Bodice Slopers

Choose a bodice sloper based on your child’s chest measurement.  Measure snugly over the child’s underclothes and use that measurement to determine which basic bodice pattern to use. Patterns have 10% wearing ease in the chest and waist.

-Sizes that have a larger chest than waist measurement (sizes 3 and up) have a waist dart.

-Files are available in .pdf (non-editable) for paper pattern drafting, .ai or .svg for digital drafting.

*The chest and waist numbers in the charts below are body measurements. Back length is from the base of the neck to the waist at center back.
