The bodice base pattern is constructed using the measurements of the future wearer. It defines the volume from the bust down to the large hips and a small amount of ease value is added. This file has been carefully put together with clear and precise explanations and accompanying sketches to help you make the bodice in full understanding of the construction method for a top-of-the-range result. Several types of sleeves and collars can be adapted to this base pattern in order to transform the bodice into other garments, for example shirts, dresses, jackets, coats and bustiers, and always in compliance with a predefined set of measurements of your choice.
