Access from EThOS:
This research arises from the awareness that the construction of a garment pattern requires satisfaction of complex variables to ensure finished garments fit and function correctly. Current pattern construction systems rely heavily on trial and error for their satisfaction, with little objective indication of ease requirements or insight into pattern philosophy. This study combines anthropometric measurements, pattern construction and human movement to investigate functional change and provide guidance on functional ease requirements to enable better fitting and functioning garments.
