Overview of the 3D Draping Module 2 course at London College of Fashion

Draping in 3D on a dressmakers stand/mannequin (often called modelling) is a pattern cutting method used by many designers, where designs are created using the fabric and then transferred onto paper, to make a pattern.  The quick results achieved with 3D draping mean you can see the garment come to life right in front of you, allowing you to experiment with fabric and adjust details quickly and easily.
