In today’s lesson, I show you how to draft a basic skirt sloper and pattern. You will need the measurements you took in Lesson 2. You can find the information about supplies you will need in Lesson 1.
I created a free step-by-step 18 page handout, with illustrations, that you will be able to use to create your pattern. Note that the handout tells you to go to my Grandma’s Sewing Cabinet blog for information. That blog was merged with this blog some time ago so disregard the Grandma’s Sewing Cabinet URL. The videos links are here on Modern Retro Woman!
But that’s not all! I also created a video tutorial that follows that handout and shows you how I go about making a skirt pattern. The Mister was my camera man for this lesson. The tutorial is in four videos because You Tube puts a time limit on video uploads (Update: I just figured out how to make the time limit rule disappear and in the future I won’t have to worry about a video only being 15 minutes long).
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them either in the comment section below or on the Modern Retro Woman Facebook page.
