So far in her pattern drafting series, Justine from Sew Country Chick has shown how to drape a front and back fitted bodice. For making a looser fitting shirt with no dart, you’ll need to make a dartless shirt block. Actually, if your bust size is a C or higher, you will need to include a small dart in order for it to fit smoothly at the armhole. She shares a tutorial showing how to make the dartless (or small darted) bodice. She also shows how to move a dart so it comes out from the side rather than from the armhole. Go to Sew Country Chick for the tutorial.
