Fit With Your Sloper

Threads magazine - 190 - April/May 2017 Issue
Article Image
Because a sloper is a pattern of your figure, it’s a great tool for adjusting commercial patterns. By directly comparing the sloper to a style pattern, you can make initial alterations that eliminate many fit problems at the pattern stage. To begin, you will need a properly fitted sloper or moulage copied onto a clear plastic sheet. This transparent pattern functions as a reference guide, so you can change the commercial pattern as needed to reflect the dimensions, proportions, and shape of your figure. With this article from Threads #190 (April/May 2017), you’ll spend less time overall in fitting, and more time sewing-and wearing-flattering, fashionable garments.
