Abstract

This exploratory design research focuses on Roberts' subtraction cutting technique and dart manipulation with the intention of adding to the knowledge of apparel patternmaking. Three concepts were explored: Subtraction cutting functioning like a dart; however, not visually looking like one, subtraction cutting can use different shapes, and the direction of the joined subtraction cutting shapes impacts the length and volume of a garment. The implications of these concepts, for manufacturing and pedagogy, are also shared.
