Patternmaking Basics: The Bodice Sloper

with Suzy Furrer
Patternmaking Basics: The Bodice Sloper
Accelerate your fashion design evolution. Create a moulage and use it to make a custom-fit bodice sloper — the foundation for personalized patternmaking.

Take your fashion design education to the next level in this follow-up to Patternmarking Basics: The Skirt Sloper. With Apparel Arts founder Suzy Furrer, you'll create a moulage, or a precise fabric blueprint of the upper body. Learn to draft both your front and back moulage based on accurate measurements, cut your muslin and assemble it. Then you'll go step-by-step through refining the fit. With your moulage patterns perfectly customized, you'll put them to use as you find out how to make a bodice sloper, complete with wearing ease. Suzy will even discuss design options that can be created from your bodice sloper, and how to transform your woven sloper into a knit sloper.

Sign up for both of our basic patternmaking classes and save $50, or 36%.

"I've got too many pattern drafting books to count, but few of them explain the process nearly as clearly as Suzy does! For me, a Craftsy aficionado and an engineer, Suzy has taken pattern drafting from magic to logic!!"
