Princess bodice by Elena Ryleeva,
Draping or Moulage is the process of manipulating a flat piece of fabric directly on a three dimensional dress form. The starting point for this technique can be a designer sketch or the process of draping on the dress form itself.
Once the draping is done the fabric is removed from dress form in order to transfer the results of draping onto paper, at this point it is tome for creating sewing patterns.
Princess bodice – a bodice that provides close fit by using the seams commonly named “princess line”. This seam goes from the middle of the shoulder through the apex( highest bust point) down the waistline. This seam separates the front into two long panels. The
same approach also applies to the back, separating it into two pieces.
Following the detailed video instructions you will learn how to measure and cut the fabric for draping each of princess panel separately, how to place the pieces of fabric on a dress form, how to control the ease, how to manipulate and pin the fabric in order to drape each of the princess panels. Once the draping steps are completed and marked you will transfer the drape onto paper and create paper patterns.
Princess bodice patterns will be another great addition to your pattern library as you will be able to use them for a varieties of designs starting from casual wear – tops, blouses, dresses, etc. to gowns and wedding attire.
