Pattern Maker Sloper ... Revisited

I put together the second version of the PM bodice this afternoon.... I think the overall fit came out better this time, but there were two major fitting issues that must be addressed in the next attempt...

The first of which being the Bust Dart....

... the second issue being the Shoulder line.... the way its calculated, the front bodice is pushing too far past the mid shoulder point.
But the neck was perfect this time. And the sleeve actually fit quite well... better than any fitted sleeve from a commercial pattern that wasn't adjusted first!

.... I still have to say, for a free piece of software, its a major score!! I'll keep you posted on the next version.

Holla!

That looks great! I know I should be working on a sloper also, on my to-do list.

The fit is looking great! Funny how getting those bust darts right makes all the difference in the world. Thanks for keeping us posted.
