This extended workshop will show you how to measure and make a simple bodice (known as a toile). The toile will be fitted to your upper body and a sleeveless pattern will be made from it. We will explore variations such as necklines and simple collars, armhole shapes and various styles, we can add flare, fullness and hemlines to make it fit your body shape. From the custom pattern it is possible to create almost any bodice garment.

Day 1: You will use your measurements to make an individual bodice pattern and make a sample in calico (toile) and fit it to you. From this pattern it is possible to create almost any pattern. With the toilé, a final fitted pattern will be made.

Day 2: You will make a top from the final fitted pattern in your desired fabric* You will be shown how to alter the style, shape and length and finish to your preference.
