Sculptured bodice draping
Fashion Draping Advanced
Important note The sculptured bodice draping technique is innovated and coined by Elena Ryleeva
In this course you will learn how to create 3D shapes of the bodice part of the garment. Through a series of video lessons you will be introduced to the principles of draping the shapes, the comprehension of how to sustain the shapes and how to cut the fabric in order to start the project. You will get the understanding of how the fabric affects the forms and also how it “helps” and “guides” you while exploring its potential.
You will learn about off-shoulder bodice foundation and how to prepare it for the project.
Elena demonstrates the draping of a few “sculptured bodice" versions - “abstract origami”, “origami flower” and “flower bud”. All these examples are based on Elena” approach of draping the shape from a single piece of fabric.
Marking, trueing the bodice in order to produce patterns are included in these courses as well.
