Pants Slopers

-Choose a pants sloper based on your child’s hip measurement.  Measure snugly over the child’s underclothes and use that measurement to determine which basic pants pattern to use. Patterns have 10% wearing ease in the hip and 5% in the waist.

-Pants legs can be lengthened or shortened.

-Files are available in .pdf (non-editable) for paper pattern drafting, .ai or .svg for digital drafting.

-Infant size pants patterns have 1” additional ease in the hip and the crotch is 1/2” lower for diaper ease.
*The hip and waist numbers in the charts below are body measurements.
