The Moulage is the foundation of the couture pattern drafting system taught by the Ecole Guerre-Lavigne in Paris. This is a system of measuring the figure and calculating and drafting a pattern that will fit the torso like a second skin, incorporating any of the infinite variations of shape the human figure can take. The CD book begins with some history of the development of pattern drafting systems. This is followed by a discussion of the proper way to measure the figure for this system. The CD includes a video demonstration of these measurements. Calculations of the measurements follow. Measurements are in both inches and metric. The book then shows, step by step, how to draft the moulage back and then the front. Common adjustments to the muslin is next, followed by instructions on drafting the men’s moulage. From the Moulage the book will cover how to add wearing ease to create the sloper or block (the basic unit of pattern drafting). A chapter on “special cases” follows, covering unusual situations such as osteoporosis. Finally, a discussion of how to use your sloper to check a commercial pattern will enable you to use this tool as a fitting aid, making it easier to adjust patterns to your figure.
