Blouse Shell/Sloper

Hello: first let me give Paco, Cenetta and Elaray a big "shout out for visiting. It is wonderful to know that you guy take the time to stop by. Thank you so very much.

I am working on a basic shell for a blouse that will eventually become my sloper to draft blouses,vest,jacket and the top of a dress.This is a time consuming process, but well wort the time it takes, because once the sloper is completed it will be very easy to alter pattern and make design changes. The photos below were my first fitting.


I relieved some of the wrinkles by loosening the center back. Its much better. I need to drop the armhole because it is somewhat uncomfortable. I also need to do a swayback adjustment.

The front shell needs some work.

Thanks for the shout out. I'm a fan, of course, and enjoy reading your blog. You are making great progress on your sloper. As I was trying to decide what to wear to church tomorrow, making a bodice sloper for myself ran across my mind. I have to make similar adjustments to the one you describe in this post. Fitting is time consuming, but I think it's well worth it. It will save time in the long run. It will be interesting to see your final sloper.
