Custom Neckline Pattern Making Tutorial
In this tutorial, I will show you how to draft a series of simple custom necklines for the front and back of your bodice or torso block. Please note, all of our pattern cutting tutorials require you to download your custom basic blocks as an ePattern. The fact that they are simple or basic, does not limit us in the slightest. It is simply amazing how many different front and back custom necklines that can be created using a few simple measurements such as, the Shoulder Width, Front Neck Drop and Back Neck Drop. I’ll also show you how to add a bit of shaping using curves.
