Abstract

Draping on a mannequin is to manipulate a flat fabric to accurately fit the 3-D curves of the mannequin body to create desired designs, and is especially important for more complex designs. Fabric drape is influenced not only by fabric factors but also by their complex interactions. Although extensive information of 2-D fabric drape characteristics can be obtained from instrument measurement, Kenkare and Plumlee (2005) suggested that study of the drape characteristics of complex forms requires drape measurement not only on 2-D fabrics, but also on garments since other factors such as construction methods of clothing also affect the drape.
