How to Design Your Own Clothes and Make Your Own Patterns by Claudia Ein, published 1975 by Doubleday & Company, Inc. Hard cover with dust jacket, 309 pages.
"Using the professional system explained in this book, you can make a great many exciting fashions and not have to settle for the 'almost' look of manufactured dresses or the 'cut-the-pattern-and-hope-it-fits' routine few can afford these days. The sloper system described here is the one used by professional designers. It requires very little in the way of materials and is easy to learn. With muslin and heavy paper, you make any or all of the five basic master patterns called slopers--the basic A-line dress, basic skirt, basic bodice, basic blouse, and basic pants--and use them in all your sewing."
