Drafting the Sheath Dress

Using the hip-length dress foundation as shown in the supplementary revised edition of the sub-teens and teens or the junior’s misses and women’s sizes, draft pattern as follows:

1 – Bolero

For semi-fitted bolero, trace front & back to
waistline only, and eliminate the waist darts; then reduce 1/2" at sides of waistline, and draw curved outline in front as shown by dotted lines.

Instead of the 1/4" ease on back shoulder seam, make a dart . . .
