Making clothes by draping
Has anyone made clothes by draping on a mannequin or person's body? Instead of the usual pattern drafting,measuring..

I saw these videos on youtube.
The first is about establishing body lines
It's just like the ones in documentary Signe Chanel

This second video is a bit odd..
her method.. she seems to be drafting instead of draping..
She mentions she is self-taught, so I assume this is something different?

no what she's doing is quite lazy actually but you can only make one size garment.
she just takes half the body and makes a mannequin pattern. Draping is really really complicated(only cause I suck at it lol) what she does is more Moulage(dunno is that's an enlish term) technique's

oh I saw a book with that title.. moulage.. I think it means "molding." You place the fabric on the body to define the shape
I thought moulage is part of draping...

So draping is about how a fabric hangs on the body, right?
So you play with the textile's own character
like crispness or body and fineness...
and also how it will hang, the way it is cut.. straight-grain, cross-grain

I felt Yohji Yamamoto's fall collection it would be difficult to come up with some of the designs if you were drafting than draping

elle.com | Mulletproof

like I hadn't learned to create these sort of folds while drafting...
has to be done in real life

it cannot be done just by draping a piece of fabric, it has to be drafted but making alterations so there are more fabric in some places and kind of "direct" the fabric to hang in some places, then giving it the shape youre looking for on a dressform , to create this bubbles in some places but still be comfortable to wear. The grain of the fabric plays a big part on this.

I like draping scarves or random bits of fabric in various ways and belting them up to create dresses. But this is so technical. I guess if you need a style that is standardized... But very interesting, thanks for the post!

I made this by just draping 2 yards of satin on my body and closing it with a safety pin and belt

Thanks! Yes, I did make the necklace. It's a prototype of a future accessories line project I'm working one.
