TRANSLATION OF BASIC PATTERN DRAFTING INTO CUSTOMIZED MEASUREMENTS
Students of Diploma in Fashion Design June 2019 batch presented a display of manipulated garments based on basic forms as part of their Pattern Drafting module on 10th January 2020.
Pattern drafting forms a template from which parts of a garment are traced onto fabric before being cut and assembled. It is one of the most important parts of garment creation. However, drafting in mass-produced manufacturing units is carried out by machines to meet the rising demand. No matter what method is used knowledge of pattern drafting is imperative for a fashion design aspirants. The drafting stage starts on paper with the dimensions of body measurements or standard measurement chart to create two dimensional straight and curved lines. These are then used as a basis to cut the fabric which is then sewn together to create a three-dimensional garment. The measurements taken into consideration for drafting are – side seams, shoulder seams, lines below the hip, armholes, necklines, and hip curves. Pattern making is a skilled technique which requires technical aptitude, understanding for design interpretation and a hands-on understanding of garment construction.
The students were tasked to translate the basic forms of garments to suit their respective measurements. The basic shapes of a skirt, corset, trouser, top, kurta, sharara, dress and blouse were used for the assigned task which was further enhanced by incorporating ruffles, pleats, darts, tassels, counter guidelines, bell sleeves, etc. and embellishments like zippers and belts.
