Draping for Apparel Design Summary

Draping for Apparel Design by Helen Joseph-Armstrong

The third edition of Draping for Apparel Design combines Joseph-Armstrong's classic step-by-step instructions with a user-friendly layout. To show how to turn two-dimensional drawings into three-dimensional garments, the author presents the following three draping principles and techniques: manipulating dart excess, adding fullness, and contour draping. New and updated design projects illustrate how to prepare a draping plan. Design analyses identify the creative elements of each design and help determine draping techniques required to develop patterns. This text emphasizes the importance of draping foundation garments for building more complex designs. Designers will gain essential skills to creatively apply draping techniques to their own designs.

This book is a very complete guide to draping and gives clear and detailed information on how to drape garments, both basic and complex. -- Margaret DeCubellis, Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), US
