Abstract

Although the drape characteristics of a piece of 2D flat fabric can be measured by a drape meter or by image analysis method, when fabrics go through several operations during garment constructions, their drape behaviors are altered. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to explore the effects of inverted pleats on the drapeability of different woven fabrics, since pleat is commonly used in garment construction for functional or aesthetic purposes.
