This is an optional class intended for students who want to see how the body is divided for clothing design. If you have purchased a form or are considering buying one this class will teach you how to mark and tape the torso before you begin to work.

If you have no need for a form you can skip this class and go directly to draping on a friend or family member. Students who take this class will gain better understanding of how to divide the figure for garment design.

Note: This is a how to demonstration that will walk you through steps of marking your form. The class is presented in real time with moments shown in high speed video, 4 times faster than real time. The high speed scenes allow you to see the process without skipping much of the process.
