This is a bodice back sloper that fits to the hips and is based on the simple #4 back bodice. This is very form fitting and should follow the lines of the body well. There is a double dart from the bust to the waist and ending at the hips. If the shoulder length exceeds 1/4" / 6mm in excess, then a shoulder dart will be added.

This is intended for use as a fitting sloper, so there are no ease amounts added by default. The default seam allowance is generous. You have the option of making a number of variable value changes, including ease and seam allowance.

This is drafted to be sewn with a center back seam for fitting purposes. The two lines down the side of the body should be softened into a curve. After adjustments, make sure the length still matches the front bodice side length.
