    I think what is better than the dress (if that is possible) is the blog post you wrote! It made me smile and chuckle.

    Thank you! I drafted it from a sloper. My patternmaking skills are not all that well-developed, and it was fairly straightforward to adapt the sloper. Mostly, it involved cutting the pattern horizontally at the stripes and adding some fullness to the skirt.
