Here is a basic dress sloper pattern that you can use as a template for modification when developing your own stylized sewing patterns!
This particular dress sloper is slim fitting to the body and has a sheath silhouette, so it allows you to draft and create a dress perfectly fitting to your body. Add panels, ruffles, style lines, and really whatever you want! This dress sloper allows you to be the designer of your own perfect sheath dress because of all the minimal details.
