You can use this method with any pattern, but I am going to show you here with a basic bodice block. You can make it (here:http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/constructing-the-basic-bodice-block or here:http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/basic-bodice-block/technique_steps/1 ) or print it (here:http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/basic-bodice-size-uk-10-us-8-eu-38 ). I am showing variations with the shoulder dart, but you can do the same thing with the waist dart, or both at the same time. But remember that a dart that is too big may distort the shape of your top. On this sloper, you need to mark the bust line - line that connects the highest point of your bust, should be a little lower than the sleeve And the breadth line - from underarm to underarm, above the breasts.
This collection will make you shine in front of the camera!
