Manipulating Darts - Bodice Front

Bodice Front Style A (Block)

The bodice of this garment has one dart in the waist. This bodice is actually a 3-D version of the flat 1-Dart Bodice Block that is used on this website. The Blocks are named Style A & Style B to differentiate the blocks from the other Styles (Style-01 to Style-44).

Flat Block vs Technical Flat

Figure 1:  On the left is the 1-Dart Block, with the dart open .  On the right is the Technical Flat of that block; a 3D representation with the dart closed.  The blocks are always shown as half the body, as the basic pattern is symmetrical.
