Men and Women-Basic Blocks

Basic Blocks (Slopers) Collections for Men, Women and Juniors
The basic block collection is a bodice sloper for men, women, and juniors. Unlike old-fashioned tagboard slopers, our basic blocks don’t just come in one size. They automate the time-consuming work of drafting basic blocks to measure for each new pattern–just enter the measurements, get a basic block and go to work from there.

  • Women’s bodice has plain, princess seam or side darts options.
  • Ease options range from none (for lingerie) to overcoat size.

This sample garment was created using the Basic Block collection in conjunction with the PatternMaker Professional Studio. The fabric is rayon sari fabric, and the gold border from the sari was used to create the sash.
