Draping off the Stand





As I was digging through my collection of fabric, I decided to play around and drape a piece off my mannequin stand. Draping is good alternative to 2D Sketching and is basically the process of positioning and pinning test fabric on dress forms to design clothing. This was a good way for me to construct various shapes, thus exploring the visual impact certain placings and fittings had on the body. I used light synthetic fabric because it is easy to work with. Its best to use more rigid fabrics once you are more comfortable with methods of draping. The images above show some examples of some of my quick design ideas.
