About This Class

A beginner Class with basic (and some advanced) techniques to create new fashion design ideas.  Learn draping skills to further develop and add to your Fashion Design process. 

Draping is used to develop basic Bodice, basic Skirt, basic Dress, a Circle Skirt, etc.  Students will learn how to manipulate muslin, create darts, how to mark muslin, which is then be used to draft a pattern.  Included in the curriculum is:

  • Working with a Dress Form

  • Working with muslin

  • Creating a Dart

  • Creating gathers/shirring

  • Draping a One-Dart Bodice

  • Draping a Two-Dart Bodice

  • Draping a Basic Skirt

  • Draping a Circle Skirt

  • Draping a Basic Dress

  • Tools needed for draping

The draping process is a very creative technique with inspires and empowersthe student to be more creative, innovative and have fun in the process. Learning how to Drape is an intuitive and spontaneous way to create new designs and come up with new ideas.

Learning how to be a great fashion designer includes the learning of the Draping process and technique.  The use of fabric as a way to "mold" it to a dress form is inspiring and creative when it comes to inventing new designs for that famous "Red Carpet Event" known as "The Oscars"-- those designs worn by those Celebrities were once Draped on a Dress Form.

Those beautiful evening gowns seen on the "Red Carpet" most likely were draped first, then through the process of fitting them on the actual body of the person wearing it, refined and perfected to fit correctly.

This Course starts with the basics: draping the basic bodice: One-Dart and Two-Dart Bodice, but then it moves into using more complex techniques such as draping the "Circle Skirt" which requires a little more practice to perfect.

This Course aims not only to teach, but also inspire students to use Draping techniques to be creative, innovative, and become a great Fashion Designer.

