Show IH: Easy Sloper


I worked on this for months, put it away for years, and then picked it back up again :D

It's a website that lets you make a 'sloper' (a sewing pattern that fits like a second skin, and can be used as a building block for other custom fitting patterns). You go through the tutorial to take your measurements, and it generates the pattern for you!

Let me know what you think!

    Also, I'm not sure how to go about spreading the word on this. I don't have a facebook but I made one for this, and I now need to verify my account... so any other ideas while I wait on that?

      I'd suspect lots of sewing people hang out on Pinterest.

      I'd add some images to Pinterest. Perhaps of the generated patterns. Perhaps giving it a bit of a sell, e.g. 'How to make a sewing pattern in 2 minutes!'

      Also, surely there are FB groups where people talk about this kind of stuff.

        Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll try out the pinterest route
