To draft the pattern, start from a basic block with darts and few cm wearing ease, according to the fabric and style you prefer.
First draw the slash line that separates bodice and skirt:
- on back, it’s parallel to waistline, 4 to 6cm above it
- on front, it starts from a matching point at side seam and is slanted upwards toward center front.
On back, discard the dart from center.
On front, make it 3cm wide from waist to slash line.
