Sewing Atrophy

You know the phrase if you don't use it you will lose it. I need some sewing exercises.

When I was sewing everyday I could make a dress without the aid of a paper pattern. I was able to see a designer dress and then decide that It should be mine and then make the dress for myself.

I had stopped doing this not really sure why. So I need to get some exercises done so that I can cure my atorphy.

Fashion-Era is a great website and excellent tool. I discovered this website 2 years ago when I was researching fashion styles through the years.

Would you believe it has directions for making a sloper? A sloper is the American term for basic pattern block. I have made them in the past so its time for an update.

This will be my exercise for February. I need to create sloper for myself and get back to designing my own clothing.
