This lesson will teach you how to drape the basic bodice. This introductory lesson would be the first draping lesson that you would complete if you were studying at a fashion college.
This lesson incorporates all of the fundamental pre-draping procedures, including measuring the dress form to prepare your muslin blocks, measuring, tearing, blocking and pressing your muslin pieces and the importance of adding guidelines for balancing the grain as you drape. You will learn how to manipulate the muslin on the dress form to create your 3D draped pattern and then how to mark the drape before transferring it to the table for trueing. In addition to learning how to drape, you will learn all about the tools and how to use them, so that the result is a perfect fitting bodice sloper.
This sloper can later be used as the foundation for many of your pattern making projects or you can attach the bodice to a skirt to create a cute dress style.
