Back Bodice Pattern
Draw a rectangle using the following measurements. Be sure to leave at least three centimetre margin around the rectangle. Point A-B = 1/4 bust circumference- 1 cm + 0.5 cm (for ease). Points A-C = back length. Now close of the rectangle making sure it is perfectly squared (each corner should be 90º angle)
From points C-E and D-F mark the side length measurement connect points E and F with the straight line.
From points A-H and E-G mark half the back width connect points H and G with the straight line.
From point A-I mark down about 1.5 – 2 cms. From point A-J mark one tenth the waist measurements. Connect point I-J with a slight curve. This is the neck hole of the bodice.
From point H down to K mark 4.5 cm. Draw a straight line from point J-K over marking K by 0.5 cm that slightly over so that it will be pointed at L.
Mark a 3 cm from point G-M. Now connect points F, M and L with a curve. This is the armhole for your bodice.
From point C-N mark 9.5 cm
From point N-O mark a perpendicular line 15 cms long. Mark 1.5 cm to either side of point N and connect both these points to point O with a straight line. This will be the back dart
From point C-P mark 1/4th of waist measurements - 1 cm + 3 cm - 0.5 cm. Connect points F-P with a straight line.
