Draping - the art of using calico to create womenswear directly on a mannequin - is an essential skill for fashion designers. Through a series of step-by-step projects, designed to develop skills from the most basic to more advanced techniques, this book will guide you in creating both classic and contemporary garments, as well as historical styles and costumes. Draping projects include dresses, corsets and jackets, and highlight key fashion garments such as Audrey Hepburn's dress from Breakfast at Tiffany's and the Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo jacket. Starting with the basics of choosing and preparing the mannequin for draping, 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 such as shoulder pads, under layers and petticoats, and how to handle bias draping. The book culminates with a chapter on improvisational skills. Each skill and technique throughout the book is explained with step-by-step photographs and line drawings that bring the art of creating womenswear in three dimensions to life.
