Creative Draping-2D Draping

This lesson is part of our Creative Draping series. Fiona Liu, an up and coming designer, demonstrates a 2-dimensional draping technique, using the basic bodice as its foundation. You will learn how to draw strategic style lines on your pattern and then how to manipulate organza fabric on your bodice foundation, so that you can create a unique garment design without the use of a dress form.

The bodice slopers needed for this lesson can be found and drafted in our Draping lesson: Side Bust Dart Bodice with Back Neck Dart or found and drafted in our Pattern making lesson: Transfer Side Bust Bodice Drape to Paper-Oaktag  or in our Pattern making lesson: Drafting a Side Bust Dart Bodice from Measurements.
