The aim of this thesis is to investigate the possibility of using a commercial finite element analysis (FEA) package to assemble technical apparel from its constitutive pattern pieces. The potential to predict the form and functionality of an assembled garment without the need to create a physical prototype is attractive to pattern engineers and others involved in the design and development of technical apparel.
