Drafting Instructions for Women's Front Bodice Sloper

All measurements are to be taken with the customer wearing foundation garments.
NOTE: there are NO allowances for seams; seam allowances are to be added later.
NOTE 2: wearing ease is not included, because a sloper, by definition, is a pattern for a garment that fits like a "second skin", with no room allowed for breathing, movement, etc. Wearing ease is to be added later.
