From sloper to basic sleeveless top

Added Jun 23, 2011

Venice, Californ...






This is another tutorial on how to draft a pattern for a sleeveless top starting from a sloper. As opposed to the A-line top from the first tutorial (From sloper to A-line sleeveless top) this one has less flare but it is still loose fitting enough to require no zippers or buttons. Also, the neckline is a bit deeper, both front and back. This top could easily be lengthen to make a dress – the dress would have some flare but would not be “tent like” (as if you lengthened the A-line top).

    I’m pretty much absolutely clueless when it comes to pattern terminology, so I have a possibly stupid question…Could I just print this out and use it like a regular pattern, or do I have to follow the instructions starting from a sloper? Thank you!

      This is a finished pattern, so yes, you can print it and use it as a regular pattern. Seam allowances are not included though, so you need to add them when tracing the pattern on your fabric. Works pretty much as any other Burda magazine pattern.
      Let me know if you have any other questions.

    I just wanted to say that the printed pattern for this goes together like a dream!
