This week we will be adding various amount of ease to our perfectly fitted slopers! We have a fitted block, now you can decide how much ease you like in your garments, and add the ease.

If you chose to use the two pencils to add seam allowance, you may want to mark the allowance on your sewing machine with rubber bands, tape, or magnets that are designed for this purpose.
