MODULE 1 • Lesson Prep
|1||For this lesson, we will be using a half-scale dress form to demonstrate how to test out a design idea. Many designers use this testing method before they move to full scale. One of the earliest designers to use this method was French designer, Madeleine Vionnet.|
|2||In preparation for this lesson, we have drafted several circle shapes for you to choose from and experiment with. The following circle patterns have varying inner and outer circle diameters and different placement variations for the inner circle, which will produce interesting effects. The first pattern’s outer circle diameter measures 8 3/4” (22.2cm) and its inner circle diameter is 1” (2.5cm).|
|3||The second pattern’s outer circle is 8 3/4” (22.2cm) and its inner circle is 2 5/8” (6.7cm).|