1. Short PROMO - Draping: welcome to draping fashions, where you will be able to use fabric and start positioning and pinning fabric unto address form in order to develop the structure for new ideas and new designs using the draping process. My name is Nino via I was an instructor at Fit Um, F I. D. E N Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. After taking this course, you will feel confident in using fabric as a source of inspiration to create your ideas and bring them to life. Even though this is a basic course in draping where, yes, you will learn how to drape a one dark bodies and a too dark bodies and a basic skirt. You will also learn things. There are a little more advanced, like draping a circle skirt on a basic dress. If you're pursuing your interests in fashion design, well, then this course will at a whole new dimension to your knowledge, off the fashion design process. If you've taken any my other courses in pattern making and sketching and collection development, well, then this is a great addition to your learning experience off fashion design. So get some fabric. Let's start driving. I will see you in class 2. #1 - Intro to Draping and Class overview.: everyone. Welcome to basic draping for fashion design. My name is Nino via and I'm your instructor. If you have taken any of my other courses in fashion design like pattern making and sketching and collection development, then you know that I will say an instructor at fit um, f i. D e n Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. This is a basic draping course. What is draping well draping for fashion design is the process off positioning and painting fabric unwto address for to develop the structure off a garment design. After draping, the fabric is removed from the dress form and used to create the pattern for the garment. Now that is the technical definition off draping. But I personally think that draping is a lot more than that. See, when you're draping, you are like a sculptor. You are like an artist. You are creating a new design. You can use draping as a source of inspiration. For example, go to your local fabric store by two yards of family that you really like, take it home and use draping as a tool as a technique to create new designs. Draping can be fun, and it should be fun. It should be playful and inspiring. Now you will need a dress for obviously, the's. Dress forms are not cheap. They cost anywhere from a few $100.2000 dollars and maybe more. You can find a used one online. So do some research, and they come in different sizes. They come in a size four size, six size eight. If you can find a four or six or eight size, that would be ideal. Also, you will need pains so you can pin the fabric into the form. You will need scissors and they penso and a ruler thistles, a clear see through plastic ruler and muslin. What is Muslim Muslim is a raw, unprocessed cotton fabric. It's very inexpensive. It is used to drape. And then once the pattern is completed, the drapers and thrown away. Uh, you also will need dotted paper. That paper looks like this, that the paper is used to make patents. If you want to learn about pattern making, watch my other course on basic pattern making. And in fact, I suggest you do so on enroll in a pattern making class because draping and pattern making they go hand in hand. They work together, as you will see. So, uh, for some of you, this is the first time that you are actually draping so as a way to get your feet wet, so to speak, take some fabric, put on some music and just have fun. But have fun, be creative and enjoy the process. Maybe something like this. Listen, before we get to the fancy stuff, we have to get some basic fundamental principles in draping. It's very important to get the foundation really solid, right? It's like building a house. You gotta get their foundations really solid before you can get into fancy stuff. So in this course will cover the basic bodies front and back to basics skirt. A simple dress or variations of address will do a circle skirt. So those are the basic ideas. Watch out, throwing a few extra things here and there. But this is a basic draping course that's important to solidify before you move on to the fancy stuff. Okay, I'll see you in class 3. #2 - Draping the 2-Dart Bodice.: Okay, so let's get right to it. In this class. I want to show you how to drape a bodice, and I'll due to variations, I will do it too. Dark bodies. And I would also give you a demo on one dark bodies. Then I will. I will show you how to take all this information from the Drake while the cross markings and pencil marks and transfer the information to dotted paper so that you will have a real pattern that you can use to cut really fabric. Okay, before we get started with the draping part, let's get familiar with some of the terminology that we use while we're draping. This is the center front. This is the Princess Seymour Princess lying. This is the apex. The center of the bust isn't as the apex right there. Shoulder. Seen this, your site seem and its finds. The waistline is concerned. When we mark the waistline, we use the bottom off the tape. Also, let's do a quick recap on grain lines. If this is our role of fabric for Muslim, the edge of the fabric is known as the salvage salvage. Here and here. The grain line parallel parallel to the salvage is known as the left grain. And also we have the cross grain, and we have bias. 45 degree angle. All right, we're