Justine from Sew Country Chick is making me want to get a dress form! Her newest series is all about draping and drafting your own patterns. Today, she shows how to drape a front bodice and turn it into a sloper. (Tomorrow, she’ll show how to make the back bodice sloper.) Her tutorial gives photos at each step, taking you from a piece of fabric on a dress form to a basic bodice pattern you can use as a basis for endless pattern variations. Go to Sew Country Chick to get her tutorial.
