3D Exploration

  1. 1. “The Drape & Contour Project” <br />Draping on the stand<br />
  2. 2. Example of draping using the bias.<br />Pinning bias grain to centre front<br />Slashing into the waist line to create diamond shapes<br />
  3. 3. Showing that by using one piece of fabric on the bias you can drape it around the stand to create a dress.<br />Drafting a diamond shape insert for the back.<br />Folding the fabric to make a bust dart.<br />
  4. 4. Example of draping on the stand by using a flat piece of calico.<br />This will show you how to mark up draped fabric and transfer it to a paper pattern.<br />
  5. 5. Using the bias grain on the cf<br />Pleating the calico to create volume at the neck line.<br />
  6. 6. Matching up the straight grain line when pleating.<br />Creating shoulder darts.<br />
  7. 7. Looking at the proportion, deciding what area to focus on.<br />
  8. 8. marking on a seam line to help with visualizing how it would look before cutting it.<br />
  9. 9. Folding the fabric to make a bust dart<br />Pinning & marking on the side seam<br />
  10. 10. Marking on the armhole<br />Draw around the armhole on the stand then drop down to the required depth.<br />
  11. 11. Creating a new seam<br />Slash the fabric to make it lie flat against the stand, once marked cut away the excess fabric<br />
  12. 12. Mark on important points centre back, neck line, waist line.<br />
  13. 13. Taping on extra calico to get more length and achieving the right line<br />
  14. 14. Cutting away the armhole<br />
  15. 15. Marking on shoulder darts<br />Finishing point open up dart & mark on wrong side shoulder point<br />
  16. 16. Marking on the notches<br />
  17. 17. Taking off stand, checking all information is marked on<br />
  18. 18. Press flat and transfer to paper, this will be your master pattern.<br />
  19. 19. Mark on all information<br />
  20. 20. Draft off a pattern from the master. Straighten off seams, adding extra paper if needed.<br />
  21. 21. Fold pleats and check the finishing line is straightened off.<br />
  22. 22. Add on seam allowance and cut away excess paper.<br />
  23. 23. Check that seams & notches match up<br />
  24. 24. Make sure that all changes are traced back onto the master pattern<br />
  25. 25. Cut out your 1st toile in calico, marking on all information including cf & cb points.<br />
  26. 26. Make up toile, press and pin to stand<br />
  27. 27. Make alterations by pinning out excess to create the fit you want.<br />Draw on new seam lines if required, e.g. Yolk at the back. <br />
  28. 28. Take out excess by slashing and taping,mark on all changes to calico as reference.<br />
  29. 29. Use a tape measure to be accurate when marking on changes e.g. measuring distance to square off front.<br />
  30. 30. Take toile off stand and press flat.<br />
  31. 31. Make alterations to pattern by laying paper over toile and drawing on new lines.<br />
  32. 32. Taking out excess from a curveDraw a straight line from edge of slash point to the far end and pivot to take out excess. Add on extra to the seam allowance to make a continuous line.<br />Or deciding if a new seam would be more appropriate.<br />
  33. 33. Copying what you have done on the toile and translating this to paper. Slashing the paper at the same point as the calico.<br />
  34. 34. Draft all alterations back on to the master pattern. Mark new lines with a different colour so they stand out. <br />
  35. 35. Don’t rub any lines out, all information must be kept on master pattern.<br />
  36. 36. Draft off pattern number 2.<br />Changing the grain line.<br />New pattern piece.<br />
  37. 37. Make up 2nd toile & pin to stand<br />Making both sides of the toile rather than one half. This will help me to visualize it as a garment.<br />
  38. 38. Looking closely at the changes made and the silhouette created.<br />
  39. 39. More alterations………..<br />Look at the proportion of the garment.<br /> Make decisions as to if it is what you want to achieve.<br />
