a basic bodice you can design virtually any kind of t-shirt, blouse or other top! Take your measurments by using the guide in the "How to Take Your Measurements" section (I work in centimeters) and let´s get started! BACK BODICE PATTERN:

Draw a rectangle using the following measurements. Be sure to leave at least a 3 cm margin around the rectangle. Point 1 to 2 = ¼ bust circumference - 1 cm + 0.5 cm (for ease). Points 1 to 3 = back length. Now close off the rectangle making sure it is perfectly squared (each corner should be a 90º angle). From Points 3 to 5 and 4 to 6 mark the side length measurement. Connect points 5 and 6 with a straight line. From Points 1 to 8 and 5 to 7 mark half the back width. Connect points 8 and 7 with a straight line.

From Point 3 to 5 and 4 to 6 mark the side length.5cm.5 to 2 cms. 13 and 12 with a curve. From Point 1 to 10 mark one-tenth the waist measurement. From Point 2 to 8 and 6 to 7 mark in 5 cms.5 cms to either side of point 14 and connect both these points to point 15 with straight lines. Note: this rectangle is NOT the same size as the one for the back pattern. Connect Points 6 to 16 with a straight line. . Draw a straight line from point 10 to 11 overshooting 11 by 0.5 cm (for ease).1cm + 3cm .From Point 1 to 9 mark down about 1. Mark up 3 cms from Point 7 to 13. It is probably a bit longer and wider. This is the armhole for your bodice. Connect point 7 to 8 with a straight line. Connect points 5 and 6 with a straight line. Now close off the rectangle making sure it is perfectly squared (each corner should be a 90º angle). From Point 3 to 16 mark ¼ of the waist measurement . This will be the back dart. Now connect Points 6. From Point 14 to 15 mark a perpendicular line 15 cms long.5 cm. FRONT BODICE PATTERN Draw a rectangle using the following measurements: Point 1 to 2 = ¼ bust measurement + 1cm + 0. Mark 1. This is the neckhole for the bodice. That slight overshoot will be Point 12. Connect point 9 to 10 with a slight curve.5.5 cms.0. From Point 3 to 14 mark 9. Point 1 to 3 = front waist length. From Point 7 to 9 mark up 6 cms. From Point 8 down to 11 mark 4.

5 cms. Mark 1. Connect Points 12.) From Point 3 to 16 mark in to the same measurement as 5 to 13. folding the flap in the back towards the armhole. From Point 1 to 11 apply one-tenth the waist measurement. (This is the front dart. From Point 2 to 12 move down 9 cms. Connect both points 14 and 15 to point 13 using straight lines. This is the armhole. Close the shoulder dart. From Point 5 to 13 mark ½ the bust separation. Then from Point 14 move down another 6 cms and mark that Point 15. Connect point 11 to 12 with a straight line. .5 cms to either side of point 16 and connect both those points to point 17. 9 and 6 witha curve. From Point 3 to 18 apply ¼ waist + 3 cms + 0. Tape it shut then redraw the shoulder line. 6 cms deep. This is the waist dart. (Explained in Lesson 2).From Point 1 to 10 apply one-tenth the waist measurement + 1 cm. This line should be 15 cms long. Connect points 10 to 11 with a curve. Draw a vertical line Point 16 to 17. From Point 11 to 14 mark down 5 cms. This is the front neckhole. Cut straight across the new shoulder line. Cut out the pattern EXCEPT leave the 3 cm margin at the top shoulder. Connect Point 18 to 6 with a straight line.
