Method of sewing sleeveless blouse

Using a basic bodice draft , a sleeveless blouse draft can be prepared by making certain changes.
In a sleeveless blouse shoulder width should be less than that of blouse with set in sleeves. Or else the shoulder line droops. It is better to have closer fitting underarm seams. If not under garments can be seen through the armhole. These changes can be done by making following changes in the basic draft
Trace the draft of the front and back of the bodice. Mark point X along the shoulder line such that R-X is 3/4" .Produce the side line L-K to Y such that K-Y =3/4". Re draw the armhole line as shown by red dotted line .Do the same changes for the back also. Sew armseye with fitted facing to get good finish.Same method can be followed to sew other sleeveless garments