gonna start with a piece of Muslim 18 inches across and 24 inches in length and lend When I when I say let I mean, this is the selvage just the edge of the fabric of the Muslim. And we always always want to drape where the edge of the family salvage is parallel to center front. In other words, you want a drink like this? Not like that. Okay, Next, we start by drawing a grain line one inch away from the edge, one inch away from the salvage we drug one inch gray line, and then we divide the Muslim half and draw a cross grain perpendicular to center front. Now, most students ball in the most. But some students make the mistake of starting by draping like this. You they placed the Muslim like this. And then what happens that you have no fabric to complete this section? That's why we have a cross. Great. Which tells us that this cross grain must come across the bus level the apex level. So the cross grain across the apex center front is pinned onto the centre front and you want to put the paint at a certain angle. You want to put the paints at this angle because watch what happens if you do it this way. Guess what this comes undone. See that? So you don't want to do that? You want to put your pin at a certain angle, and the angle is like that in this direction here. Now, this is a tricky part here. Careful, are you compass? You don't want to go straight across this way. What you want to do is you go up about an inch yourself from the neckline, go but in h and kind of a little bit and then go upward like this. So only this piece gets cut off. See that and then slowly use clip these necklines so that the fabric falls nicely onto the bodies. Will put a pin right there. Yeah, Okay, pin. And basically, now what happens is that all this fabric this becomes one dart the waistline dark and this excess fabric becomes the shoulder dark. So what you want to do is. You want a smoother muslin until you come to Princess Seam and you put a little pin and you put it across Mark. Now I'm using a Sharpie, but you should use a pencil. Always use a sharp pencil, put it across Mark right there and then smooth all this fabric. Right, So that watch this, all this excess fabric message smooth. He used my own cross smart from the princess scene. You're gonna take all this fabric, your smooth it up like this, and then fold this under like that and you could see how we're creating our first dog. Here is our sights seen. Will put pins on the site seem okay. And now all this excess fabric here will become our dark. How do we do that again? We smooth muslin on the waistline until we come to again the Princess line of the princess . See and put a little pain where that is right there. And little cross mark. And then all this excess fabric will be folded under to create the dark. So watch this. I'm gonna take this fabric for crease it here smooth and fold it under. Now what happens? Notice There's some tension. This, um, pulling here. So we want to eliminate that. So we take our scissors and we slash seal this tension right here. You want to eliminate that? And by slashing to the waistline, there is a tension. It's gone. It's nice and smooth and flat on. You might want to do another one right next to it. Maybe even the third ones. Any excess fabric below the waist. You can go ahead and trim it off. Cream it away. Models will mark using the bottom of the tape. The bottom of the tape is the waistline. We've got Mark our waste lie. You're gonna mark our site scenic and feel it with your fingers again. Mark, you're such a scene and the our whole and we go into Mark, are neckline and with the neckline, meets the shoulder and with the shoulder meets the arm home. And also it's mark are apex in a mark with two fabrics. Meat. Okay, so that basically you end up with these two cross Mike's? No, we're gonna mark where these two fabrics cross over where they meet, so that if you remove the pains, you will notice you have this markings right here. We can train the extra fabric here side. We don't need fabric. We could trim all this away. Okay, Next class. I'm gonna show you how to take all this information, all these cross marks and pencil marks and transfer them to dotted paper and make a nice clean pattern, okay? 4. #3 - Transferring 2-Dart Bodice drape to Dotted Paper.: Okay, So what you want to do next is to create the dart. These lines here are known as the legs, the legs off the dart. The end of the dart is known as the vanishing point. Here's the other dark, and this is the apex, the vanishing point. The end of the dark never goes to the apex. You want to back away from the apex anywhere between 1/2 inch and 3/4 of a niche. So from the apex you go 1/2 inch or 3/4 and then you draw the legs off the dark like that. Okay, next we fall. The dark closed like this, and we put depends in a certain direction. So if this is the died, we put the pin perpendicular to the dart. We closed a dark and we at similar ones. Normally, we have 1/4 of an inch similar loans at the neckline, half inch similar loans at the shoulder, half inch of the arm hole. If there's a sleeve, half inch of the site seem and half inch at the waistline. Next, you want to transfer all this information from the Muslim from the Drake onto dotted paper to create a pattern. So all these cross lines, all these the legs of the dark, for example, a lot. These cross marks seam allowance using a tracing wheel. Either it looks like this, or he's another variation. You take your Muslim