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.
