Princess Line Bodice… How to Begin

As of now, you have created a bodice pattern with darts…
Remember what a DART is? CLICK HERE!
What if you DON’T want a dart?
How about a PRINCESS?? What’s that, you ask? CLICK HERE!

LET’s BEGIN the Princess DRAFT

You will need:
FRONT BODICE SLOPER
BACK BODICE SLOPER
PENCIL
ERASER
RULER and TWO SHEETS OF PAPER

Remember to apply pressure to your slopers when tracing..

Then..

You will NEED to find the MIDDLE of the Shoulder Line and connect to the APEX point of the dart to establish the Princess Line of BOTH front and back

Label pieces accordingly with accurate terms: Center Front – Princess Front + Center Back – Princess Back
MAKE SURE YOU LABEL CORRECTLY – Ms. CHAVEZ LABELED the PIECES INCORRECTLY!
Check for ACCURACY by folding ONE shoulder line and matching it to the other shoulder line.
Your Princess Lines at the shoulder must match, along with Necklines and Armholes.

And Lastly….

The finished product!

Remember:

  • Take a picture of TRACED SLOPERS
  • Take a picture of Princess Lines DRAWN IN and pieces LABELED
  • Take a picture of Princess pieces cut out

That’s a TOTAL of 3 IMAGES to be saved in your NEW DIGITAL FOLDER titled ‘Princess and Darts’
