Using the fitted torso sloper from your UoF sloper library, we will demonstrate how to create a princess dress with a flared hem. You will learn how to convert the torso sloper into a princess seam dress and then how to create flares on each of the dress panels. By learning these principles, you will able to design numerous variations for blouses, jackets and coats.
|The slopers needed for this lesson can be found and drafted in our Pattern making lesson: Drafting a Shoulder Dart Bodice Sloper from Measurements or draped in our Draping lesson: Bodice Sloper. Or, you can download and print our free Women’s Bodice Slopers included in our lesson: Pivoting a Bodice Shoulder Dart to a Side Bust Dart. The bodice sloper is then converted to a fitted torso sloper in our Pattern making lesson: Convert Bodice Sloper to Fitted Torso Sloper.|
