MODULE 1 • Dress Form Prep & Measurements

Step Description
1A In preparation for drafting the straight skirt sloper, you will first establish the hip level on your dress form using style tape at 7” (17.8cm) down from the waistline. Style tape the right-side of the dress form, from center front to center back, parallel to the floor.
1B The easiest way to do this is by resting your L square on the table as you turn the dress form, making sure that your tape aligns with the ruler at the 7” (17.8cm) hip level style tape, from front to back.
2 Next, download our Straight Skirt Measurement Form to record your measurements.
