Abstract

Competitive conditions of today's market feature the companies which make difference. This situation led manufacturers to consider the personal production methods, which is increasing in importance. The fact that human body differs from person to person causes to problems based on harmony between garment and body shapes. This situation reveals the importance of production according to individual body measurements and body shapes in garment production. In this study, a basic dartless pattern drafting method was made for woman by using individual body measurements and Assyst CAD pattern making system in order to solve problems related to the harmony between clothing and body shape. While designing the pattern, 12 body measurements were used. The pattern, which was made on rectangular basis, was separately designed for 20 women who have 'triangle' and 'hourglass' shapes. So as to check the pattern, a prototype was made by using batiste fabric. The usability of this pattern for women having different body shapes, and evaluations of fit of prototype were done by users and professionals within the framework of prepared criteria. Definitive statistics of values were calculated for 20 consumers and 3 professionals. At the end of the study it was determined that designed pattern drafting is useable for both body shapes. It is thought that providing designed pattern drafting only by using body measurements will constitute the infrastructure of made to measure production process by using data through body scanning systems.
