Elastic Body stocking pattern available in black and white striped jersey.
This experiment encapsulates all the directions outlined in Chapter 4 of the Kinetic Garment Construction thesis. Due to the elastic material, the body stocking addresses only the fundamental points. The black silhouettes throughout the thesis wear a black body stocking cut from the same pattern as the striped one presented here.
The seam lines run parallel to the outlined directions of the Kinetic Garment Construction theory, and the stripes highlight the subtle but important variations in grain direction as the fabric is wrapped around the body.
As a part of our belief in transparency Atacac would like to share the pattern and 3D-model for this garment. For this we ask, but do not demand, a small contribution of €10 to support us with our work of producing new sharewear patterns.
Print the pattern out on a large scale plotter or use the tile function if printing on a normal printer and print it in small pieces and then tape the pattern together.
When downloading you will get 4 different files. A png illustrating the arm, a pdf ready for print, a dfx that can be imported into any CAD/CAM software and a ZPrj with the pattern assembled in 3D. The ZPrj file can be viewed and altered in CLO.
