Abstract

Sustainable approaches in apparel patternmaking have been applied and explored among various apparel designers. The concept of minimal waste design can be traced through historical dresses and is increasingly popular in modern clothing design. Designers such as Holly McQuillan embrace the zero-waste principles using unconventional patternmaking methods, which reincorporate all cut-out pattern pieces into the garment design and result in reduced pattern cutting sections and fabric in draped garments (Brown, 2010).

Keywords: sustainability, Minimal waste patternmaking, digital textile printing, Engineered Print
