Size 9 Bodice Sloper Muslin

 This is the sixth in a series of muslins sewn from unaltered slopers.  Our bodice slopers are now available in .ai and .svg as well as in .pdf.

Size 9 Bodice Sloper

Model Specs:
Chest: 27"
Waist: 23.5"

Sloper Specs:
Chest: 27"
Waist: 23.5"

This sloper fits my 12-year-old well through the chest and shoulders, but would need to be lengthened in the arms and waist were I making a shirt for him.  Those are easy fixes; getting a good chest and shoulder fit is most important.  

In some of these views I'm seeing stress lines coming from his shoulders. It might be best to go up a size for him.
