The first of three skirt drafts, I leaned about in the French Pattern Drafting/Moulage class I took from Lynda Maynard.
To create a straight skirt from a sloper. This example shows a back sloper. The changes are the same for both front and back.
|First, trace a new copy of each sloper piece, back and front, on your pattern paper of choice.|
|Second, Cut away above* the Waist Balance Line|
|Fourth, Extend out 3/4 of an inch from the side seam at the hem|
