Draping for Apparel Design
This text combines step-by-step instructions illustrated to present the principles and methods of draping. The author incorporates three draping techniques-manipulating dart excess, adding fullnes, and contour draping-in design projects featured throughout the text. Projects begin with a draping plan and fashion drawing to identify its creative elements, and determine the draping technique required. The author describes the drape of the basic dress and its relationship to every garment in a clothing collection.
