These sloper patterns are the foundation upon which the patterns I create are drafted and the sizing I use here will be used consistently as a baseline throughout my pattern line. I offer these with the hope that it will make fitting the process of fitting patterns much easier and help sewers attain more consistent, satisfying results with any commercial patterns. Sloper patterns can also be used as a starting point for drafting your own designs as well. For more about what a sloper is and how to use them, see my tutorial here.
If you prefer a multisize pattern, this is also available as for purchase as a nested, 12 size version (here).
This sloper pattern is for woven fabrics without stretch. A sloper or fitting shell is not a typical sewing pattern, but a basic shell that contains very little ease, intended to aid in finding your necessary pattern adjustments for adapting other patterns, or for use as a basis for pattern drafting.
This sloper is a basic bodice that extends to the hip. The front bodice has a waist dart and a bust dart for shaping. The back bodice has a shoulder and a waist dart. The sleeve has an elbow dart. It includes only enough wearing ease for movement, and is intended to closely skim the body. The wearing ease included in the pattern is approximately 1.5″ at the full bust, .5″ at the waist, and .5″, 1.5″, and 2.5″ for B, C, and D cup variations respectively. A chart with approximate completed measurements for all sizes is available as a pdf or a jpg. It includes no seam or hem allowances.
