Shingo Sato draping technique

"The pattern pieces are never stay still, they transform and rotate through different perspctives as a piece of puzzle or geometrical maps even as tie themselves up in mental knots."
Wow, here is a really interesting (let's say jaw dropping!) draping technique called Transformational Reconstruction. It starts with a tight fitting muslin made out of basic pattern blocks... (the bodice pattern is a basic one with just 2 darts at the front, I think this is essential because you want to eliminate as much  pattern lines as possible)
Then the lines of the design are drawn right on the muslin. The muslin is then cut up in pieces, following the lines. Then the muslin pieces are used as pattern pieces and the lines are transferred onto the fashion fabric. Easy as a pie, right?.......
