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
RULER and TWO SHEETS OF PAPER
Remember to apply pressure to your slopers when tracing..
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.
The finished product!
