Publisher Description

Draping-the art of using calico to design directly on a dress form-is an essential skill for fashion students. Starting with the basics of preparing the dress form and fabric, the book advances through pinning, trimming and clipping, and creating shape using darts and tucks, to adding volume using pleats and gathers, and handling complex curves. Advanced skills include how to use support elements and how to handle bias draping. Each exercise and project is explained with step-by-step photographs and line drawings that bring to life the art of creating womenswear in three dimensions.
