Okay, Download Away

10 Nov

 

Well, not to be accused of having little to no follow through, I should talk about the Mrs Stylebook Sloper Along, right? I emailed the original scanner of the slopers and did not hear back. So, I’m opening them up to the world.

This is the multi darted sloper. The measurements are in centimeters and based on your bust size. I think we can start the sloper-a-long in January. Is that too far away? I’m afraid with the holidays you’ll be too busy to work on it. I love holiday sewing. My parents are out of state / country.  I purposefully make few social / family committments so I just sew to my heart’s content :)

Please go here to Downloads and select your size. I had mine printed up in the office print shop. But, you can take to Kinkos or such and tell them to print at 100 percent.

I’ll post a timeline over the weekend. The plan is to work on our slopers and then jointly make the same simple dress using the drafting schematic from a Mrs. Stylebook. I’ve written suggested supplies here.

And now, I am off to pre-shrink wool. I head to NY tomorrow for a quick trip. My shopping list is just embarassing at this point.

And, of course, if there are any experienced MSB drafter or Japanese speakers who want to volunteer as this will be the blind leading the blind, I am not too proud to accept your help!
