I've seen a lot of pictures of bodice slopper on pinterest with this breast circle. How do you draft it? My logic is telling me that u need the high breast measurement and low breast measurement for the radius and do a circle using the apex as the center. Am-I right?

The radius of the circle around the bust point on the sloper is the bust diameter. It is the measurement from the bust point to the under bust and is usually around 8cm.

The bust circle is used on slopers that are prepared for fitted and contoured garments such as strapless evening bodices, bustiers or bikini tops. The fitted sloper is adapted from a princess draft by adding the bust circle, increasing bust suppression, removing excess tolerances and contouring darts.

Thanks I will get to it. A fitted slopper is just one without ease right?

Yes, ease should be very very minimal at the most. If you're making a garment where the cups are separate then the darts are moved to converge at the bust point like this:


I hope this helps Smiley
