UPDATE. Mimi seems to have removed her videos from youtube.com. Whatabitch. Maybe I will need to make a draping video of my own to replace them…

Mimi from youtube.com teaches her version of draping*. I do mine more textbook style (actually that’s not true, I do mine the same way) but here she will demonstrate her techniques. More fun to watch if you actually have a form and some muslin* to follow along.

*Draping: A design technique where the fabric is actually draped on the body for design rather than drafting a paper pattern.

*Muslin: An inexpensive fabric used by many designers to test their designs for fit before construction so that they don’t waste their more expensive fabric.
