In fashion design, "draping" is the process of creating an actual garment or pattern directly on a dress form. To begin, use a design from your own fashion sketch. Or, use your fabric's natural properties as a design basis, playing around with it's natural drape & structure. There are many detailed steps to the actual "draping" process (for example, if you were to design a wedding gown from scratch).
