Do you like peaches?" dress. You will get the best results if you start with a basic pattern you already tired, and that fits you well.
This dress was featured in the Feb/March 2011 issue of the SewNews magazine. There I explained to details how to draft the whole pattern. Read the article here
