Sewing a block or sloper is the cornerstone of garment construction, much like a blueprint for building a structure. In this fundamental sewing technique, you'll create a precise pattern that mirrors your unique body shape. A block/sloper serves as the starting point for crafting perfectly fitted clothing. 

Join our workshop to learn how to sew a top block (sloper) including sleeves and unlock the secrets to tailoring garments that fit you like a glove. Discover the art of customization and gain the skills to bring your fashion visions to life, one well-fitted piece at a time.

In this course students will construct a customized block (sloper) fitted to their bodies. This experience includes 12 hours of expert instruction and all course materials.
