Using a French Curve or sliding dinner plate, draw in the ARMSCYE curve so that it passes smoothly through the construction points I-N-Lsegment-Z-Tsegment-Y-X. This completes the basic bodice block up to the construction of the waist line. If the garment is to be finished at the waist, then one should proceed to the final two steps in which the waist darts are constructed.

    Uh oh… So my 4" shoulder length WX line doesn’t fall inside the line T… I have a 42 bust so I had to add extra length to the DF line, is the extra height of this line why my armscye curve doesn’t look like the one in the picture? Blurg. Lol. Any help would be appreciated!

      I had the same problem, only with the GI shoulder line. I was able to make it work by skipping point N in the curve. Try drawing a curve from X to the angled line by T, don’t worry about making it go through Y.
