Making your own bodice pattern is easier than you think. This helpful video tutorial shows you how to draft a bodice pattern that will fit you perfectly. If you're looking for ways to take your homemade clothes to the next level, this is it!

Watch the video to explore exactly how this is done and be sure to visit the blogger's site listed below for even more tips and tricks.

From the Blogger: "I have created a video tutorial on how you can draft your own bodice block/bodice sloper. I’ve tried to keep this tutorial simple, using as little body measurements as possible to create this sloper. The bodice incorporates the necessary wearing ease needed for the bodice to fit.

A bodice block is used as a starting point for designing garments. Once you have a sloper that fits well, you’ll be able to use it to make anything you want. This sloper can be used alongside the other tutorials found on my blog, where you’ll be able to learn a lot about pattern making."
