Gradable Zero Waste Skirt and Blouse



This outfit represents a unique way to achieve multiple sizes within zero waste garments without using traditional grading methods. Instead, the pattern shapes remain constant across the size range while different garment sizes are achieved by varying the width of narrow trims inserted at strategic points. This works builds on my previous research focusing on zero waste pattern cutting.
