I am a great believer in draping on the stand.  I like to get students draping on the stand from the outset. So no more ” E to F = C to D less 1/3 A to B + 1/4″. I mean, what the hell does that mean ?  Tailors often will have to use these systems in order to develop their patterns, because their clients are all sorts of sizes and shapes. They do not have one standard shape to base all their patterns on.  But even then, the systems appear to be structured in such a way as to be completely incomprehensible to the beginner.

The best investment any would be pattern cutter could make is to buy a good mannequin. A mannequin will last a lifetime. It may need recovering every thirty years or so, but it should never need replacing. And should you decide to sell, it will have maintained its value pretty well. You try to find a second hand mannequin on Ebay and you will see that they very rarely come up.

The great thing about draping on the stand is that it is not theory. What you do on the stand is reality. I will often start my patterns from a block that has itself been developed from the stand. Initially I will cut out the basic shape in paper, then place the paper on the stand to develop the shape and the style lines further.
