Block/s Used (Dress 003)

This dress has a princess line seam running from armhole to hem, therefore I had planned on using the Extended Line Dress block.  However in the end I decided to use just the (Sleeveless) Bodice Block (i.e. I don't need to use the Skirt Block).

I am using my personalised blocks in the instructions rather than the standard size 14 that I use for general instructions (e.g. in the Principles and Elements pages); since I am creating the garment for myself, I am using my blocks.  The Sleeveless block I use has my contour markings noted, although I only show the ones relevant to the pattern.

For instructions on how to create a personalised Bodice block to fit your individual figure, see the relevant pages under the Making Block Menu -  Making the Bodice Block Set.

Third Scale Blocks are available for download, so you can follow along and practice patternmaking theory without making the pattern full-size. Click on the link provided to be taken to the Third Scale Blocks page.  Before trying to make these patterns, even third scale, you should have a good understanding of the principles in the Principles Pages on this website.
