using the PMB sloper to check the padding process

I have a sloper from Wild Ginger PatternMaster Boutique that I used to check my progress. I had made 2 or 3 slopers for her and still had some problems with the fit, so I decided to supplement the sloper with the dress form. These photos were taken at the beginning of the summer and now the waist and hip measures are obsolete, so I will probably make another one. I plan to draft the cover in PMB out of muslin. I make slopers out of this gridded stuff or Swedish Tracing Paper because it's a much less tedious way to mark the darts and such. The problem is that Ellie says "IT'S ITCHY, MA!"
When I draft the cover for the form I will draft it with "no ease" so it fits skintight.
