Draping Exercise

first we had to cut a piece of calico to the right size and then pin it to the tailors bust and start to add darts in to try fit it to the shape.

Centre front line.

pinned the shoulder back and then cut away the calico to the required length.

Added the two darts to the front bodice to make it fit the bust.

Then same with the back, adding only one dart this time.

And then adding the second dart to the back of the garment.

Now i have started to drape my material over the bust to come up with design ideas.

This was our draping lesson that we did, I started of by draping the calico on to create a fitted bodice pattern piece, then i started to drape more calico over the top to create different designs and shape ideas.
