Dressmaking isn’t my thing, but I came across the profile of Autodesk’s Artist in Residence, Amy Karle where she links to a her process of laser-cutting - via Pepakura Paper Craft - unique patterns for dresses.
There’s a bunch of topics covered by her process, including:
- 3D scanning (her body form)
- A brief introduction to the Pepakura Designer Software.
- Prep and Assembly
There’s a Verge video highlighting the process here…
