Hi, I just joined this forum. In fact, I have never been part of an online forum so I am excited to access the the wealth of knowledge that is out there. I am a self-taught seamstress and have recently begun sewing capri’s from a self made pattern which I have tweaked a few times to fit me better. I don’t like the fit I get with most pants available in department stores.
I recently stumbled on the concept of a pattern that fits only me called a sloper. The thought excites me. Women for thousands of years must have known how to take measurements and tailor-make clothing. I am thrilled to know that others in this day and age still know how and that all these skills aren’t lost.
I got on line and tryed to find instructions on how to make a sloper for me and I didn’t get anywhere. Do any of you know of a website or a book that can tell me how to do this? I am interested in top and bottom — to make shirts, skirts, and pants. Thank-you ahead of time for steering me in the right direction!
