Do you own any basic slopers or pattern blocks? Well, if you went to fashion school, you do, and you know how incredibly useful they are. But if you didn’t- well perhaps you don’t have to go to school for this, with the resources available to the sewing community these days.
Today I’ve been researching what is out there in terms of free, download-able, basic sloper patterns for our users. Every single piece of clothing that is not draped is derived from a basic pattern block or sloper. I must stress the importance of creating your own, customized slopers. Once you have taken the time to create your basic patterns (designed off of your personal measurements or your fit model’s measurements) you can make anything. Seriously.
