Draping: Techniques for Beginners

Francesca Sterlacci, Barbara Arata-Gavere

Draping is the art of manipulating fabric directly on the dress form. It is the most creative way for a designer to turn design ideas into reality.

Start by learning the basics, including how to use a dress form and how to prepare the muslin for draping. You will then move on to learn how to drape basic bodices, including a range of darts and necklines, and also basic skirts, and finally dresses.

Each lesson in the book is illustrated in meticulous detail in a series of step-by-step photographs accompanied by photos from the catwalk.
