dc.description.abstractThis study investigates the invention of the tailored garment in the early eleventh century, and traces its development from the draped garments worn by the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and Early Christians 2000B.C. to 475A.D. This study looks at each era individually examining fabrics, colours and motifs used as well as studies of key elements of clothing. Studying who wore specific items of clothing and how all these factors proclaimed peoples position with in social standing. The practical part of this study covers the creation of three costumes from different eras studied from early garments using completely draped fabric with no fabric cutting to a garment that is an early form of complex tailoring. The practical aspect not only visually demonstrates silhouettes of the time but also the techniques used and how they developed with time and what effect this had on the complexity of clothing. This study shows that clothing did developed gradually over time and that the function of clothing was always to accentuate the figure but the methods altered to reflect the desired look of the time.
