BurdaStyle.com’s sloper patterns have been a huge hit with our members, and we want to see what you’re making! Upload any design you’ve sewn up with a Burda garment sloper for a chance to win a fabulous prize pack from BurdaStyle and Michael Miller Fabrics (more prize info below!).
You can use any BurdaStyle sloper: the Basic Pant, Basic Bodice and Sleeve, or Basic Skirt. Or, combine them to make a dress or jumpsuit! You can purchase these slopers individually, but why not get a little extra inspiration with one of our sloper and video bundles?
The Digital Design Collection includes all three slopers, plus tutorials for Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and transferring style lines, all with fashion design in mind. The Pattern Modification and Drafting Technique Collection Bundle includes the bodice and skirt slopers, plus detailed videos like how to adjust the bust size of a pattern and how to draft a circle skirt. Coming up with an entry is so easy with these kits!
