High "V" neck blouse

Sari blouse draft can be converted to high neck blouse draft by making certain changes in neck drafting. Back neck is raised a little. Different shapes can be given for the front neck.


Back neck= A-G 1/12 chest
Join shoulder line G’-R and shape back neck curve A-G’


A-G =1/12 chest +¼”
W-G =1¼”
A-X = neck depth = to taste
Join X-W and produce to Y such that W-Y = back neck A-G’ +½”
Draw a perpendicular at Y. Y-Z = W-G=1¼”.
Join G-Z.

Nice blog and wonderful drafts... I too stitch nearly the same way with a slight difference. But high neck is not a fashion now. So not stitching it.