your drake, and you eat a picnic to the dotted paper pin, a pin, a pin, a pin it or Scotch tape, Scotch tape, Scotch tape. And you trace all this information on to dot of paper so that you end up a pattern that looks like that. Okay, and that's how you create a basic pattern. And so again, I guess it earlier. It's a good idea to take a course in pattern making either mine or somebody's because pattern making and draping. As you can see, they go hand in hand. They work together in conjunction with each other, so it's good to know pattern making. The last final step is to paint dotted paper onto the form to make sure that it looks good and it's perfect and all that. So that's why pattern making and draping kind of work together the okay, so next class, I'm gonna show you how to do a one dark bodies. All right, 5. #4 - Draping the 1-Dart Bodice.: so I'm gonna show you how to drape. May 1 dark about it's We'll start with the same size Muslim as previously, 18 inches across by 24 in length, 18 by 24. And once again, we're going to start by drawing a one inch grain line away from the salvage from the salvage of the Muslim. And remember, don't start like this and what you have you'll be missing fabric here. So just go up a few inches, maybe 34 inches of self and start pinning this grain line onto the centre front off before and you can pain. We'll put a few pains to send the front like this. You send the bottom of the tape and we'll start with the neckline area and again, do not cut straight across. Don't do that. You have to do is you go up about an inch from the neckline, go up but a nature self and cut for about one inch and then go upward. Just think up in the sky, Okay? You gonna go up and then with the sisters were gonna slash the Muslim to release tension so that it lays flat onto the form so again. We're gonna find our princess line or princess. See here with your fingers. Feel with the seamless and we'll put a pin right there and we put it across Mark I So And then we're gonna take all this fabric here and fold it on the knees just like this to create our dark. Now again, seal this axis. Here. This tension here, we're going to slash into it and release the tension. Wanna put a temporary pain right here? But, uh, watch what happens As we start slashing towards the waistline. This tension goes away and you will have to readjust your dark a little bit. So it's nice and flat and smooth. Maybe a couple of times, All this extra fabric we don't really need. Just earlier, we can Treem all of this. See that tension is gone. Well, one more slash. Right here. Way Go. So, basically, that's pretty, My chick. I'm gonna mark my waistline. Bottom of the tape. There's my waistline. Mark went to fabrics, meat. Continue your waistline again. You want to make sure that when you release the pain you have this is your dark. You see that? I'm gonna be in the back. Continue marking your side seeming on And where the shoulder meets the arm hole will mark the arm, hole and the shoulder and the next line, just like we did earlier. Again. Little little dots just like this. Okay, lets marked the apex. We need to know the apex is because we have to back away from the apex to create our dark, Remember? Okay, so there is any packs, right? They will put a cross, and that's pretty much it. But you know the routine by now. Between this little bit of draping and some pattern making, you know that the next step is to transfer all these little cross marks to data paper at seam allowance created dart, threw a dart, etcetera, and then go from there. Okay. Next, I'm gonna show you how to drape a back. Very simple basic back that we can now find with. Okay, 6. #5 - Draping the Back Bodice. Plus, pinning muslin the correct way.: Okay, we're ready for a basic bodies back. We have a lovely piece of Muslim with our one inch grain line one inch away from the edge of the muslin. I'm gonna paint this one, each grain line onto centre back off the form. So start with a few inches up on top and pain your muscle in onto the four. Now again, watch what happens here pending is important. Watch this. If I put my pain in this direction, right, watch what happens if I pull even slightly on the Muslim? The whole thing falls apart. So what you want to do is you want to pain. You're Muslim, onto centre back in this direction so that it anchors the Muslim onto the form so that even if I pull and you should not pulled by the way, But even if I do pull on it likely see, it's not gonna go anywhere. It's salad in there. Okay, I've pinned my center back onto the four. I'm going to start with my neckline and just like we did in the front, go up. But by nature, so clips and up we go and then we're gonna clip downward towards the neckline so that the Muslim will lay flat onto the four. They put a few pins into the neckline on the neck line right there on his shoulder. Okay. The dark here in the back. Uh, line aligning with your princess. Seen Princess line. See that? So this is standard measurement, which is about an inch to an inch and 1/4 is the with off the dark. So I'm gonna do a smooth my Muslim find where the Princess line is put a little pain right here and a little cross mark like so. And then I'm going to measure an inch on Incheon record. In this case, I'll do an inch. This is size four form. It's very small. So one h dark. So from my cross mark coming measure one inch right there and that will become my dark. I'm going to take this cross mark, fold