This text combines step-by-step instructions illustrated to present the principles and methods of draping. Author Helen Joseph-Armstrong incorporates three draping techniques- manipulating dart excess, adding fullness and contour draping - in design projects featured throughout the text.

Projects begin with a draping plan and fashion drawing to identify its creative elements and determine the draping technique required. The author describes the drape of the basic dress and its relationship to every garment in a clothing collection.
