What is Haute Couture draping?
Draping is used to create patterns directly on the dress form.
Draping pattern is usually made from the white muslin (toile in French), only on the right side of the dress form, for the questions of cost. This muslin pattern is used to create a paper pattern, and then, you use a paper pattern to create your final dress.
Draping is used by the French Haute Couture Houses for creating bespoke clothes, in particularly cocktail and evening dresses, skirts, coats or jackets. With draping, you can change he form and proportions of your garment very easily.
