Print At Home Princess Line Dress Block - Woven Fabrics
Princess Line Dress Block With Sleeves for Woven Fabrics - including Plus Sizes
Please see below for a full description.
These are professional fashion industry blocks (slopers) which are used commerciallly to make expert standardised patterns able to be put into factory production. Blocks are a template used to modify and create your own styles. These dress blocks have no seam or hem allowances.
Each block has approx 5cm (2 inch) ease - extra room - allowed for wearing comfort. This means you need to use the block that most closely matches your measurements.
If you prefer a firmer fit go down a size (eg if your hip measures 102cm buy a size 14 block).
These are fashion industry standard princess line dress block, and the sizes include a plus size range.
Available for purchase is downloadable pdf documents able to be immediately printed to your home printer.
It is printable in both US letter and A4 sizes. The pages are very easy to assemble simply match the letters and numbers of the grid and tape or stick glue into position before cutting out. I suggest you trace the block using a tracing wheel and patternmaking card to ensure a long life.
Please ensure before you print that your printer settings are set to "DO NOT SCALE" (Print actual size)
Please print the test page (normally the first or last page) as a single print job before you send the full pdf document to the printer, with your printer settings on "do not scale". This will print a test size square which you can measure to ensure the pattern will print to the correct size.
These blocks print in black ink with grainlines in red ink. You may prefer to change your print settings to "draft" to save ink.
