TheSloperLady: Sew, What IS a Sloper?

Exactly what is a sloper?

RE: SLOPER Ask TheSloperLady Tip 1507-0301
A sloper is a very basic apparel pattern without style lines or seam allowances that can be used at the beginning or repeatedly throughout the evolution of a style. When they are drafted to specific measurements they are personal aka custom slopers that can be used as patternmaking templates for drafting new patterns or altering other patterns to fit.

  1. Hi SloperLady,

    Did you ever post a blog page regarding how to make a template for the sloper? I would love to know how to make and use one correctly. Thank you. Linda
