Building Blocks of Style - Make a (T-Shirt) Sloper
Building Blocks of Style - Make a (T-Shirt)  Sloper

Our Price: $49.00

Product Code: WKS-MSS


Is your young sewist interested in Fashion Design? Have they taken one or more of the Design & Create series with us? Have they expressed an interest in Fashion Design?

The "Building Blocks of Style" is a potential two-part workshop where we introduce your sewist to a real taste of fashion design and pattern making.

In this workshop we'll introduce your budding designer to making their own T-Shirt Sloper. A "Sloper" is a basic pattern for creating new designs. A Sloper is a paper representation of your body measurements and the first step in pattern making without fullness, design details, and without seam allowances. The advantages of making your own sloper are that you make a base pattern that is tailored to your own body measurements and shape. The result, when combined with design details, is a finished product that not only fits, but fits tailored to you! Once completed, the sloper can be used to make any number of different styles of garment, using the basic sloper as the initial building block of the person's individual style.

A self-contained workshop (everything will be completed in this one workshop), students in this class will complete their own sloper which, if combined with the second part, will make their own garment using one of the fabrics we have in the shop to check fit and make a completed sample. To sign up for the second part where you make your own sample
follow this link.

This class is available to students ages 11 and above. Students must be able to use a ruler, understand measurements, fractions, and have sewn with us before. Those signing up for this workshop will receive the following items as part of the class: a mechanical pencil, a french curve ruler, a clear straight ruler and pattern making paper.
