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 semi-fitted and a shift dress silhouette. Add a collar, shorten or lengthen the hem, choose your neckline and armhole finishings! This dress sloper allows you to be the designer of your own perfect shift dress because of all the minimal details.
