This is a bodice back sloper that fits to the hips and is based on the simple #4 back bodice. The pattern is split on the princess line, which runs from the side neck point to the bust apex to the waist and ending at the hip. These points follow the darts of a torso bust sloper and are based on that pattern.

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. You should also soften the points on the princess line in the middle to create a gentle curve.
