Outline the process of drawing a line along edge of sloper or draft without seam allowance.


Tracing by using a tracing wheel to transfer pattern lines onto another sheet , sheets of paper, or to opposite side of a folded sheet of papper. Folded draft is opened or sheets are separated and traced lines are penciled in with the proper tools.


Trueing is the process of connecting all points on a pattern and checking for accuracy of measurement, dartlines, seamlines, crossmarks, shape of seamlines, etc.
