Abstract: The purposes of this study were (a) to explore and compare two methods for obtaining individualized fit in patterns which might be used as individualized slopers for flat pattern design courses and (b) to assess whether a better fit could be achieved with the use of a computerized pattern rather than a basic fitting pattern adjusted to individual measurements. The latter is designated as the traditional method for obtaining an individualized sloper. Data were obtained from a comparison of the fit of garments made from the two types of patterns. Students assigned to two sections of the Dress Design and Construction I course offered during the spring semester, 1974, at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro participated in the study.
