Ease in its proper measure
Ease in its proper measure. The phrase expresses something well to solve before starting a model. Depending on the style and the fabric the pattern has to have one or another ease added. This is one of those elements that you have to know how to handle when making a pattern. The amount to be added is something that the pattern master must decide before beginning its development. From the success of this decision his work will be more or less fluid throughout the style development.
Before going on, let’s first define what the ease is. The ease is the volume that is added to the pattern in addition to given by the anatomical measurements. This volume is added taking into account two considerations.
On the one hand the pattern is added volume for facilitate movement to the garment. A garment made by applying only anatomical measurements could not be dressed. Except that the garment is made for elastic fabric. Therefore there is a type of volume that is considered to be movement ease. It is essential add this ease to the pattern for have a wearable garment. This is added on the three basic construction measures, chest, waist and hip. So this volume is essential for the garment’s wearableness and has to been incorporated into the measurements of the base pattern.
On the other hand there is another type of volume that is given to the garment. The style ease. This is added to the pattern depending on the look you want the garment once finished according to design. As the previous type of ease the amount is added to the construction measures depending on the design and the fabric used.
For a sheath dress will not be added ease:
Classic shift dress, you will just be given volume at the waist so you do not adjust it.
Tent dress, the volume will be added in chest, waist, hip and bass progressively.
