Fill in the blanks and follow the directions to create your own waist-length princess seamed bodice!
I have done something amazing! I have used Excel to create a princess seamed bodice pattern generator, and I'm letting anyone and everyone use it!

You won't be able to change anything but the purple cells (to keep mean people from stealing it), but those are the only ones you need to be able to mess with. All you do is take your measurements, put them in the appropriate purple block, and follow the directions. Make sure you read the notes at the bottom first.

This is not the last version I'm going to make. It's kinda like a Beta test. I tried it with my measurements and it worked great. Now it's time to get some feedback.

The software I used was Microsoft Office Excel 2007. The image is from Forever 21, and it's a picture of the bodice of a dress that inspired this venture.

Thank youuu, I have almost o sewing experience so this is extremely helpful. Knitting The only thing that was confusing was the measurements. I wasn't always sure I was measuring from the right places so that could mess up the pattern. Maybe if there was pictures?

This is great. If I may make a suggestion: to make things easier to follow, you could colour code the text with the measurements. For example, in the explanation of how to measure you could give "waist line" a blue colour that matches with a blue colour measurement on the side. It just makes things easier to follow. I hope I made sense...

this looks great! Can I use it to make princess seams for a full shirt (like a sleeveless peplum shirt) or is it just for sweetheart bodices?

Thank you so much for this! I just drafted my pieces. Now to cut out fabric and put them all together. (A Trader Joe's bag works perfectly to fit all the pieces)
