Basic Pant Sloper

Learn how to draft a basic pant sloper from scratch. Start by downloading our easy to follow our Pant Measurement Chart, the Plot Sheet pages 1 and 2 and the Fractions to Decimals Sheet. And, although we are using a pant form to extract the necessary measurements for drafting the pant, you could easily use your own body measurements. This pant sloper will be the foundation for creating any number of pant design variations, from dress pants to jeans.

MODULE 1 • Lesson Prep

Step Description
1 For this pant sloper lesson you will need to download and print the Pant Measurement Chart, the Plot Sheet pages 1 and 2 and the Fractions to Decimals Sheet.
2 You will also need a piece of unlined pattern paper measuring 36” (91.44cm) wide x 48” (121.92cm) long.
3A We will be using a pant form to extract measurements for drafting this lesson, however you could use your own body measurements.

We will begin by style taping the pant form, measuring 9” (22.86cm) down from the middle of the waist tape on center front. This will be the pant’s hip line. The depth of the hipline may vary from 7” (17.78cm) to 9” (22.86cm).

3B Style tape the hip parallel to the floor from center front to center back.
3C You can check the level of the hip tape by resting the L square ruler on the table and turning the dress form to check that the tape is at the same level from front to back.
4 Style tape the middle of the waist tape from front to back.
