With step-by-step written instructions, Draping Basics provides the fundamentals of designing foundation garments by draping fabric on a dress form. Photographs clearly demonstrate the details of the process, and CAD drawings show how the draping is transferred to paper patterns. The text covers the foundation skirt, bodice, and set-in sleeve, as well as foundation bodice variations; dart equivalent bodice styles; bodice designs; and skirt, dress, and collar styles. Features: -- General and specific chapter objectives and lists of key terms support the sequential written instructions -- Front, back, and side views in the photographs show the three-dimensionality of the draped design -- Gingham fabric is used to show grainlines clearly and ensure accuracy -- The text concludes with a glossary of key terms and an appendix listing suppliers to the trade
