The first national meeting of textile and clothing professors took place in Madison, Wisconsin in June 1959. With a mission to advance excellence in education, scholarship and innovation, and their global applications, the International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) is a professional and educational association of scholars, educators, and students in the textile, apparel, and merchandising disciplines in higher education.

This paper provides information and insight about using three dimensions in teaching patternmaking software. In particular, it addresses the advantages of using 3D garment simulation in advanced patternmaking courses for upper-level fashion design students. The objective of this course project is to teach students use of the patternmaking software program to create a production garment for a number of apparel markets and make patterns by using additional software, which allows 3D garment simulation to analyze the fit to the body while using a dressform and a 3D virtual model avatar.