it over to the other one like that and eventually this will become my dark, which you'll see in a minute I'm gonna close and again all this pulling off his tension is to be released on. The way to do that is we slash always slash towards the waistline like so, and you'll see that as you get familiar and comfortable with draping, you've know that at some point, any extra fabric that might get in the way can easily be trimmed, including the site seem, well, not the sightseeing but part of the sites public and keep slashing if necessary. Maybe a few more slashes towards the waistline and okay, we'll put a pin with with the waistline and the sightseeing meat, we'll put a pin will put a few pins onto the site scene again. If you see that this fabric gets in the way is go ahead and trim the fat. Here we go. OK, we're going to mark our waistline. And again, it's the bottom of the tape going to mark with sites seen hiss and the arm hole and our shoulder and neck line. At some point, I want to bring the two pieces the front in the back together at the site seem and at the shoulder to see if it fits. Correct me if the site seems match, so there's two ways you can do that. You can either take the two pieces of Muslim together and pain. The two pieces together the front and the back put pins on the sightseeing or a another way off. Matching is you Take your one side and you fold it over to the other side. And you pain fabric to fabric. Not to the form, but fabric to fabric, fabric to fabric, not to the form. Okay, so there's space between the Muslim and the form. Still, you want to make sure that the site seems are the same length on and everything falls into into place. Now, one last thing about this dark here we haven't We haven't done anything with start basically the dark. Use it. Here's the dark. The dark is usually seven inches in length. So from the waistline, you measure seven inches and that is the end of the dark vanishing point of the dark. OK, next I'm gonna show you how to drape basic skirt 7. #6 - Draping a Basic Skirt.: Okay, lets Drake a skirt. I'm gonna show you how to drink a very basic simple skirt. We'll start with a piece of muslin for team by 24 from the edge of the Muslim from the salvage, gonna come in one inch and draw a length grain and from the top off the Muslim, we're gonna measure two inches and put a little cross mark, which will be our waistline. So from the top two inches waistline and that's in the waistline. Gonna measure seven inches, seven inches and we're gonna drive across grain perpendicular to center front. So top two inches. Waistline, seven inches cross green. We're going to pain center, front of the Muslim, onto the centre front off form. Next, we're going to put some pins on your cross. Great. Now, as you can see, these forms go up and down. And the reason is that when you're draping, for example, a skirt you want to be an eye level with the skirt so that you can see if your cross grain your grain line is off or not. For example, you don't want to drink if you're across green, does that you see there saying so you would have a a cross grain that's parallel to the floor, parallel to the floor straight across. So we're gonna smooth the Muslim. But if you're smooth too tight, then it would be that the skirt will be too tired and she can't even walk. So as you're smoothing, I want you to pinch a little bit of Muslim just like a little pinch, so that you will have a liberal ease. And so now, as you're doing that, this model pinch coming across to the site seem we're going to pain the Muslim onto the site seem okay, So again, here's my ease for a little comfort and then pins on the site scene. Okay, I'm gonna get rid of the extra fabric here Muslim that I don't really need. It's only gonna get in the way Someone trade some of this off, Okay? And then whatever is left here will become my dart. And we're going to place the dark on the princess line on the princess. See? So I'm gonna smooth your Muslim Find out with the princess. See, is on the waistline little pan and cross mark. And then we're going to take this excess fabric and gonna fold it to create our daughter like So Okay, going to slash from the top to the waistline so the Muslim lays flat onto the four. Keep adjusting your Muslims. That's nice and smooth. Any extra fabric that's gonna get in the way, you can go ahead and train away, and once again with your pencil or marker, I'm going to mark the waistline mark where the two fabrics meat, just like we did in previous darks, so that when you open the dark there it is. That's your dark now in the front, the length off the dark, the length of the dark in the front is 3.5 inch, 3.5 inch is the left. So just to make a little note 3.5 is the length of the dark. Okay, let's continue marking our waistline mark. Your sites seem okay, and basically, that's how you drape a very simple one. Dark skirt. Same thing happens for the back. The length of the back dark is 5.5 inch instead of 3.5 3.5 of the front 5.5 for the back. Sometimes you'll see a skirt where instead of one dark, we have two darts. So basically, you take this amount instead of having one dot you split it into two darts. This is a too dark skirt, very similar to the one dark. The only difference is that we have two darts instead of one that we have 1/2 inch symbol. Alan's all around the length. The lent really depends on how long you want to skirt. The next step is to take this draped onto daughter