The dartless basic bodice block is generally used to make loose fitting garments. This type of block is a foundation block that can be adapted and developed in flat patternmaking to create endless designs for both woven and knitted fabrics.
So many drafting methods require you to take so many measurements and this can make the drafting process become more complicated. Moreover, some of those measurements recommended are usually easier to achieve on a mannequin or body form but a lot more difficult to achieve accurately on the human body.
Hence at Pattern Academy, we try to simplify the drafting process by using minimum number of measurements which will be strategically applied to calculate and obtain other necessary measurements needed to achieve a good personal fit.
