This is a more fitted free bodice sloper pattern for adults with an X build. What is a sloper?

The length will be at hip level. there is a mid-shoulder dart on the back pattern and a bust dart at the center front neck point on the front pattern.

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

The one-piece sleeve is drafted precisely using the armhole curves. If a sleeve length isn't specified, it will draft to the full overarm length.

The ease in the sleeve cap is drafted for a rounded appearance. The value of ease is determined by the hip measurement, adding more ease as the size increases.

The amount of sleeve cap ease is displayed on the pattern so you know how much it exceeds the length of the bodice armholes.
