All of our bodies are beautiful and different. This advanced class will help each student create a custom Body Blueprint of their torso. The individual Body Blueprint will be used to make future adjustments to commercial patterns for shirts and dresses. Whether you have a full bust, broad shoulders, sway back, whatever! Each student will take a series of detailed measurements of their torso. These measurements will be used to draft a custom bodice sloper. We will cut and sew a cotton muslin mock up of the sloper to test the fit. Once the fit is PERFECT, Students will be able to manipulate their sloper to create custom patterns or they can use the sloper as a tool to alter commercial patterns. SLOPER ? This term is used to define a pattern for any object which does not have seam allowance.
