Video: How to Make the Basic Bodice Block Back (UPDATED) Imperial Measurements

Note that there is an error in this video at (mins) 3:23 mins. From G1 to H should be your Shoulder Length + 0.5 inch dart. (If you follow the instructions as is, you will end up with Back Shoulder Length shorter than the Front Shoulder Length. At some point I will redo the video and correct this mistake.

There is another mistake in this video which means you will end up with your side seam about 1 inch too short.  The details of the mistake and some corrected instructions (written until I have time to redo the videos) can be found here.

As of 12 September 2021, and I have written the explanation of the problem and the Bodice Front corrections.  I will finish the Bodice Back corrections as soon as I can.

You draft the shoulder length the same front and back, then add a dart to the back shoulder without increasing the length. How can they then match up when you true the patterns?

My shoulders are about an inch larger than my across back measure, so point "N" is too far away from point "I" to make the armhole curve gradual. I thought this would be fine until I trued the armholes and they did not curve smoothly. If I have to fix this, how do I do so?

Hi Sophia,

Can you take a photo of what you have drafted so far and upload it, together with the measurements you are using for your block?
