first we had to cut a piece of calico to the right size and then pin it to the tailors bust and start to add darts in to try fit it to the shape.
Centre front line.
pinned the shoulder back and then cut away the calico to the required length.
Added the two darts to the front bodice to make it fit the bust.
Then same with the back, adding only one dart this time.
And then adding the second dart to the back of the garment.
Now i have started to drape my material over the bust to come up with design ideas.
