Learn how to create your own personal skirt and bodice slopers from your measurements! In this live webinar you will learn how to draft and create there slopers as well as add style lines to create new patterns that will fit you perfectly. Register Here for Thursday June 27th’s live webinar at 11:00 a.m. EST (4:00pm GMT). Can’t attend? No problem, each registrant receives a recording of the event.

Every sewing pattern is based off of a basic sloper. Companies have base slopers for each one of their sizes, and they use these to create all their new designs. But wouldn’t it be cool to have your own customized fitting sloper that fits you perfectly? These slopers can be developed from YOUR body measurements, which you can use to create all kinds of new designs that you know will fit! All you need is a measuring tape, some drafting rulers, and a pencil and paper.

In this live webinar, sewing extraordinaire and BurdaStyle’s Online Editor Meg Healy will show you how to carefully add drafted outlines and darts to a 2-dimentional piece of paper to create a basic sloper that will become the perfect fitting base dress that you can easily adapt. She will also show you how to manipulate these basic slopers and add design elements to create new patterns, while keeping the same perfect fit! Oh the freedom!

Have a question about a specific technique? There will be a Q&A session at the end of the webinar where you can ask Meg any questions you have, and no question goes unanswered!

Can’t attend the live webinar? Everyone who registers will receive a recording of the event, any downloads or resources referenced during the webinar, and have the ability to ask any follow-up questions.

Register Here for Thursday June 27th’s live webinar at 11:00 a.m. EST (4:00pm GMT).

Hope to see all you there!

    I registered for the webinar but missed it. So far I haven’t received any emails with links to watch the replay. Where can I access the webinar replays and get the materials mentioned in the course description?

    I haven’t received the post webinar email with measurement charts and replay etc. Have they been sent out yet or can I access the materials another way? I’m looking forward to getting started in mine after watching the event. TYIA. Jill.

      I received the thank you email on Monday like they said, but it came only with the link for the video file and a link for Amazon for the tracing paper. I am still waiting for the pdf file to print material.

    Is there any update as to when the webinar replay will be sent out? I registered after the fact (link above seemed to work, thanks, MegH), but I have not gotten my link info a week later . . . Thanks.

    Great webinar Meg! …You demystified several points of making a sloper that I’ve always stumbled over. I think the next ones will be much better. Looking forward to what you’ve got for us next!
