If you need to adjust the printed pattern to the correct size (see the 1" square on each page), simply divide 100 by the exact measurement of how the 1" square printed out.  This will give you the percentage of enlargement or reduction for an accurate printed pattern.

American Girl came out with the cutest dolls - 14" tall and so very awesome.  I'm in love. So my intentions for 2017 is to make party dresses.  I had to come up with a sloper first.  I did this before with the BFF dolls - which unfortunately are no longer made. HERE

Step 1
Wrap your doll with tissue paper and lots of tape.

 Step 2
Using a permanent fine tip marker, mark center front, center back, sides, waist and shoulders.

These dolls have plastic "seams" on their bodies to help you mark the lines with your marker.

Step 3
Carefully remove the tape wrapped tissue paper by cutting up the center back.  Tape the patterns onto a piece of paper.
Step 4

Add seam allowances (1/8th).  Tape a paper sloper together, make adjustments.

Then cut the pattern out of fabric and sew together.

Now the sloper pattern is ready to manipulate into different clothing.

A great way to sew a 1/8" seam is move your needle.

If you would like to download the sloper that I made for the Wellie Wisher doll, click the picture below, click on the right mouse button and select "open image in new tab".  Click on print in the menu bar or on the 3 horizontal dots on the upper right side of your internet page.  Enlarge or shrink your printed copy so the 1" square is a 1" square.  The best way I know how to do this is to divide 100 by the actual size of your printed 1" square.  You will get the percentage of enlargement or shrinkage as your answer.  For example: 100 divided by 1/2"(supposed 1" square example) the answer is 200. So enlarge your picture by 200%.  Let's say your 1" square printed out at 1-1/4". Divide 100 by 1.25 and the answer would be 80. Or shrink the picture by 80%.
