This is a casual bodice sloper meant for children. The shirt will draft to the hip level.

There is no ease added to this draft. Use the bust/chest ease and across back ease values to add wearing or design ease.

You can adjust the armhole drop, which is 1/2" / 1.5cm by default. This is suggested for heights of 31.5-45.5" / 80-116cm. Increase to 0.6" / 1.75 for heights of 48-55" / 122-140cm and .75" / 2cm for heights over 57.5" / 146.

If a sleeve length isn't specified, it will draft to the full overarm length. The sleeve cap length will be drafted to match the armhole curve length from the front and back bodice patterns. The wrist width is determined by the wrist measurement.
