Can I sell garments sewn from patterns generated from My Sloper?

For My Sloper version 1.72 and below, the answer is no, unless you have contracted with us through our Cottage Industry License for Home Sewing which can be purchased annually.

Can I sell patterns generated from My Sloper?

Unfortunately, no. However we are working on a version of My Sloper that allows branding of your label that will allow you to sell patterns generated from My Sloper. Stay tuned for more information. Sign up for updates.

Does My Sloper support both knit and woven garments?
Absolutely, yes! Other pattern-making software out there sells separate knit and woven components, but My Sloper does not limit you to only one type of fabric. The idea behind designing for knitwear is that the sloper is usually one or two sizes smaller because the design is dependent on the elasticity of the knit fabric to expand and cover the wearer. Since we design My Sloper for modesty, we do not encourage the use of elastic knit fabric that will cling to the wearer and definitely do not encourage the user to design one or two sizes smaller for modesty sake.
What size range does My Sloper support?
While other pattern-making kits and software sell separate adult and children’s components, My Sloper supports all sizes from babies to women size 10XL. Although many of the slopers are designed for women and girls, My Sloper can be used to design for menswear using the basic blouse sloper for men’s basic shirt. My Sloper 1.8 will have support for jackets and coats, and it can be used to design men’s jackets and coats as well.
Does My Sloper Demo support printing of patterns?
Absolutely, yes! The demo version of sloper lets you print and test out the Basic Bodice Sloper with Basic Sleeve and Bust Darts so that you can gauge for yourself if you are comfortable with a semi-fit blouse for modesty. Here is a complete list of features enabled for the demo version:

  • Necklines
  • Neck Facing
  • Traditional Collar
  • Basic Blouse with Sleeve
  • Vest with Rounded Hem
  • Rectangular Patch Pocket
  • Basic A-line Dress
  • Basic Sleeve

If you are happy with the Basic Blouse sloper, you will most likely be happy with the other styling of the blouse, dress, vest, jackets, etc.

How to MeasureHow to DesignHow to PrintHow to SewSoftware ReleaseVersion 1.8Download My Sloper
The most unique part of Kosher Patterns is .. “My Sloper” software program which allows one to input every imaginable measurement – in order to take the Kosher Pattern designs and quickly create a custom-designed pattern specifically for the user. If one isn’t a seamstress, one could miss how vital this one-of-a-kind program is. Poor-fitting necklines, inaccurate shoulder slant, waist-length too long or too short, bust girth (along with price) and more cause women to shop for endless hours with often the same obstacle coming up over and over again – the clothes are standard sized. If one has a shorter than average neck, or a fuller bust, but narrow shoulders, for example, simply moving up one size will NOT provide a better fit. With Kosher Pattern’s My Sloper – all these challenges are eliminated. It’s no wonder many young girls and ladies find tzniut such a challenge – the choices are too limited!Rabbanit Alfasi

I have been a very satisfied customer of a website called “Kosher Patterns” which is unique in two ways that are inspiring for frum women anywhere.  First, they are the ONLY English-speaking company that offers tzanuah patterns for the chareidi market and it is, as far as I know, run almost if not entirely by a chareidi woman.

Your patterns are wonderful! Congratulations! I have to thank you once again for your wonderful patterns! I made some garments using some of them and they are indeed very nice.
