Abstract: Drape is a unique property that allows a fabric to be bent in more than one direction with double curvature. For many years, researchers studied fabric drape in order to evaluate the aesthetic performance of finished garments. However, the behaviour of fabric drape may not be same as the behaviour of garment drape stand on the same object by visually observation. Such difference would affect the prediction of garment drape based on fabric drape. At present, the study of the difference between the behaviour of fabric drape and garment drape is very limited. This study aims to examine the difference of the behaviour of fabric drape and garment drape through drape coefficient analysis and drape profile analysis. The effects of fabric mechanical properties on fabric drape and garment drape are also investigated experimentally. The outcomes of this study can improve apparel design and fabric end-use applications, and it also contributes to improve the prediction of garment drape for the apparel CAD system.
