Follow my tutorial and draft a basic bodice block (bodice sloper) based on your body measurements. Enter the measurements into the user-friendly calculator, which computes approximate fabric consumption for the bodice and includes the measurements you have taken (and also measurements, that need to be calculated) in the detailed step-by-step pattern drafting tutorial, which you can easily download as a pdf document into your computer.