paper and then make a pattern from that . I'm not gonna do that. That's part of your pattern making course. So next class, I'm gonna show you how to do a circle skirt, which is pretty cool. 8. #7 - Draping the Circle Skirt.: Okay, I'm gonna show you how to drape a circle skirt. Piece of Muslim 18 inches across by 24 inches in length. The length of a school after. Doesn't really matter said to you the length of the skirt, but let's start with a 18 by 24 Piece of Muslim from the edge of the Muslim from the selvage. Coming one age green line from the top of the Muslim measure. Six inches, unlike two inches in the previous skirt. Let's come down six inches and put a little cross smart. And that will be our waistline. Okay, Next, I want you to measure on your waistline. Measure an inch and 1/2 about an inch and 1/2. So take your tape measure or your ruler and measure 1.5 inches is right there. Okay, 1.5, and we're going to put a pain. Put a pin right at that 1.5 mark. Now, watch this. The magic happens, is gonna release this pain here from the top of the Muslim. I'm going to slash the Muslim down to that pen like this. Okay, This we can get rid of this So watch this from the top slash Down to that pin cross mark. And from that pin cross Mark not watching most shift the Muslim in this direction so that from that pin cross mark, I'm creating a flare. See that? That's a flake right there. So slash and pig pain slash and pit. And under the same thing. One more time. I'm gonna measure an inch and 1/2 an inch and 1/2 right there. Okay, Put a pin at what? Each 1.5 feet across Mark. And once again from the top of the Muslim Slash. Down to that cross mark. Okay, let's get this. And again, we're going to create another flare from that pink cross mark. Just like that. Do not we have two flares, so you get the idea again. Pain slash. Pivot your Muslim to create a flare. So he's flare number one. Number two will do it one more time. Slash your Muslim from the top to that pain. Cross mark right there. Let's get rid of this and once again, shift your Muslim to create another flare. So look what's happening here. We have 123 flares. Okay, until you get to the side seam. We're gonna keep that nice and flat, and we're gonna just mark your side seam and mark your waistline all the way across. The last thing we're gonna do is to create the hem line the length of the skirt. I'm gonna lift my four. And again the length is up to you. I'm gonna use the bottom of the form right here as the length of the skirt. So I'm going to take my pencil marker and come across and mark the length off the skirt, following the form all the way around. And if you want Teoh, just get rid of some of the extra fabric. Then it's a matter of connecting the dots literally to create a smooth circular shape and that becomes your circle. Skirt off this technique that I just demonstrated. This technique on how to create a circle skirt can be used in so many ways, not just on the skirt, Like for example, watch this. I'm going to destroyed. Discouraged to show you other options. Watch this. I have just created a little pepper. Now you can add this to another skirt to address, and so on. I can also use this as and that life or a sleeve and so on. So that technique can be used to create other designs. Other multi. Okay. Next, I'm gonna show you how to drink a dress. Now I'll do a very simple basic shape silhouette. But in the process of doing that, I'm gonna give you different options. I'm gonna show you how you can take a very simple basic shape and silhouette of address and transform it and evolve it into other variables as a variation by using tux and please Suri . So So I'll see you next class. 9. #8 - Draping a Basic Dress (and variations of it...).: Okay, let's drape. Address. I started with a piece of Muslim 20 inches across, and the length is really up to you. How long you want your dress? I'm going to start with the neckline. Obviously, I'm gonna bring my form down to my eye level so I can see better. And just like we did in the bodice, you want to have a few inches? Maybe three inches. So and then the next line starts. So I'm gonna put a little cross mark a pin and across Mark, and once again, I'm going to start by watch this across and going up, just like we didn't about us. And then we'll slash down towards the neck line and thus releasing the Muslim so that it falls flat onto the form. In this case, I'm gonna keep it fairly. Rectangular. Very slim. So what happens is that what are we gonna do with all this fabric? So I'm going to pin center front, as we always do. Put a few pins right here and here at the waistline and keeping this slim. And the question is, OK, well, if I'm gonna keep this slim, I'm smoothing my Muslim all around the hip area, and then I'm left with all this fabric. I'm gonna keep my shoulder clean. No, no dart on top. I'm gonna put the dark right into into the sights. Seen I'm gonna temporarily put a pain to just to keep this in shape. I'm gonna come back today. I wanted minimize all this extra fabric, so I'm just gonna go ahead and cut most of this. So here's my Muslim. My hip area. I'm gonna put a few pains Onley for on my Muslim so it stays in place. I want some ease. You don't want a skin tight, so I'm gonna put some ease in the in the Muslim as part of the draping process and smooth your Muslim so that this becomes my dark. Gonna go back to this start here and create a dark that will go from the apex into the site C.
